A year ago today,  miss Betsy came home. After losing chuck i didn’t think it was possible to feel whole again.  I was just telling someone,  she’s everything chuck wasn’t.  Chuck was tall and lean,  bets, short and stubby. Chuck could eat and eat and not gain weight.  Bets, such a woman,  gains weight by […]

We are coming up to about a year since we found out that we were losing chuck. What a year last year was. I dont want to dwell too much on it. Ill simply say that he was the most wonderful dog I could have had. he always will be. I was so stuck in […]

Finally the weather allows us to get Betsy out on some of our adventures! Her and I both are getting a little too fluffy from our lack of activity this winter. This was one of chucks favorite spots. It’s a bit of a hike to get there, so once he got sick we couldn’t get […]

We had our first 60 degree day yesterday! I ran the shamrock shuffle, sporting my new team tripawds shirt! I was one of 45000 ppl who ran the 5 miles. It was such a great day. My husband picked me up from the train station, and for the first time since Chuck was healthy, we […]

The little boy seemed to accept Bilker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.” Startled, we all turned to him. What came […]

Last year was such a happy one. . On this day. I kept saying how it was like celebrating his 50th. Since he was 5. And saints generally till about 10. Who knew this jerk of a disease was brewing and that it would take not only him but two of his siblings over the […]

The story of two brothers: When we picked chuck up from his breeders, 3 hours away from our home, they tried to convince us that the couple from our neighborhood already picked up the dog. Well. It turned out the only two males in that litter were destined to live 5 mins from each other. […]
