My favorite puppy picture of Nellie they day we brought her home.
Nellie’s 8th Birthday Tribute:
Today you are 8 yrs old and I have loved you each and every day of those 8 yrs. You were a result of Norman and I thank him everyday also for giving me you. We were going to pick a male but there was only one male in the litter and you won our hearts. You were such a great puppy never had any problems with you. In the above picture you were named nurse nellie as your daddy had surgery on his leg 3 days before we brought you home. You were so gental with him, you still are now that he is 12 you are carefull of him. We only had one major scare with you through out your 8 yrs and that was when you were 1.5 yrs old and you decided to jump off the loft level of our new house we were building. You broke your hip and needed surgery to take out the broken piece and suture your hip back in the socket. You healed up fast and has never had a problem with it since. You have given me 3 very special litters of puppies and have made 17 people very happy as you have given them a piece of you with there puppy, including me. You saved the best for last and gave me Glory to follow in your footsteps and she has some pretty big footsteps to fill as you are one heck of a dog, family member, hunting partner, friend! You may only have your SH title but you are a MH out in the field. Hope you enjoyed your Sasakatchewan trip as I missed you each day you were gone and next year I will be there to hunt with you again there. Welcome home little turd!
A good time was had by all.
10/7/12 was Nellie’s 8th Birthday. She just returned home from a week hunting in Saskatchewan and she got quite the home-coming with a Birthday cake. Misty Shore’s Chesapeakes was nice enough to share their Birthday blog with us so we used the same recipe they used since her dogs loved it. Take a moment to hop on over to their blog and take a peak at what their chesapeakes are up to. Thank you Misty Shore’s for letting me use your recipe, it was easy to cook and my gang loved it also.
Here is the recipe for those of you who would like to try it also for upcoming occasions.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup corn oil
4 oz. jar baby food, meat, beef, chicken, lamb (I used chicken and rice)
2 Tablespoons real bacon bits
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour an 8x5x3 inch loaf pan. Mix first five ingredients together until smooth. Add bacon bits and mix.
The frosting was a mixture of canned pumkin and plain yogurt. 8 rawhide chewies as the candles.
Right after Nellie got home she got to enjoy her Birthday cake, she had to share with the gang and everyone LOVED it.
The guys have sent me some pictures of the Canada trip. They are doing well and the dogs are all having fun.
All 4 dogs are getting along great!
