Jo here:  Thanks to everybody who was so kind and sympathetic about my ride on the ice!

To Tober and KB, yes I have Yak Traks (try Amazon) but when we went out it was wet on the streets and sidewalks and I thought it would just continue to thaw instead of getting colder.  You can be sure I will wear them everytime I go out next winter.  Thanks!

To Bertie, no I have never played rugby and truly hope to not start at this time.  Glad your Grand Dad made it OK in his fall.My best wishes to him!

Now about four of you suggested (you know who you are) that Stella's many kisses on my face pulled me through this fall with no serious injury and who knows, you could be right, I suppose!  Thanks to you.

To Stella from down under, who thinks your head is a funny place to keep a goose egg.  I would agree with you on this one, and now it is gone, and most of the hurt with it.

To Kim who said its too bad we don't fall like an 8 year old anymore.  This is a fact, Kim, having lived here in Minniesnowda for most of my life, I have taken a lot of falls and if I were an 8 year old rugby player I probably wouldn't have even noticed this one.

To Sue who fell on the ice  in the presence of her 8 or 10 dogs who comforted her by climbing on top of her, which got her laughing and we all know laughter is good medicine!

A couple of years ago, I had knee replacement surgery and when I fall I am afraid of that bionic knee falling to pieces, but it proved itself hearty. Maybe one of the reasons is the White Dog Army  is
sending White Dog positive energy and safe travel vibes.

I am very grateful for all   your friendship

So let this be it for the fall on ice.  Tomorrow I am going to tell you about a hobby!
Cheers and hugs,

Jo, Stella, and Zkhat

  6. We are so very knowledgeable here in Blogville!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  7. White Dog Howls of Happiness that you are not broken or bruised or damaged any more! Now you just need to practice painlessly sliding into 3rd base before the summer gets here! BOL!

  8. We're glad you're alright.

    The miracle of paw power is amazing. Let this be a lesson learned. Slipping with people around is embarrassing. Slipping with dog around is enlightening.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  9. Great to hear that no lasting damage was done.
    We're curious to know what the hobby will be. (Not rugby playing then!)
    Gail and Bertie.

  10. So glad that you're okay! When I fall, my dogs run over to see if I dropped any treats and they might kiss me if they find no treats on the ground next to me... So, Stella wins the devotion contest, paws down!

  11. Very glad you are recovering!! Good job Stella of watching over your Mom. Thanks for visiting us.

  12. Thank goodness you are doing better. I have checked by to see.

  13. Yay for your Mum, Stella Up Over. We're so glad she's better. A hobby? Hmmmm. Wonder what it is. Looks like we will just have to wait and see. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  14. Falling can be different for different people. You can fall softly and land well, you can go down with a bang, but get up again quickly just incase some one else has seen you kiss the ground. Hum... no fall is good or great. Lots of love this end .... X X X

    Ted's have to well over 50 years old :-) x x x

  15. Hi Stella we are just catching up, our PC is sick now.
    We are so sorry about your mum falling on the ice.
    We are glad she is okay now, the older you get the more a fall shakes you up.
    Our weather has been great lots of sun and warm.
    Licks Bobby
