Ginger, I'm just now seeing the sad news about Hot Shot. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know he will leave a big space in your heart. I hope it brings you some comfort to imagine him being reunited with his dog-siblings so they can all watch over you together. I'm glad you have Garth to bring you some smiles.
Glenda, I hope things are okay with your Mom and that if she can't recover that her passing is as peaceful and gentle as possible. As you said, you don't want a loved one to die in pain or feeling lots of anxiety, fear or confusion. Something we've said often about my MIL --- her dementia is severe, but she seems to be without any pain or anxiety. She can't remember one minute to the next, and she comes out with some crazy comments, but doesn't seem to be AWARE that she's not remembering things or that she says weird things. We're hoping since she sleeps nearly 24/7 that she'll just pass peacefully in her sleep.
I haven't checked in all month - it's been very busy. My mother was visiting for about 2 weeks, which was fun (lots of eating, some shopping, a couple winery trips, relaxing on the patio). Ruby was in heaven because my mother gives her treats every 30 seconds! I told Ruby we are all on a diet now that she has gone home! Still trying to catch up after several days off from work -- the drawback of vacation time is that no one does my tasks in my absence. :-(
Kate, I bet your Halloween pups will look great in their holiday photo! I need to go look up the article so I can see the famous pair of Doug and Sky!
