I know it has been a while. I had to take some time off. Some “me” time. Time to figure out who I really was and what makes me tick.
Thing is, I lost one of my besties. Yeah. Bridger lost his battle with cancer. I know you know how I feel. I am sure you, too, have lost a bestie of your own at some point. You wonder what happened; you wonder if you were a good friend.
I think I was a good friend. Sure he didn’t like me much (how could he not love my adorable face?). And when he would give me that deep growl, I know it was him telling me how much he cared for me. And there were those times I would try to steal his toys out from under him. But who doesn’t? A dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do, right? I know he loved me deep down (really deep maybe).
So I took some time for myself, to rethink my life. And what did I come up with? Well…
More of mom’s treats for one. Peanut butter Rollover & Beg Bites, please! And more walks in the woods – lots of them and long ones.And more time with my other bestie Quinn. And maybe a sleepover or two with Nevaeh and Jarvis. And squirrels…lots of chasing squirrels and chippies. Can’t have ’em coming into the yard and wrecking havoc!
Yep. Simple yet complex. Do more of what I love. And spend more time with those I love. And more time in front of the fireplace when it gets cold.
Good-bye Bridger. I am gonna miss you! Gotta run…
