Alright. When I decided I wanted to begin writing in a somewhat public way, and put effort into a blog, I talked with some close friends about what I would write. Throughout all the changes and struggles I’ve been through in the past few years, one positive constant has been my dogs.
At times, it’s bothered me that, when so many other obvious things were wrong in my life, it seemed that asking about the dogs was the only point of conversation those around me could come up with, without, I don’t know upsetting me (or so my crazy head concluded). When bloggish talk came up, more than one well-meaning person said, why don’t you blog about your dogs? And I replied with some litany of wishy washy reasons why it was too obvious, would be boring to others, commonplace in my existence, not interesting enough… But one of the few things I do know about writing that I keep coming back to is, you write what you know. And as evidenced by my to-date track record of inconsistent entries and notalltointerestinganyway topics, I realized, why the hell aren’t I writing about Grace and Levi?! Despite the fact that blogging is arguably one of the most self-indulgent activities one can do, Grace and Levi are amazing creatures who should be shared with others.
So, without further ado, meet the team!
Jenny!!!! You have Goldens! Grace looks exactly like our sweet Murphy who we lost just yesterday. The whole family, along with his “sister” Sophie were there hugging, holding, and petting him as he crossed over the “rainbow bridge”. He was only 9, too young to go. He had that puppy face just like Grace and Levi until his last breath. We miss him already…big, stinky breath, lovable Murph! Your puppies are beautiful!
