Ike's mom here: I'm helping Ike compile his 62! entries for the photo contest, and I noticed that his adoption day countdown ticker is down to just over 2 days. What that means to me is that I missed the anniversary of Meg's death three years ago. While I feel really guilty about this, I am comforted by the fact that I have an artist in NY designing a tattoo of Meg that I am going to have done this summer (thank you Chase Bank for not raising my rates yet so I can make one more big frivolous purchase!) I might have forgotten the exact day of her death, but I will remember her for the rest of my life every time I look at my leg.
I also get to celebrate another wonderful year with Ike (even though he peed on the floor for no reason yesterday - he's in one of his phases, anyone else have bad pee puppy phases?) It's amazing how far he's come in these three years! But more on that on his actual adoption anniversary.
So here are a couple of pictures of Meg who died after just a year and a half with us. She was only 6 and had a brain tumor. She was a very serious Boston terrier and would have had a quite sardonic blog. My sweet Meggo, I will always miss you.
As you can see, Odin is not choosy about the dogs he loves.
The 62 entries and the top 5 will be up tonight!
Oh, and my dad did the annual dog show on his radio show last night. Click on Variations on a Theme at the bottom of the page to listen!
