I hope you had a nice week.
I have so many things I wanted to share with you about my week. The gorgeous weather, shopping excursions, progress in the cottage. Just a little of this and that about my experiences living this new journey on the Oregon coast. And, since experiencing loss is oftentimes part of any journey, I decided to write about Earl a beloved furry child who recently passed away.
His path crossed mine for a wonderful 17 plus years, so there are many stories to share about this little guy. Stories I will continue to hold close and dear. However, I can tell you he was charming, curious, a good sport, handsome, obedient, loving, proud, hospitable, a bit laid back, funny, friendly, and a real tail wagger.
He wasn’t particularly crazy about getting groomed, picky about eating, perhaps even a bit stubborn at times…
and the most awesome friend anyone could ever have.
Any of you who have a furry child know the joy, love, and companionship they bring into our lives. They become family.
I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have shared his life.
It was a pleasure and honor to be your pet guardian Earl.
I Will hold you in my heart forever, & ever. Xo
