It's getting closer and closer to my favorite holiday, and there is a great sadness in my heart. My brother and I were the biggest kids when it came to Christmas we were always on cloud 9, silly I know but it's what it was.
To loose him so suddenly and unexpectedly was a shock I'll never get over, as if that wasn't bad enough I had to loose my beloved companion Angus too. It just about killed me . . . I know you hear those that say "he's just a dog" no he was 142 pounds of pure love and joy!!! He also left me with no warning.
They say the 2012 will be the end of the world, well I don't believe that but I do know the a piece of my world did end this year.
There is a new fur-ball in our lives to help ease the sadness, a rescue dog, because it was the right thing to do. He's coming out of his shell and adjusting to his new life with us, and yes, he's worming his way into my heart. He can be such a clown. He's a good boy that needed a good home when I need a new shadow - companion - friend all of the above!
Here we are at Hopatcong State Park, my usual park is closed for bow hunting. I think it was the first time his paws ever set foot on sand, he had fun exploring . . . and then a good nap in "my" chair while I was on the computer.
Thanks for sharing with me, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. Be sure to tell those that you love just how much they mean to you, because, well just because!!!
