She's here!

We're both pooped. I'll post more pictures tomorrow but I had to mark her first day home.

New baby sister

I miss having dog energy in the house. I love the cats dearly but I need a dog - actually, I need two dogs. But I know I have to do this one dog at a time.
So, yesterday I picked out a baby Goldendoodle. She was born May 11 and can't come home yet for another few weeks but I can't wait.

Chaz's sweet memories

I have written about this before but it bears repeating because I am still amazed it is happening after three years.
Chaz always liked to snuggle with John in the evenings. His ritual was that John would be in bed watching TV and little Chaz would jump on the bed, climb onto John's chest and snuggle his little head into John's neck, right behind his left ear. There he would purr and rest and many times fall asleep. And I know he smelled John's scent there. John wore Obsession for Men exclusively so I know he always had that scent on his neck.
Fast forward to today.
Chaz's new ritual is that he still wants to smell John. Just before I leave the shower I use some of John's Obsession for Men shower gel because I like to smell like John, too. I smear some over my head and neck and then rinse off.
When I come out of the shower, Chaz gets up on the toilet and reaches up for me. I then have to lean down so he can push his little head into my hair and head and grab me with his paws and rub and purr. He does this for several minutes, getting very excited. And if I forget to use the gel he takes one whiff and walks away.
He still remembers his Daddy.
