Sad Monday!!

I know I had promised Hawaii pictures and a regular post, but today I had to go with my mom to put our 14 year old yellow lab Becca to sleep. This was very hard for my mom because Becca was such the perfect dog. It hurt so much to see my mom cry and I was sad too because I grew up with Becca. Here is a picture from a month or so ago. She still looked happy even though she was sick with cancer. My mom took such great care for her!

We miss you Becca!!!

I thought I would take this post to introduce you to my mom's other dogs...

A year before we got Becca we bought what was my first dog ever, Champ the Maltese. Champ is now 15 years old. He is still moving around, although we joke that he had Dementia.

These were my mom's only dogs until 2 years ago when she got sad knowing that Becca and Champ were getting old. So December of 2006 my mom got a Powder Puff Chinese Crescent (usually the Chinese Crescents are the ugly dogs with no fur, but the Powder Puff has the same body type but with lots of hair). My mom named her Noelle because she got it at Christmas time.

Then in May of this year my mom added another to the family this is the Yorkie named Angel Baby:)

Well this post is obviously not health related (and I even took food pictures of all of my meals for Monday) but the sadness of losing Becca made it too hard to post about food. I will try my best to give you a good post tonight about Hawaii or healthy living!!

Thanks for understanding!

Aimee, you may remember my post back in June, when I had to put my dear Sheltie, Kiwi, to sleep. I feel for you, and please know that you have my deepest sympathies. This post of yours was a wonderful tribute.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dog, Becca. I know how tough it is to lose pet. I will be thinking about your guys.

Becca is a beautiful dog. I'm thinking of ya'll! This was a very sweet post. Animals are so special.

I'm so sorry Aimee. Pets do really hold a special place in families...I've had to put down a few dogs and leave many of them behind when I moved to the States. All the animals in this post are beautiful! Deepest sympathies to you and your mom.

I can't begin to write how sorry I am. After we put my dog to sleep when I was in 6th grade, I gave up my lifelong dream of becoming a vet because I knew I could never do that (even though I know that it is actually a GOOD thing because the dog is being put out of his/her suffering). My thoughts are with you and your family.

And I'm jealous you got Hawaiian pineapple!
