I've not been able to come to the blog table for a bit. We lost another beloved four-legged family member and I just haven't been able to bring the news to the blog. What's forcing my hand now is other news that I'd like to impart but Dudley must come first. He deserves it.
You can find a post about Dudley on March 15, 2016 Dudley's Moment to Shine explaining how we came about bringing the boy into our lives. So I won't repeat the background.
But, I will say he was a smart bugger (I could tell him my son was coming home and he'd run to the front door in excitement), had a sense of humor and was beautiful. Not cute, but beautiful. Shiny and black. And big. And I loved every inch.
He was with us for 11 years. Eleven precious years. Duds, you'll be in my heart always.
