But how could I resist this face??
Yes, I really loved my dog! LOL! She was my single girl dog. She lived in a lot of places with me for a lot of years til we finally settled down with Mike! Then she became HIS dog. Trust me on this one, she loved him. All animals love Mike aka St. Francis.
Freckles after her first shave of the summer (May 2006). I love this most recent photo of her. You can see she is really getting gray. But she looks so happy prancing in the yard with her fresh new do and her bandana! I know she is in a happier place now. Lindsay still calls all dogs Freckles and that's hard for us but so cute. She finally calls Max by his name but it comes out "Mack" which is hysterical when she says "Hey Mack!" Again, I know Max will be her growin' up dog but I hope that she'll look back fondly with us and somehow retain some memory of our sweet Freckles.
Some of you have asked if we're thinking of getting anymore pets. We've decided to hold off on that for now. We'd like to bring the next baby home and get through those first months before introducing more chaos into the house. New pets need lots of attention and our hands will be full with a two year old, a new born and a neurotic chow chow. However, we're rescue people. We figure when the time is right some lost soul cat or dog will find it's way on our door step and we'll probably take it in. Maybe we'll wait til the kids are old enough to pick out their own pup or kitten and we'll go that route. Freckles and Midnight are certainly missed. It would feel too disrespectful at this point to get another cat or dog. Hopefully Max will do ok with only Lindsay and soon a new baby for companions. We may have to revisit things later if he's not doing well, we'll see.
Thanks again everyone for all your sweet comments and memories that you've shared. I promise no more tear jerker posts for a while!
Love The Bresnan's!
