Happy Thanksgiving

Today I am thankful to my family and friends for the love, comfort and fun they bring to my life. And I'm also thankful for the canine company in my life. I took them for a walk this morning to the Delmar Loop. Here they are, taking a break on the walk back home.

Happy Thanksgiving

Introducing Sara

Yesterday I adopted a new dog! Her name is Sara and she's from the St. Louis Senior Dog Project. She's 9-10 years old and had lived at the end of a chain on a small rural farm in North Carolina for most of her life. Her story is documented on the St. Louis Senior Dog Project blog here, here and here.

So far, Sara is doing great! She seems very happy and I love having her. Read more here.

My sweet beagle Dawson died earlier tonight. He took a turn for the worse this afternoon. My friend Cherry and I had been managing his condition very carefully, given his back problem and his cancer. For weeks now, our focus had been on him being happy and not in pain. There were a number of ups and downs during this process, but we did pretty good. For example, just the other day, Dawson was digging a hole in the backyard, burying a bone! Today, however, he took a turn for the worse. It was time to help him out and to let him go.

I miss him terribly.

Please don't take my Polaroid away
