Goodbye, Sweet, Sweet Huff

I am so sorry not to have yet posted any Christmas Cheer but, alas, our beloved Great Dane, Huff (of Doritos Crash the Super Bowl fame) passed away on Saturday.  Joe and I are so sad and preoccupied.  My apologies.  I promise to share some good stuff for the holidays soon.

On the upside, his passing was a profound reminder of what is really important during this magical season and beyond:  living gratefully for all we have and all those we are privileged to love, whether human or animal.

  8. So sweet, Aimee; thank you. I miss him terribly, but feel so fortunate, as you say, to have had the relationship we did. One of my friends who lives far away said that in every photo he could tell that Huff loved being loved by me. That just about did me in. Happy holidays to you!
