All kinds of Puppy Love...

This has been a difficult week for our family, as we lost one of our sweet Labs, Gracie on November 20, to a terrible and sudden illness. She was not quite 5 years old. I posted about it briefly on Facebook but couldn't get myself to write about it here on the blog... it was too difficult knowing that I had, just a few days before her passing posted on the blog about her and my other Lab, Marley right here.

Instead I have been working on a layout of Grace as a tribute to her (which I can't post as it is a gift for my middle daughter Caitlin - Gracie was her dog).  We have found this week that even still with a household of (four) dogs and (seven) cats to keep our hearts and minds busy... there still remains and shall always be a huge hole without our Gracie May here, she is so loved and will be always missed.

But there is someone who has been very busy trying to keep us smiling...  (I wrote about when we got her and how she was rescued by my middle daughter Caitlin right here.)

All of Remi's injuries have healed now from whatever life she was living before she arrived here with us several weeks ago and we are getting to know her with each passing day... I am thankful that she is helping us all... especially my daughter Caitlin, to get through this difficult time as we adjust to life without Gracie.

While no dog will ever replace the love we have for our Gracie May... having all kinds of puppy love to share certainly helps ease the loss when you get hugs and kisses like this...




I wish that I had not been so slow on the "draw" snapping these photos as I missed the big SLURRRRRP Remi gave Caitlin's face...


but I did capture the aftermath... :-) Doesn't Remi look smug?!

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

So sad to hear about your lab, Gracie.Hugs for you. We lost one of our Bassets the week before Thanksgiving two years ago and then another the same year the day after Xmas. Fortunately, our work with Basset rescue brought us a unique case almost immediately and it helped us heal. I hope that adorable Remi helps your daughter get through. The scrapbook page will be so therapeutic for you too. I did the same thing and got the whole family involved. The each wrote down what they would miss on a tag that I created a hidden pocket for so their thoughts were private. (hugs) to you! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

So sorry for your loss Beth. My sis lost one of her fur babies a couple of weeks ago. Remi is adorable:)

such a difficult thing to endure! We have 3 inside dogs and 2 outside. We love them to pieces and hate the thoughts of giving any of them up! My thoughts are with you and yours. Looks like the the baby is fitting right in! Things have a way of working out!

I thought I had cried all the tears that I could for Gracie but reading this makes more come. I loved her even though I only spent 1 week with her. But that one week was enough to make me try to figure out how to get her in my suitcase and fly her back here with me. I will miss seeing her when I get back there, but I am also very excited to meet Remi. You guys are always in my thoughts and prayers.
