In addition to sharing recipes and the random shenanigans of the men in my house, my husband and I own and operate a small business. Over the course of the past couple of weeks, we have relocated to a beautiful building less than three miles away. We may be a “small” business but there was nothing small about this move. Working 10 hour days, seven days a week, does not leave much time for cooking or blogging which explains the crickets that have been chirping around here since my last post almost two weeks ago. As the dust settles after our move and life begins to return to “normal” I’m more than ready to be back in my kitchen.
Amidst the chaos, we had to say goodbye to our sweet Heidi. She has been part of our family for 13 years and today I’d like to tell you all a little about her.
She was cute as a button when we first got her.
She loved belly rubs.
She loved soaking up the sun with her feline friend, Sasha.
She loved going on walks.
She loved the snow.
She loved opening presents; even if they weren’t for her.
She loved spending time at Grandma and Grandpa’s cabin with the boys.
But most of all she loved Bruno, and Bruno loved her.
Rest in peace sweet girl. Our house will not be the same without you.
Questions and Reviews
Sorry for the loss of your furbaby Heidi! They fill our homes with such joy! I raised my 5 children with dogs. We had one Boston/cocker mix that was the most fantastic dog that ever was…..she had the best qualities of both breeds and lived to be 18yrs old. When she was 5 we got her a Boston pup of her very own and they were best friends. As the kids grew up, left home and had their own kids, one of my little grandsons who could not have his own dog where he lived, always told everyone that he had two dogs and they lived at his Nana’s. After we lost the first dog at 18, the other soon fallowed at 13(I’m sure from a broken heart) I couldn’t stand it, as my nest was empty, so two new Bostons pups came home. My grandson soon claimed them as his, and they him even though they didn’t get to see each other often, they just had this bond. Well, he is now an adult and a month ago he called very excited and said guess what Nana, I’m getting a puppy! I said, what are you getting? A BOSTON!!!!! And the love goes on……We will all meet our furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge~~~~~~~
Thanks so much for your comment Gail. I bet a Boston/Cocker mix would be SO cute! It’s amazing how tightly dogs will bond. Losing Heidi was so hard on Bruno and we are thinking about getting another puppy at some point to keep him company. They are such an amazing breed.
Very sorry, it’s hard to say goodbye to our beautiful friends. We had to let our Pekingese, Gizmo, go a couple of years ago, it still stings. Still, we’ll keep on bringing animals into our lives because life is much richer with them.
All the best.
Oh, I’m very sorry to hear that. As a doggie mama myself, I totally understand. Hugs.
I’m so sorry to hear of your and your family’s loss, Valerie. The passing of a pet is very difficult. My heart is with you all.
Oh this just made me teary, our dogs are such a huge part of our families. I’m sure Heidi was loved so much & will be missed. My SIL has Boston’s, I just love them 🙂
I’m so sorry to hear about Heidi. 🙁 My kids and I want to have a dog but we don’t have family here to take care of the dog when we go oversea for a long time. I always dream of having a dog, but again it’s going to be so sad when we have to say good bye. Hope your family is okay at this sad time…
Moving takes so much effort – either I get older and my body doesn’t move as fast….it’s just a pain to do all the work! Hope you are finally settling down!
Thank you Nami.
I hope all goes well with your small business! 🙂
And I`m sorry for Heidi, but I`m sure she was very happy being loved by your wonderful family. 🙂
I appreciate the good wishes Lynna 🙂
Aw I’m sorry 🙁 My family has had bostons my whole life. I have said goodbye to two of them. We just got 2 new puppies because not having bostons just didn’t seem right. Sorry for your loss 🙁
It is such a special breed isn’t it? Thank you Ali.
She looks like she was a sweet, sweet girl. I am so sorry for your loss.
Thank you so much Beckie.
