Hi Brenda! Our other dogs snored all day and night long...Rosie has the Poodle nose, so maybe we wont be lulled to sleep with snorts and snores!? She also has the Shihtzu tail and teeth...but even so, shes a cutie! I love that your Yorkie is 15...amazing that she has lived so long...but when I read that my heart broke just a little because dogs should live as long as their humans!! Enjoy every precious day! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

Thanks so much for the nice comment - it made my day!! Im glad you get a kick out of the mister, most days Id just like to kick him! He is slowly warming up to little Rosie, but Im sure she will win him over - his tiny black heart is made of mush after all! Thanks Again! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

That is the sweetest most thoughtful gift Ive ever heard of! You have a very good friend! Its been a long week, Im sleep deprived and havent gotten much done but its also been filled with laughter, fun and lots of little kisses - in other words, its been perfect! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

Riiiiiiight...the mister who wakes up when a singular pine needle lands on the roof, has developed the unbelievable ability to sleep through those middle of the night potty trips out into the freezing cold rain! I hope I live through potty training because if I dont our house will become one big toilet and sweet Rosie will starve! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

Dear Disappointed...did you try my recipe? If so, you can hardly be disappointed! Sure, its not Paseos...only Paseos is Paseos, but its close enough to pass for a cousin! And yes, black beans, because, unless youre color-blind, Paseo DOES use black beans in their Beans! Thanks for your comment...it reminded me that I havent made these beans for a while, so Ill make them for the BIG game tomorrow - hopefully theyll bring the Seahawks good luck! xo, Nan To: nans17@hotmail.com
