When I got up this morning,
I had no idea what I was going to do or what the day would bring.
Having no patience and several hours to kill
before the Masters came on,
I loaded Mollie in to the car and headed out to Lowes
and Home Depot to see if they had any geraniums yet.
I know.."It's a little early"....
I didn't get that much and it's easy enough to put them in the garage at night if need be. (Until I plant them, that is).
When I got home, I had two messages.
The first was from the man that bought my house asking if I could help get the pond up and running.
I went over and hooked up the pump and filter.
It should have been done a month ago
but will clear up in a few days.
They told me that "my duck" had left and her eggs were gone.
Not so..She flew out of there when I went to look at her nest..
She'll be back ..She's been nesting there eight years.
Same duck?? "Quackers".
The second message was from Bev and so very sad.
They had to put Sadie down today.
She was unable to walk.
She was nine and a very special dog to me.
We bonded when she was very young.
I had kept her while her family was on vacation.
That bond continued throughout her nine years.
She will be missed at Beehaven Acres and certainly by me.
I wouldn't trade their love for the world but
losing them is just so, so hard.
You were a very sweet girl and I loved you..
even though you weren't terribly fond of Mollie.
I know you're at peace in doggie heaven.
Thanks for your love...
To Bev, Hubs, Maddie and "the boys " ....
You gave her a wonderful life..So sorry for your loss.
