saying goodbye is hard to do.

as i write this, my dog, bo, will be going to sleep...forever.
he is a 15-yr old terrier-chow mix.
i swear he has/had nine lives.
i bought him as a puppy in colorado.
he lived in the snow.
rode the airplane back home to hawaii.
stayed in quarantine for three months.
survived two dog fights with foxy brown,
resulting in one surgery,
and has since been dealing with liver failure,
among other things.
yet, you'll still find him at the dinner table every night begging for food.
my hope is that bobo will still be there when i get home.
that the family reconsidered and decided to care for him
a little while longer...

  1. We are so sorry. A pet is like a member of the family. We lost our dog 4 years ago and we still think about him all the time. 15 years is a long time too! We will be thinking of you and your family.

    Heather and Kayla

  2. So sorry about your dog :( I know how bad that hurts.

    I really like the stripes and leopard combo in this outfit.

    I have been craving wontons for a month now. Mmmm.

  3. Having to let go is the worst but I think with a pet it can be harder in a different way then people. The only thing holding me back from moving out of my dad's house is my cat, Oreo. He's the first love of my life. :)

    &as a second note, those wontons look amazingly delicious.

    Feel better! :)

  4. I am so sorry to hear about Bo - I can only imagine how much you will be missing him :(


  5. Oomph I am so sorry to hear that about Bobo. I understand how you feel. I had two dogs and they were so close, that they died month's apart. Animals are a part of our family! It's definitely a loss. Your family will reach the best decision for all. I adore your entire outfit. That leopard belt looks awesome with your dress and super loving that straw clutch. It is gorgeous! It's a BEAUTIFUL outfit girl. ((HUG))

  6. It's devastating to lose your pet. I am so so so sorry.

  7. Awww I am so sorry dear!! Loosing a pet is soo hard, but especially when you've had one as long as you had bobo. My old dog is about 15 as well and he's slowly going downhill, it's so sad :(
    On a brighter note, you look lovely as always, the leopard print belt is great with the striped dress and your wonderful clutch. Hope you feel better soon

  8. I'm so, so sorry. Losing a pet is so hard...especially when they've become another member of your family after 15 years. I'll be sending virtual hugs your way tonight...

  25. I had to put my cat to sleep on Sunday after 15 years of having her. I held her while they did the procedure and I'm finding it very hard to not cry every second of the day. I know what you're going through and I hope time will do what time does best: heal. My sincerest condolences. I know you'll miss him to death!
