Has anyone heard from Souraya? I know she was going to go home and visit family, but I haven't seen anything from her since....I'm not sure when - a long time. Hope everything is ok.

07-15-2004, 12:44 PM
I miss her too!!! i hope she will check in soon with an update from she and Drake.

07-15-2004, 12:51 PM
I do remember her saying she may not be able to update us from Lebanon, so maybe that's why. I hope she's alright. I miss her too!

07-15-2004, 12:52 PM
Me three! :)

We miss you Souraya!

07-15-2004, 12:53 PM
I hope she's alright, too. Maybe she'll be back soon to let us know.

07-15-2004, 05:32 PM
I know I've been missing her too.

Update when you can Souraya!

07-15-2004, 06:06 PM
Yes!! We would love to hear how you are doing ...

07-15-2004, 06:44 PM
I think of Souraya often, and Andrew too.:( I hope they
and handsome Drake are doing well.:) Maybe we'll all get
lucky and get an update from Souraya soon.

07-15-2004, 08:17 PM
Add me to the list!

07-15-2004, 08:21 PM
Yup, me, too. But I know it can be hard to find Internet access when you're traveling, and when you visit family, sometimes the rest of life is momentarily further from your mind.

Be safe, Andrew, Souraya and Drake, until we hear from you again.

I think Andrew is in Iraq until at least the middle of August so perhaps Souraya is staying with her family until he is home.

I've been wondering about them too....hope they're all alright.

07-16-2004, 10:25 AM
Souraya, are your ears burning yet? I look at my Drake pictures every day and brag about him as if he were my own ;) I think of Andrew every time I hear the news and say a little prayer for you all.

07-16-2004, 10:48 AM
I too add my wondering . I know she was having a hard time away from home and Andrew being gone too. Hope your better !

07-16-2004, 02:07 PM
I also think it was mid August when Andrew should come back. I hope Souraya, you have the best time ever with your family until then.

07-16-2004, 02:14 PM
Souraya, Andrew, and Drake - the cutest family ever - are always in my prayers. We miss you Souraya!

Hi there!

Well, we are back! Drake and I had a great summer in the Middle East where Drake swam in the Med and hiked in Lebanon and Syria. He also got to see ancient Pheonecian, Bezantian, and Roman ruins. Drake made many new human friends there and everyone was sad to see him go. My parents got so used to have a pooch around, that my Mom finally got her own pup. A 4 month old Bichon she named Ripley!

Our 3 months in Lebanon went by very quickly. It was great to see all my family and friends and spent most of the days by the beach. It was a good way to pass the time while Andrew was gone.

Andrew is home safe now. We all got back about a week ago. It is good to be together again after a long time.

Drake, Andrew, and I will be going on vacation for 3 weeks to south of Spain. We plan on having a blast! Thanks for thinking of us. We have missed Pet Talk!

OH THANK YOU THANK YOU AND THANKS TO THE BIG GUY ABOVE FOR BRINGING ANDREW HOME SAFELY You all can only imagine the love and worry we have been feeling. There are so many young men still there but you, Andrew and dear Drake have such a special place in our hearts. Smile, laugh, love, kiss and THEN, try to send pictures DrakeDrakeDrake :D

08-21-2004, 11:22 AM
Souraya, thank you for the update! We have really missed you. I am glad that Andrew is home safely.

Welcome back, Souraya!
It's wonderful to read that Andrew is home safe and that you had such a great time visiting with your family. Now Drake is not only one of the most beautiful dogs in the world, but also the best educated one after visiting so many ancient sites.;)
Have a great time in Spain.
