Veterans Day Salute



Today we would like to give thanks to all Veterans.
Your selfless commitment to protecting us is appreciated more
than you will ever know.


Here are a few snaps of Ron, Addie's dad, from his Army days as an MP.


This is one of our favorite pictures taken from our balcony in Frankfurt.


Have a great day!

Hi Addie--

I'm glad I found your blog. I am a border collie, too. Tomorrow will be my one year Homecoming anniversary...the day my Alphas picked me up. I was only 8 weeks old then.

Come by my blog and see how I've grown up, too! I shall be checking and sniffing you from now on.

Your new pal,
Fenway

We're friends (and fans!) of Fenway too. He is a great guy!

Your Pals,

Amber said...

Addie...you look so cute in your camo!

Tell your Mom thanks for her input on my allergy issue. So far, not alot of change. I'm not scratching my itchies too bad but the Benadryl is really helping although Mom and Dad don't like to keep me sedated on that too much either. :) They have decided to only feed me cooked brown rice for a couple of days to see how that goes and then they want to change my food to a more natural raw diet.??? The brown rice is pretty tasty with a little olive oil on it. ;)

My Mom wanted me to tell you that yesterday in her class of Kindergarteners she taught them about what a veteran is and other important stuff like that...well, later she asked them what a veteran was and one little girl said "a veternarian helps animals." Mom thought it was very cute and funny. :)

Licks,
Nala

Ruby said...

happy veteran's day indeed. I don't have any family in the military (except my father in law is a 22 year retired Navy chief), but I do work on the largest Naval Base in the world as an educational support officer to the sailors, and I really respect what they do for us.

Very nice tribute.
Oh! the horrors of war.

Yes! is that Frankfurt Germany?
We went on a mini cruise down the Rhine last December,but it spoiled it because, we had too much food on ship, and I wanted to taste the food on the Christmas markets.

hi there pretty addie!!

you are always welcome to join us.. :D

and oh, we don't need any suitcase for the beach trip. it is just an hour's drive (although it is in another island and 2 cities away).. we take something called a jeepney or a rented car.

i am so excited to swim again but i don't think Poopie has any clue about the beach as this will be her 1st time... wish us luck that all will go as planned!!!

drooly kisses,

Aki
