|December 28th||Happy #12 Birthday to my dearest girl, Sassy.|
|December 25th||to one and all.|
|December 20th||A very sad day today…. my Phantom would have been 9 years old today had he not died from hemangiosarcoma. I can’t believe he’s been gone 2.5 years already. I think of him often and my heart still aches. With going back to coursing and racing this fall with Phlirt’s kids, I have smiled often when others have reminded me of some of Phantom’s silly quirky ways – like when he loaded into the same racing box with his sister, Phlirt, much to her chagrin. Or when he dove into the bucket of dead plastic bags/bunnies and trying to get his head out was a major undertaking – dead bunnies were everywhere. Or even his obsession with the wheels and batteries at a coursing set-up such that folks would have to be posted around the equipment for me. Oh what fun Phantom and I had in his day and what an impression he made on so many. I miss him dearly.|
|December 12th||Phlirt is definitely pregnant -- puppies due January 12th.|
