So very true.

RIP Betty, thank you for being a friend to animals.

Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a Golden Retriever, one’s life and one’s outlook is never quite the same.

Memories of Sweet and Sassy Rommie

Five years ago today I said “See you later.” to my sweet and sassy golden girl. Can’t believe it’s been that long already.

“Can You Grin Like This?”

This was taken the day she discovered spaghetti is human rawhide. I managed to drop some uncooked spaghetti on the floor which she quickly retrieved. She then went outside and laid in the evening sun just holding her strand of spaghetti until she was ready to eat it.

So I am going to honor her memory today by playing outside, without a mask, as the fresh air is good for the body and soul. Rommie was all about embracing this God given day by playing. I suggest you do the same.

Swimming Lesson

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Enjoy your day running free in heaven and partying with Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa’s. Love and miss you my golden girl.

W.W. – National Dog Biscuit Day

For those of you who have a dog in your life, spoil them rotten today. I miss my Rommie, my golden girl.

Also for those of you who do not have dogs, this quote is the truth. Those of you who do have dogs already know this wisdom.

 “If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.”

Author Phil Pastoret

Below is a favorite recipe of Rommie’s. Oh and there is no reason you can’t eat it either.

So enjoy with a furry friend today!

I originally found this recipe in either Your Dog or The Whole Dog Journal as those were the magazines I subscribed to when Rommie adopted Joe and me.
