"GOOD NIGHT, Mrs. Calabash--wherever you are!" (Not a Wine Post)

"GOOD NIGHT, Mrs. Calabash--wherever you are!"
In memory of our beloved dogs.

Rebecca's Lulu (she was thirteen and a half years old)

Mimi's Lukie Bear

My thoughts are with my sister Diane and the loss of little "boy" Bo! I'm sure those with tender hearts can identify with her!
It brings back sad memories of last year, and though others won't agree: "all dogs go to heaven!" 

Den-Bo passed away this morning. Something causing his belly to be distended. He was at vet even yesterday. They were going to do an ultrasound next week and we did not know how serious it was. My little baby is gone and we are heartbroken.

Waiting for my shot; ouch. 

Mondesi was my constant companion for more than thirteen years, in the mountains of New Hampshire, bird watching, playing hide-go-seek, retrieving the baseball Ethan smacked into the out-field and returning it to me, the pitcher. 
Though she drank no wine and had nothing to do with wine, I felt it befitting to say "good-bye" where I now spend most of my time: in the cyber-world of wine, a place where a digital memory of her will live on, probably as long as post-modern-man continues in this civilization! 

One time we discovered these 6 or 7 giant red-ant nests on Bear Mountain; not the best place for her to take a break!

My favorite picture of my favorite dog!

Thanks to all who have expressed their concern.

"GOOD NIGHT, Mrs. Calabash--wherever you are!"

God made a dog!



  1. Beautiful girl.
    I hope this doesn't mean what I think it means. But if it does...sleep well Mondesi.

    1. Thank you everybody! My sister was telling me that when her dog died she cried for two weeks; it is amazing how much we love them, but then again, they loved us!
