TAG, You Are It!

Sitka and Mom (Andrea)

Several of you asked for a link to the therapy dog article that has been reprinted several times. I was asked to provide an article about Sitka. When I began to write the article I had a deep feeling it should be written in Sitka's voice. I battled over writing the article in this manner, but felt a clear direction from my Heavenly Father. It is a simple article, but most importantly it gives GOD the glory. Sitka states in the article, "I go wherever GOD leads and my Mom and Dad will take me."

2)Dancing with my Heavenly more two left feet!

Thanks for tagging me. Love your "8 things that you look forward to". Those are nice pics! Tell you what, I'll teach you a little bit of "guitar" but you have to give me "voice lessons". Deal? :)

God bless. Love and blessings to you.

Yes, won't it be lovely someday to be in our eternal home?

Great picture, your dog is so pretty! I like big dogs but I do have asthma and am allergic, so I really need a short haired dog if I am to have one.

Glad we have some things in common about the housework, lol!

It is always fun to learn more abotu my blogging friends.Loved the photos too!

BTW I can rarely get onto your computer just "aborts the process" ...strange huh?

Blessings as you remain true to all you are called to do...and than includes the way you speak truth through Sitka! :)

Edie said...

Ah thank you so much for thinking of me. I will try to work on this later today, can't do it this morning. Sorry I didn't make it by yesterday.

I loved reading about you. We have a lot in common. :)

Go Sitka! You know I love that dog. :)

Sheryl said...

How old is Sitka? We have a 2 year old boarder/collie mix, as I was reading your articles on therapy dogs I was wondering if Jake would have the qualifications. He would need some training, but he is a very loving, loyal dog. What kind of training did you go through and how long did it take?

I'll bet this post took a long time to work on!
