In Memory

It was so difficult to say goodbye.  At 18, she lived a long, full, life.  She was the best dog and we loved her so much.  Our family is sad and our house feels a huge void without her.  We told the kids Friday afternoon, so they would have some time to process it and spend some extra time with her.  We loved on her, gave her a bath, a few extra blankets, I cooked her a large, juicy, steak.  We chose to have the vet come to our home on Saturday.  When the time came and she arrived, we gathered around Kylie as a family, prayed over her and said our […]

Day 100 | 365 Project

Tomorrow we will say goodbye. I simply cannot imagine our family without her. She was here before we even were a family. She’s 18 years old, yet it’s still so hard to let go. We just won’t be the same without her. I saved this poem some time ago because I knew someday we’d need it. Today is that day…..If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this–the last battle–can’t be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must […]

1. Ty recently turned 16.  16 y’all.  He’s so grown up now.  Pictures forthcoming….as soon as I get around to taking them!  I have to twist his arm and bribe him these days.  The teenage years y’all…..I’m a big mix of proud and panic.  His time here at home with us is going by way too fast.  3 years….I have 3 years left with him at home.  I just want to say that’s not long enough, I need more time, why does it have to go so fast?!  Hey universe, that’s not fair.  This feels like yesterday.

2.  Ty isn’t the only one who turned 16 this month….this old girl turned 16 too.  I swear she has the fountain […]

Just a quick snapshot of Jonah loving on Kylie.  Our old girl turns 16 pretty soon.  She’s been super patient with the baby.  More so than Maggie, ha!  She’s such a great dog, when she isn’t driving me crazy.  And she apparently has the fountain of youth running through her.  16?!?!

We finally got to pick up our new puppy and bring her home to stay today.  I’m pretty sure this face says it all….

Yes, excitement doesn’t even begin to describe it!  So far (knock on wood) she and Kylie are getting along fabulously.  Kylie is such an amazing dog, we’re hoping some of her pure awesomeness will rub off on her.  A few snapshots from her first afternoon home…

Me = Melt…

I did take some shots of Maggie and Taryn but Taryn wasn’t exactly dressed so I don’t want to post them.  Hopefully my […]
