punctuated by a few brighter moments… last night I went to our monthly Salt Bay Treadlers meeting and we had a great time. We had a lot of wonderful food and a lot of laughs. Pam of Hatchtown Farm brought along her bottle lamb (because she has a cast on her leg) so we had some alternative entertainment as well. I needed a good laugh and we had a multitude of them. I wish that I had remembered to have my camera along as we also had plenty of photo ops!
Tuesday evening John, JD and I spent hours on the floor in the kitchen with Bear the Lab, talking to her as she let go. She was wagging and alert to the last. Bear now has a place of honor in our Rugosa patch, right outside the dining room windows on the SW side of the house. We miss her terribly, but 13 years is a good life and we enjoyed it all with her. I can’t really put into words how much a dog like Bear can enrich life so well. We will miss her something awful.
