"Enjoy the little things in life ~ one day you'll wake up and realize they were the big things"

Tuesday, August 9, 2016


We decided that today is the day (to end this poor guy's pain and say goodbye).  Suki joined our family in 2004, when I was pregnant with Samuel.  We were living downtown, didn't really have a yard and I was about to have a 4th child (under the age of six) - I wasn't really feeling the need to take care of one more living creature! . . . BUT, I had a five year old who had been praying for a "small, white, fluffy dog - who didn't shed".

The night he arrived (on pretty short notice...) we happened to be eating carry-out pizza on the stairs (because we just had our carpet cleaned and it was still damp, and our furniture in disarray). So, we have a silly tradition of eating pizza on the stairs with Suki every year on the anniversary of that November night. The kids decided it would be fitting to do that one last time (a few months early) as a 'last supper' of sorts.

Run free, sweet boy, we'll miss you!
