RIP Much-Loved Doggies

My boyfriend's family has just had to help their 15 year old fox terrier across the Rainbow Bridge. Calvin was just very old and recently developed tumors throughout his body, including several that stopped his liver from working. I got to meet him a few times, and he was a quiet little old man with a funny little kinked tail and sweet gray eyebrows.

Shortly after Calvin passed over the bridge, my best friend's childhood dog, Belle, also had to be helped to the other side. She was a very big chow / german shepherd mix, about 14 years old, who was very loved. She was pretty sick and although everyone is sad, it was her time to go.

Also recently, some relatives of mine lost their old pup as well. My cousins, aunt, and uncle were very sad to see their 17 year old terrier pass. I have very good memories of Buster as a young dog, frolicking in the fields behind their house.

Please send happy thoughts their way.

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Every year, Dobby and I go to pick out pumpkins together. Next year I will probably be moving to a new town during the summer, so we will have to find a new pumpkin patch. I was extra careful to take pictures this year so we could remember our first falls together! I got Dobby on October 13, so picking out pumpkins was one of the very first special things we ever did together. We go to a local church that fills their front lawn with pumpkins to raise money for their youth programs. (I like the idea that my pumpkin money is going to a good cause instead of a big grocery store!)

Those pumpkins are bigger than Dobby is!

These are more his size...

A happy outing!

Yesterday, I turned two of the pumpkins we got into jack-o-lanterns! I'll post pictures of those and Dobby in his Halloween outfit soon :)

Well, I still haven't gotten back into blogging as much as I'd like, but I hope that I can start posting more often soon :) For now, just a quick update! I forgot to blog about Dobby's two special days!

Dobby' birthday was September 1- he turned 4 years old! The evidence is in his increasingly gray beard :)


Dobby's gotcha-day was October 13! I've had my little buddy for 3 years now. Time flies when you're having fun. This picture is from the first time I ever met him at his foster mom's house. It was about 2 weeks before I brought him home with me.

I don't think I took any special pictures of him on his special days, but he got extra love and treats. We need to go to the pet store some time this week anyway, so he will probably get some fancy cookies!

I also look forward to posting our annual Halloween photo shoot!!! This year I even remembered to take pictures when we went to pick out pumpkins, so I'll post about that soon, too.

Much love!
Sharon and Dobby
