This is Willie in his new Christmas knit. I always made him a new dog cowl he could wear as his every day scarf for Christmas. He loved getting new knits! I had made the headpiece for my models for a different photo shoot and was surprised he let me put them on him. He did not seem to mind them at all, and I did a whole photo sesh of him wearing them. This was only a year ago. I would never have believed then that he would not be with me this year. I still can’t believe it, really. You never know what a year will bring you. So Merry Christmas to the best pal I ever had and whom I miss every single day. You were a great dog Willie and I hope the angels are knitting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. #MerryChristmas#golden retriever#Knit#handsomedogs#handsomedog#rainbowbridge#antlers
My precious baby transitioned and is running free at the Rainbow Bridge tonight. I’m so sad, and I think I will be for a long time. I’m planning to update this page at least until the end of the year. I have plenty of pictures of him that I could run it for a few more years. So we’ll see. I would love to keep it going .
I wish I had done more with it in the past year. I wish I had knitted for him more and done more photo sessions like we used to do. But he got so tired in the last year. He couldn’t handle taking rides and then walking around to do the pictures like he used to do. I started taking them in the backyard and on the side of the house, and he loved that. I wish I had thought to do more of that sooner.
I’ll share more stories about him and some of our experiences in the days and weeks to come. Right now, I need to just think about him and about how wonderful a dog he was. He was a kinder, better human being than most people. And that’s the truth.
