First, I like to mention that this is the 100th Spottyed Snuggles post. Thank you to all the readers who subscribed, commented, Liked, and shared this blog. I really didn’t have a clue of where this blog would take me when I first started and I am comforted knowing that many appreciate my sharing the love we had.
Secondly, it’s been almost six years since the passing of Miss CookiesNCream and The Bandit, which seems surrealistic to me. I have those moments of them being with me, yet the calendar tells me their crossings to the Rainbow Bridge happened in 2008. Of course, I wanted to commemorate the specific dates, but it seems that calendars and I sometimes do not quite agree or sync up at the appropriate times.
Miss Cookies was my baby. She was my Valentine’s present from the now late hubby at the age of 12 weeks old, arrived here at the end of February 1996. She is the reason and inspiration to who I am today. I couldn’t have had a better dog to introduce me to being a good pet parent.
The Bandit, adopted in 2000, was estimated to be 12-18 months old, when I decided to ‘foster’ him. Let’s just say that I am/was a foster failure. He had his issues but through love , patience, consistency, with a little guidance by Miss Cookies, those issues were not as severe as when he first came here. In 2002, when my hubby passed, he did lots of silly things that got me laughing and being active with them. He kept me from falling into a deep depression.
It is with gratitude that I dedicate this post to my beloved Spotts. I am a better person having had them in my life and will always cherish the memories we had together.
Happy (almost) Wordless Wednesday to you. Woof!
