some inside pics

Here are some pics of the inside of the addition. The gate is for George, since he has enjoyed “marking his new territory.”

Sat project and house update



I found a mosaic cover for our old patio table and patio rocks that you can easily make into a patio. The company only sent one box, so I guess we will finish this project next weekend. Also wanted to include an updated picture of our ever-changing house. Floors and painting are scheduled for next week.

keepsake

I was trying to figure out the best way to honor our loyal Bear. I found a keepsake locket that holds a small portion of ashes. Tonight I put some of Bear and Flash’s ashes in the locket so that they both can always be with me. I also found a potter that makes custom urns. She is making a tennis ball shaped urn for Bear. It seems appropriate since he had one in his mouth all the time 🙂

Bear


Bear passed away this afternoon. Our very sweet contractor called me at work to let me know that Bear was not doing well. Rahul was home and was able to check on him and be with him when he died. We are so grateful for the extra 3 weeks we had with him while we tried the steroid treatment. He was actually frisky this weekend and wanted to play ball. I think he wanted to be in charge of when it was his time to go, and he decided to go today. Interestingly, today would have been Flash’s 12th birthday. Our vet said that maybe Bear was ready to join his beloved pal.

He was the most loyal, protective dog we will ever know. He was, in fact, my first baby.

siding up




Here are some pics of the addition with the siding on. Dry wall went up this week, which means it is time to pick out paint colors and lots of other things to start the decorating process.
