“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

RIP Miss Holly
Nathan and his dawg .. Miss Holly
How can I not write about the passing of my beloved pooch, Miss Holly .. aka the 'dawg' .. she passed peacefully last night. It's amazing how attached we can get to our pets. She arrived eleven Christmases ago and was the second golden retriever that possessed our hearts. If only I knew this night was her last I would have given her an extra hug or treat. She was the best companion for our son Nathan. They were inseparable and she gave him such love. How do I tell him when he wakes up?? He has Down syndrome and I don't think he understands about death. It's going to be a sad day at the Thrifty Garden Home.
