3 Months Today

It has been 3 months since we lost our sweet Aussie Duke. I didn't even realize it as I planted some daylilies around his grave today. Its just like I knew I should do it today. Then little Jimmy helped me pick up a bunch of small rocks to make a border around the grave area which I am making into a small flower bed (I will have to post a pic later as it didn't even occur to me to take one until it was too dark). It is in the middle of a pasture so we are going to have to fence it, but I am making sure to use "horse safe" plants. We are also going to add a bench and plant a memorial tree. It looks over the creek so it will be a nice relaxing sitting area. Oh Duke, we miss you so much!

On a brighter note, sweet little Bo is growing so fast and is so rambunctious! He is learning so well and doing great with his clicker training. He can already sit, lay down, shake, get in his "bed" (crate), stay for a short bit, and he almost has roll over - which is a big deal because Duke would NEVER roll over, not even to get his belly scratched! Bo on the other hand just loves to have his belly rubbed, he is such a roly poly little guy.

Ooo, and there are plans for a little furry playmate for him in the near future (a Christmas present perhaps??) I will keep ya posted ;-)

I hope you all are doing well, I am sorry I have been a horrible blogging friend lately. I am working on making my rounds to visit everyone, I miss you all & hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

oh Ali..I cannot believe it has been 3 months...

I am so glad you have Bo, it makes it slightly easier. But we have found.. those special dogs are truly irreplaceable..the new dog is a new chapter, all his own.

Ali, I have been thinking of you and hope to talk soon. That sounds great about another dog. Will you get a female? Blessings my friend, Audrey
