|Cable & Coral Dog Days of Summer at Amazon|
I know I do not wish to be in the present moment, as sadly, on June 30th, I lost my dog Tidbit to old age and the big "C" when Cancer took its toll and took her away from me. I have spent the dog days of this summer mourning the loss of woman's best friend.
In fact, no longer being able to share daily walks on the beach with my girl, I no longer enjoy where I am. I have not walked the neighborhood nor the beach without her. It seems pointless to be here in the Sunshine State of Florida without Tidbit by my side.
Nonetheless, Tidbit's legacy lives on in my article writing online and she shall be ever-present in future writings.
- On one of our last walks to the beach together Tidbit learned a new trick and that became the fuel to caution my readers about the need to take precautions to prevent heatstroke in dogs.
- In my review of P.D. Eastman's "Go Dog. Go!" I said so long to my canine companion.
- As the Book For Kids Contributor on Squidoo, the future holds a few more children's dog book reviews of a positive nature from this PAWSitive reading list.
As for me, I know not what my future holds in store, maybe another moving adventure, maybe not. I can assure you of one thing, though ... I will not be without a dog by my side for long!
I am a dog lover and I will sure keep you posted on the future dog walks in my life. In the meantime, let us enjoy what is left of the dog days of summer and the gifts the present holds for us all.
