Beehive Book Haul and News #43

Happy weekend :) 

A few updates...
- I have been feeling sicky all week and really tired. I tried to keep up with correspondence but have failed, so sorry! I will be taking next week off from blogging and most things related to blogging to relax, get my energy back and catch up :) 
- Miley Rose is doing SO much better! She's almost to her old self again! Her surtures were removed this past Wednesday and her scar is looks wonderful, better than what I've seen on people, lol! She still needs to be monitored with activities such as no running and no rough play. But she's back to her old diet and moving around freely, a much happier pup :)
Thank you all who have asked about her!
