Hello out there my long lost friends. It's been a while since I posted on my blog... I guess I should explain.
Just before I stopped blogging you will see I posted about finding that little dog Daisy. Well, little Daisy soon found her way into our hearts but I was reluctant to take on a fourth dog when Duke's health was going downhill. The day I decided to make it official, we went out to buy Daisy a little dog bed. Duke must have had a stroke while we were out. When we came home- the Duke we knew was gone, he was alive, but erased. It was a sad irony how I struggled so hard to open my heart to Daisy out of concern for Duke... and then, when I did take that step to make Daisy ours, Duke gave up his spot by the stove for her.
At the time I could not bear to write a blog entry about Duke. ...and as other things came along, stories from Great and Small Farm, happy, sad, interesting, creative... I could not bring myself to leapfrog the new entry past the unwritten memorial for old Duke and somehow a year and a half has passed.
I promise to soon write that post, and then all the ones in between and try to get this blog current again. I have missed this.
