After a very short battle with cancer we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy Guiness.
It was a devastaing decsion for our whole family.
My girls were little when we adopted him and he was very special to Siobhan who always had a bed buddy even after she moved out and only spent occasional nights here.
I am grateful they were all here for Father's day so each got to say their own special good byes.
Uh oh I am going to start crying again!
Good Bye sweet boy we will miss your sweet funny face
Guiness is still being lethargic and slept under our bed all night.
This morning I tried coaxing him with a wee bit of salmon.
He seemed interested but didn't have any.
If he doesn't improve today I will take him back to Dr Hall.
I worry more about the fact that he isn't drinking!
Sad Sad news .
My sister's best friend Karen lost her son of 19 after a two year battle with cancer.
I can't even imagine what she is going through.
Losing a child has got to be one of the most debillatating things that could happen to one.
It makes me reflect on the last five years on the number of family and friends we have lost to the horrific thing.
I feel very thankful and blessed that Iain was diagnosed early enough and was able to fight!
I was only away for oneweek!!!! Amazing what can happen.
Went to the Garden Centre and what did I see
Lots and Lots of herbs and annuals
That came home with me
About to Burst Peonies
Potential veggy patch
Poppies and Iris and Lupines --- O my!
White Bleeding Heart
An early Peony
So I am back for 3 days now and I have been a whirlwind trying to get caught up on everything -- house, cats, laundry, garden and my volunteer stuff!
I am hoping to spend the weekend in the garden but now I hear rain is in the forecast ALL weekend. You know what I have a snazzy pair of leopard wellys that may get a work out. I am determined to get gardens in and plants transferred.
Today I am distributing flyers to various businesses in town to promote our local Art at the Station!
I am hoping it doesn't take too long this morning to do. I have lots of planters I would like to plant up.
I am taking my camera with me to take some shots of our fab town.
