A picture wall for Marshy

Last night Minx got in my closet and walked out with one of my shoes. The shoe probably weighed half as much as he did.

First I wish everyone a very merry Christmas. Where I am, it’s a white Christmas. I woke up to this… However beautiful today is, it also marks a year since my Boomer passed away. He was my first dog I ever had. It hit me very hard when he passed because I wasn’t expecting it. He waited for me to come home and I was so fortunate to see his last breath leave his body.
