A Year of Losses and Gains

I can't believe we are now more then halfway through 2015.   Time sure seems to move faster the older you get.  This has been an eventful year for us, with losses and gains.  This weekend we were thinking of Norbert who passed in January.  We didn't know his exact birthdate but we always celebrated it in the Fourth of July.  This year he would have been 13

Tubby who passed in April

And Norbert both loved summer.  

 We were blessed to have many happy years together.  Now we are blessed to have Fry and Tuvok.  When I see my current pack happily playing together 

I'm filled with so much joy and hope for many happy years together.  Spot was a lovely surprise and when I see him and Fry playing together 

I'm reminded of when our nearly 16 year old cat Baby was young and chased Tubby all over our apartment.  Now she watches from the couch 

Fry, Tuvok, and Spot are enjoying their first summer 

I hope they have  many more happy ones.

  3. I wish I had your talent for photography, your pictures are precious. So many happy furry babies.

  4. It's lovely to see photos of your angels Norbert and Tubby. They had a wonderful life with you. And I love seeing your fur babies play and have fun together. They are so precious xoxo

  5. Wonderful post. I had a really hard time writing Lola's post for the 4th.... which would have been her 13th birthday.

  6. Yes we too hope for many happy years together for your current pack, while also remembering those that have moved on.
    All the best,
    Bertie and Gail.

  7. They really do all look so happy together. We can never predict the future, so have to just celebrate and rejoice in the present!

  8. All your dogs and cats have such a happy life with you. Glad your new babies fit in so well with the family.

  9. You give them all such a happy home! Hope you are enjoying your summer too!

  10. We honor the ones that have gone before by sharing our love with new furkids. Love seeing your gang enjoying their wonderful life with you

  11. We lots of fond memories of our past furkids. The current pups always bring back memories of them. We hope you have a long time with them, too.

  12. it is so hard to lose our loved ones, but it brings so much joy when you are able to give a wonderful home to some new little babies. I love seeing all your new additions, and I can't wait to hear more about Tuvok! I think we're years away from any new additions, so I have to live my poodle love vicariously through your blog.

  13. It's good to be able to look forward, while remembering those we've loved who are gone. Lovely post.

  14. That is so incredibly true! It's almost unnerving how quickly this year is rolling past and how fast in general time goes as you get older. I guess the one silver lining is that it feels like you wait less time between your favourites holidays and other special occasions. :)

    Big hugs & tons of happy wishes for this new week,

  15. You gave all of your furrys the best home ever. And I am sure they felt your love!

  16. The year sure is flying by! I miss Norbert and Tubby, too. It's nice that you are able to think fondly of them and the wonderful times you had together with each other. It's so nice to see the new guys all fitting in well with your pack, too! I'm sure you have many wonderful times ahead!


  17. What a wonderful post! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and lovely pictures. stella rose

  18. Time flyes ...and know what you mean by losses we had the same .. and everytime it hurds a lot...

  19. Such a bittersweet post! I'm still so sad over your loss of Norbert and Tubby this year and still just so so sad over the loss of my Murkurie. Time just goes by too quickly. It is so nice to see that you have been able to open your home, your heart, and life to new friends and family members. It is great to see how well loved your dogs and cats are and to see what a wonderful life they have!

  20. It's been a year filled with sad things for you, but so many happy ones as well. I hope the rest of this year is only filled with the happy.
