While wishing Sam over at Tails Around the Ranch a happy 14th birthday, I realised that today is Zeke’s 10th! What a bad Mom I am!
I was gonna go on and on about what a fabulous member of the family he has been since that day we drove all the way to Sherbrooke to pick him up, only to have him barf in the car on the way home… and for the next year every friggen time we brought him on a car ride.
Thankfully, he outgrew that problem and enjoyed trips down to the Jersey shore and the Keys in Florida… And then, just to remind me that as we get older, we often regress, has started, once again, to puke in the car. To whit, today, he graced me with it twice. Once on our way to our destination and once just as we were approaching home. Getting older sucks for us all, it would seem.
So instead of telling you how over the years we have gone on miles and miles of walks, through sun and snow and rain and whatnot. How he probably misses my shower in the old house as that was his favourite place to sleep. How he has become a chicken-shit as soon as there is thunder and lightening. How he has always hated when there was yelling in the house. How he stops people as we walk because they just can’t believe how beautiful he is. And how he has been there for me since Mick passed… I just thought I’d share a few (or so) pics of him over the last ten years.
