One Year

Today marks the one year anniversary of the day I said goodbye to  one the canine loves of my life, Norbert.   I was very lucky to share 12 and a half years with my boy and we where both blessed that the end was quick and relatively painless.  As someone who struggles terribly with decision making in retrospect I think its a good thing that there where really no decisions to be made, Norbert's nasal cancer was insanely aggressive taking him in only a few days time.   






Norbert's dad and I try to honor his memory by giving our current dogs the best life we can and enjoying them ever day.  Norbert was a very cuddly dog, and his successor Fry is perhaps even cuddlier.  I like to think theres a little bit of Norbert in Fry.

  2. I wish dogs lived as long as parrots and whales, but we can just enjoy the wonderful few years we have.

  4. Norbert will always be in your heart, that's just how it should be and maybe, when it doesn't hurt to do it, you could do a post telling newbies like me all about him, I would luffs to nose. Big hugs to you

  5. Norbert looks like Ruby's kinda guy. Hopefully they are romping and sunning at the Bridge...

  7. A year. Doesn't seem possible. We think your idea of making all the pups' lives the best is a wonderful attitude.

  9. Oh, I think one year anniversaries are hard. Big hugs. It's nice to see some of your angel pup in your new pup. We see Rita "channeling" Abby every now and then.

    Glad you had such a wonderful life together. I agree, the best way to honor his memory is to give the best life to your current dogs. And I do think there is a bit of Norbert in Fry xoxo

  12. It's horrible to lose a part of your family so quickly, it happened with my cat Norman in October and it was heartbreaking. Big hugs on a tough, but hopefully a happy memories day. xx
