I just wanted to announce to Bu's friends that he crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, August 13th. His mobility was getting worse and we were having issues with incontinence... I didn't mind and cleaned up after him even though he was making my house smell! However, I came home on Friday to find that he'd urinated on the floor and had laid there long enough for it to dry into his fur and be all matted. That had been the sign I kept saying would be when I'd know. It was very hard to do...Bu had lots of spunk and life left in him, but I couldn't have him being miserable and not able to get up when he needed. We are now a 1 dog household. Nella just turned a year old and doesn't quite know that Bu is gone for good. I'll post pictures from this past year of Nella and Bu later, but I wanted you all to know. Prayers for his transition and for me welcomed. Much love, Jen.

I bought a new leaf blower thing today... It was a nice day to try and do some yard work. Nella thought that I was playing just with her and the leaves. She ran and got the zoomies through all the leaves. Glad someone thought it was fun. Personally, I'm starting to think Fall is the WORST season to deal with having a house and a yard. Let it snow, I can ignore snow... but you'll see from the picture below I don't think I can ignore the leaves.
This is the first pile of leaves that are now to the gate of the fenced in area. They need to be moved to the street. UGH!!! Took me an hour and half or so to get them to this point. Another 2 hours... BUT, I don't have blisters from raking! I know, I'm whining. Big Boy Bu just stayed out of the way and avoided the leaf blower...Nella chased and ran through the wind! I couldn't get pictures of her doing that tho!
Bu did get a bit jealous that I was taking pictures and not of HIM.... he barked at me till I started taking a few of him too. So, here he is watching the world go by on this deck.
Ahhhh the joys of a nice crisp fall afternoon.
But now, you can see the problem of a "fall evening" ... this is MY bed. Nella's bed is on the floor but Bu lets her sleep on MY bed now. Nice of him isn't it? I'm starting to think the crib mattress on the floor for Nella is starting to look awfully comfortable. Especially when they decide to play bitey mouth in bed.
I do love my dogs!

|My Girl at 5 weeks.|
I've re-read all of my puppy raising, dog training, how to live in a pack books! Just a few more weeks.
We also are getting new flooring -- thank God -- something easier to clean. Bu's not going to be too happy with less carpet but I sure will.
I need to get to work soon, but just wanted to post the newest pictures. How did you name your dog?
