Ruff Ending to 2012!

Mr. Brody
Look at this guy!  Happy-Go-Lucky all the time.  Smart, attentive and obedient - the perfect dog.  His name was Brody and he meant the world to me!  A couple summers ago I took a bunch of pictures of him.  My intention was to learn how to draw and create a pencil sketch of him.  Easier said than done!  I didn't realize at the time just how important these pictures would become - isn't that always the way?  I remember the moment clearly.  I wanted pictures.  He didn't want to have his picture taken!
May you rest in peace Buddy!
Brody got sick during the night of December 27th and passed away on the 28th.  No intervention could have saved him.  We don't know exactly happened but he likely had liver failure.  It happened so devastatingly fast.  Such an absolute waste of a beautiful animal in the prime of his life.

One must always look for the good in a bad situation.  I've discovered that it's very important to LIVE IN THE MOMENT.  That's what I keep telling myself anyways!

Yes, he wanted to eat the cat but he did indeed know better!


Napping in the sun with his best friend, Gracie!  What a team!
Brody & Gracie - my all-time favorite picture of them.
Our other dog, Gracie is a little lost right now missing her buddy as much as me!  She's finding her new place in our lives.  It'll all work out as we move forward.

Thanks for the joining the 'pity party' today and Namaste!
