Sci Fi Saturday (A Day Early))-Remembering

I'm not the sort of person who scrap books or saves momentos and photos. I started blogging six years ago because I wanted to create a record of memories that I could visit any time.  I figured, that for me at least, a photo saved on the Internet was safer from loss  then one languishing in a drawer.  

Recently circumstances colluded so as to make me look back a year ago.   It happened because I got a notice from the library  that a book I had placed a hold on a year ago had finally came in. 


I Am Spock by Leonard Nimoy.  I requested it a year ago after he died but so many other readers had the same idea that it took me a year to make it to the top of the list .  After I picked up the book I remembered my pug Spock tribute from last year. 



Such cuteness and there is my darling Tubby on the left.  This was taken about 7 weeks before he passed.  At the time he was feeling good and in apparently great shape for a nearly 14 year old pug.  I'm so greatfull for this memory, particularly because I love seeing him next to little Fry, they had such a short time together.  It's so important to treasure these times. As Nimoy said in his final message to his fans

  6. That was one of my main reasons for starting my Sheltie Blog. I love being able to go back and see the pictures, read the stories, etc. It has been a great way to document what has happened in their lives.

  8. Such a sweet post! I'm glad that you were able to come across this memory of your dear Tubby. Through my blog I have also come across past posts and memories of precious moments with my sweet girl Murkurie. It is so sweet to have these remembrances.
