Rest In Peace Pablo

It’s with great sorrow that José, Lucky and I bade farewell to our dearest Pablo on 31 January morning. He would have been 12 on 18 February. We know that he led a full and happy life and for that we are grateful. Rest in peace Pablo, our sweet boy!

Rest In Peace Pablo

As much as we know that he is beyond suffering now, we cannot but be sad at his passing. He was such an integral part of our daily lives. As José said, there’s a hole in our lives! Yes, there’s a Pablo-shaped hole in our lives and one that can never be filled. We’ll eventually stop grieving as we are now, but we’ll never stop remembering and loving him.

I have so much to write about this special dog, but I can’t see the screen for my tears. In the coming days, I’ll be writing about him and using this space to create something positive to honour the memory of our lovely boy!

Rest in peace, champ! And thank you for everything you were to us. ♥

For Boxer Lovers

Today I defy you not to ………..SMILE!

Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure that there are no smiles available ~ Jim Beggs

I defy all Boxer owners not to smile at this one:
When dogs are happy they wag their tails…
When Boxers are happy they wag the back half of their body…
When dogs are happy to see you they jump up to greet you…
When Boxers are happy to see you they run nine hundred miles an hour around the living room…
When dogs are bored they want to play fetch for twenty minutes…
When Boxers are bored they bring you every toy in the house over and over for the next two hours…
When dogs get tired they sleep in their bed as quiet as a mouse…
When Boxers get tired they sleep on you chest snoring in your ear…
When dogs beg for food they put a paw on your knee…
When boxers beg for food they silently make two large slobber bubbles from the sides of their mouth…
Therefore, boxers are not dogs. They are wiggling, burning, toy carrying, snoring, slobber bubble making machines

Backing Up To Day One

pablo-1

Corinne insists that I should share with you a picture of me on Day One – the day I was  brought to her parents’ home – almost 8 years ago.

I was such an excited, scared (although I didn’t show it) and tired little puppy that I fell right asleep in her arms!

I still love to cuddle but I’m a little too big to be held this way!
Love and licks!
