It’s a little sad, but this is great fall photo (oh, if you’re in Texas… even though it’s been in the triple digits this week… it’s is fall, it’s true).
If you follow me on social media, particularly Facebook or Instagram, you already know this, and I thought about not posting it, but Bravo has often been such a big part of this blog that it felt wrong not to acknowledge here.
Bravo passed away suddenly last week. He was not feeling well for a few days and when we took him to the vet he went to sleep and stopped breathing.
The house is very quiet, and I still find myself looking for him in his favorite spots (our purple blanket, looking out the window), but I’m glad he had a good life (he would turn 11 this month). He was well-travelled and had lots of friends that tried to win him over even though he was basically a grumpy, old man.
If you want to read more about our good friend Bravo, check out some of his older posts.
Bravo would like to
wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Now let him inside.
Give me a Merry Christmas haikute in the comments.
Before you ridicule me for dressing my dog for the rain please let me explain:
1) It was $2.50 at Old Navy
2) CAN’T YOU SEE HOW CUTE HE IS????
Do you dress your animals like humans? Or are you like Monica?
As of today I am 39 days away from seeing this little guy (not that I’m counting…). His expression in this photo is kind of how I feel when I’m thinking about him. He’s pretty much my favorite (non-human) guy.
Here are some of my favorite Bravo photos from this past year (give or take a few months).
It’s not Christmas, but this photo never fails to make me smile.
I like how delicate his paws look here. I think he looks very proper.
Our Christmas is not snowy this year (and there aren’t many years when it is) but this photo reminds me of The Guns and my first Christmas Eve as a married couple. It was snowing and Bravo just did not get it. That look says “Let me inside! You people are crazy! Also, don’t I look cute in this Christmas sweater?”
I don’t know what you’re doing this Christmas, but I hope you enjoy it. Enjoy giving, celebrating, your family, your friends, and your sweater and antler-wearing pets.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
As you read this I’m back to work. That was a long vacation that totally spoiled me, but a routine will be good again.
See you in April Bravissimo!
Another dancing video for your internet find this week. I must admit, this one and last week’s were introduced to me via one of my ballet professors from college who has become quite the internet curator.
