It’s been several months since I posted anything here and really need to do a better job of blogging about life. I thought I might introduce you to the newest member of our family. This is Yogi, or Yogi Bear as I call him — much to hubby’s dismay, a Maltese/Chihuahua mix who stole my heart a few weeks ago. Yogi joins our family after we lost our baby, Gracie (Cairn Terrier), in late February. She was the joy of our lives for a little more than eight years. It broke my heart to watch her pass but I was thankful when her pain finally ended. Yogi doesn’t replace her but he certainly makes the grief easier to bear.
As someone who never had pets growing up, I’ve surprised myself to feel such attachment to my pets. However, they each bring such interesting perspectives to each day. When I’m stressed at work, I walk in the front door to find my three cats and pup waiting for me, tails wagging. Such simplicity. Their pleasure eases the stress away and helps make that transition from work to home. In fact, Yogi joined me in the office on Friday afternoon.
