January 18, 2021 was a sad day because I had to put down Cody Code, one of the sweetest dogs ever born. Had he lived another week, he would have been 15 years and 7 months. We were lucky to have him for as long as we did, and I still fill with tears when I think about him.
We have two other dogs, Bobbi and Sonny. Bobbi is a Bichon Shih Tze Yorkie, and Sonny is a Maltese Poodle cross. Bobbi will be 11 in June, and Sonny will be 4 in May. Because of the age spread, we could envision Sonny being alone for a long time, and we don’t want that to happen, so we got a puppy. Robbie is the same mix as Bobbi, and he was born on January 3rd.
Those of you who have had puppies around know that they are somewhat exhausting, like any baby. As a result, I’ve decided that I’m only going to post once a week for a while. As I type this, Robbie is asleep on my lap, and he couldn’t be more adorable. However, eventually, he’ll awaken. Anyway, that’s what’s happening in my life right now, and so I’m slowing things down so I don’t get frazzled as I concentrate on house-breaking Robbie and avoid stepping on him. (I found myself feeling somewhat frazzled today, and my “frazzledom” is what has motivated this post.) Below are pictures of “The Sillies”.
