Weekend Jade

How rare is snow here in SC?  Rare enough that even a dusting makes everything seem strange.

It looks like a tennis ball but it has alien white flakes on it.

Schroeder:  It looks like a tennis ball but it has alien white flakes on it.
Jade: What should we do?

Schroeder:  I'm going for it. Jade:  I've got your back.

Schroeder: I’m going for it.
Jade: I’ve got your back.

Pardon me sir, would you care to take a survey?

Got the ball AND got your nose.

And in case anyone was wondering how things turned out:

It's all good.

Be Seeing You, Randi

Randi was my longest lived Flatcoat.  She remained very active and healthy until just recently and I am thankful for that.  Yesterday, we had to make the singularly difficult decision to euthanize our beloved pet.  The emergency clinic placed her in a cardboard coffin for us to take home.  As always, we allow the other dogs to see the body of the dog who has died as it seems to help give them closure.  They have all been very anxious since Randi took a downward turn last week and we wanted them to know she is now at peace.  Our dogs typically spend a few moments sniffing the body of their friend then move along – except Patty.  She has stayed at the graveside of every dog who has died, keeping vigil until they are completely buried and we all go back inside. Watching Patty grieve for those who have passed helps me with my own grief.  Pets are family.
