It's hard to explain where you've been when you've been gone for so long.
We lost our sweet girl Daisy in November. Just a few days before Thanksgiving.
She was old and had arthritis and joint pain (sidebar: Cosequin works like MAGIC for that in older dogs. After a month on it, she was running again.) and the pool was good for her. She lost a few pounds after a summer of swimming!
It's hard to look at these photos without feeling incredibly sad. I can't believe she's no longer here although obviously..she hasn't been here since November. I take solace in the fact that she had a very good life and was healthy until the last few months. I'm also SO glad I stayed off of the computer for the summer and LIVED life with her. She had lots of walks, swimming and she loved smelling flowers in the yard.
So...this is where I've been. I don't want to be a bummer, but I want to honor her life. She was here. She mattered. She is still loved. And she's so very missed.
Carob cookies (dog kind. Found at Petco)
Vanilla sandwich cookies (dog kind.)
Adhering to schedules
Commercials with doorbells (she'd freak out)
Most people. It seemed everyone was a stranger to her!
The word "Oof"
Rest in Peace and Love, Sweet Girl.
