Not a good year for the dogs here

No one else is dead. I thought I would get that out of the way to start with. Julie's dog, Roxi, had a litter of 16 pups, who all died of parvo.


I ran over Buddy, who died.

George is gone. He is not dead but he is gone. He and Holly could not come to terms. She got more and more jealous as he got more and more comfortable. She was here second and did not ask for any other dog to ever share her space. She shares her space with Duck because she has no choice. It is Duck's space.


She kept sniping at George and, for the longest time, he did not respond in kind. Then the day came when he did. Not very fiercely and not for very long, but it became more and more common. I did not want George to lose his lovely disposition and no amount of anything on my part was changing Holly's mind. So George went to live elsewhere.


So now, there are two. Actually, there are six if you count Julie's four. She still has Roxi and Bo and Bug and her new addition is Lexi - I guess to replace the pups who died - or maybe even to help fill the Alex space.


I will leave you with a couple of pictures of Buddy's last day on earth. It was a good one.

Too bad about George, but it's nice to know Buddy's last day was a good one, well that is apart from the whole getting killed and all.

PS. He really was a great looking dog.

And what a grand last day! They say everything comes in 3's- praying everything is shinier and happier now!

Buddy does look happy and this is the way to remember him. Sad for George but I'm sure you made the right decision given the circumstances.

Let's hope things go better for the rest of the year.

My 2007 wasn't very good but this year has been better for me.

I'm sure it was a very, very difficult decision to make, but probably is best for all involved. I'm sure it still broke your heart though.

You never want to love something so much again after it hurts so bad ~~
