I've been gone from blog-land for good reason. Just before Halloween, we became one of the thousands of households left without power as a result of the Snowtober snowstorm. Luckily for us, a very kind and dear friend took us in -- including our two dogs! We were away for almost a week and there wasn't much time to think, let alone blog.
We were all settled in again by end of day Friday, which was just in time for our older Lab, Goblin. He had started to feel a bit poorly while we were away but, by the time we were back home again, he felt it was safe to begin his goodbyes. We learned about his diagnosis at the start of September and today, he succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was a great dog and we were lucky and honored to have him. Here are a few memories:
|Even though he was very manly, Goblin loved his squeaky stuffed animals|
|He also loved a good belly rub|
|He could never resist hanging by the fire, even long, long ago|
|He hated looking at the camera as he got older.... I never could figure out why.|
|I think he looked regal, even when he was wearing The Cone of Shame|
|And, he was a great, loving, and patient "big brother" to Bella|
Good bye, sweet dog. We love you.
