A random poll for my daughter Cynthia Vivian 🙂
‘No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.’
I haven’t updated the blog in over a month, the same goes for Mr B’s FB page. I’m ok, I think about him every day, I doubt that’s something that will ever stop.
Teddy was most affected. He spends almost every afternoon napping on B’s futon spot; I refuse to wash the blanket. Every time Dan comes home Teddy runs to the door, I truly believe he’s looking for B…when that doesn’t happen he just walks away.
To keep busy-and sane-I got back into fish keeping. I was really into the hobby years ago then gave it up when we were forced to move. So if you’re a follower of my blog or a regular visitor be prepared for freshwater aquarium posts and photos 🙂
Three of our blog friends lost elderbulls this week. Rescues. Deeply loved.
To Sarge, Gertie and Mr. B – you were loved. Your life was made better by the humans that were there with you at your end. Awesome humans who knew time would be short, but were committed to making every moment sweet. Their goal every day, to rain joy down upon you. Mission accomplished. Now they take on the job of grieving. With great love comes deep grief. But it’s always worth it. Our thoughts and prayers are with your humans. Our heroes.
Run free sweet, loved, elderbulls. I am a better person for having heard about you.
Last month I got this awesome box for my birthday from my oldest son: a Willow Pocket Pittie plus a bonus adopt collar bracelet from CharlieDog & Friends. CharlieDog tells positive stories of adoption thru the sale of their stuffed animals and bracelets and a portion of each sale goes to a rescue shelter!
Bandanas are a nice way to give your dog some flair or celebrate a holiday without spending a fortune. There’s a huge variety available, they machine wash & dry nicely, and don’t take up much space for storage. I prefer standard squares or triangles over those that slip on over the dog’s collar.
I recently added Happy Birthday, St Patrick’s Day, Easter/spring, and two paw print triangle bandanas to our collection. They are all excellent quality, reasonably priced and purchased from these two sites:
