Thank you

I got a job!

Thanks for all your good wishes, encouragement, hanging in there with me, and being there in blog land and real life.

Yay oh yay. I'm going to be looking up some dog shows and agility trials to enter.


hug your hounds and any nurses you know and hug yourselves for me!

image from google images HERE but I messed with it. I tried superimposing my face but it was spooky freaky.


  1. Woot congrats that's great news!!!

  2. Doing the happy dance for you, right here in my chair ---

  3. Tell us more, tell us more!!!

    Happy terrier dance to celebrate!!!

  4. Woo-hoo! Congratulations! There was never any doubt. But I hope this doesn't mean you'll be writing less.

  5. Woohooo! That is good news, I know. I hope you will still find time for blogging!! And writing your wonderful stories!!

  6. Congratulations, Patience.
    I'm so happy for you.

  7. CONGRATS!!!!! and I hope no nights!!! Got a chuckle from the photo and went to the site and chuckled even more!!!!! Write if you need moral support!! Love PL2 and A+A

  8. Yay! I've just booked in a visit with my favourite nurse (another 4 weeks to wait, though, but I promise to hug her several times!)


  9. I have a friend who has one of her dogs specifically trained for agility competitions. It takes a lot of time though - hope you're up for that...

  10. Thank you, we needed a smile today.

  11. Congratulations, Patience! We are thrilled for you!

    Love ya lots

  12. Congratulations Patience! Hope that you got great shift hours. We are doing our happy skippity dance for you.

  13. Terrific News! Congratulations!

    But poor advice. I now know a lot of nurses, not all of whom are open to hugging. Not all of whom I'm open to hugging.

    Could I, you know, just kind of hug them vicariously. In the privacy of my mind. And still be happy at your success?


    For me?

  14. Oh Barry, you made me laugh so hard!

    Thank you all. You know, for the main blog part, I said how wonderful it will be to show the dogs again, and oh yes it WILL be.

    But, it will also be good, good, good to be entrusted with patient care again. A priviledge, which I've missed.

    Thank you all again :-) woo-hooooooo!

  15. I didn't know you were a nurse. I am a retire RN. I so wish I could still work. Congratulations you got a job. I want to hear all about it. I spent my last 15 years in Home Health, 5 in an office position.

    Congratulations on the new job, hope the hours are conducive to attending lots of dog shows & spending time training for agility.

  17. There are some lucky future patients out there! Be safe, Patience, and congratulations!!

  18. hooray!! i am so happy for you, congratulations!! looking forward to hearing about your agility trials.

  19. YAYYYYY! :-)

    I am SO enjoying your book - almost done with it already! I told you I loved The River story - and on twitter I said you should work it up to submit somewhere - it's lovely.

    Also, the story of your lab - My Kayla had a tumor, cancer on the spleen - but we didn't find it in time to remove it before it was too late - lost her last summer...there's a story about apples and an apple tree I must tell that still has me wondering about the power of ...of things we can't explain.

    There were some other things I wanted to mark to comment on, but now I can't think of them *laugh*

  20. From one nurse to another, Congratulations!! I'm still on CHF, but moving forward. And where will you be, pray tell?

  21. I think I had ALL the Cherry Ames (at least I THINK that was her name!I will offically be "older than dirt" Sunday!) when I was (much) younger. Congrats..but we all knew it was only a matter of time,dear P.

  22. We thought you'd gotten a job when we saw that you'd been uniform shopping! Congratulations!

    Soon you'll be showing those dogs again. In all your spare time! (Yeah right!)

    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  23. Woo hoo!!! Congratulations!!
