Missing Stinky Wink has become a part of life now. I still shed a few tears now and then...especially when I am reminded of something he used to do, or someting we did together. This morning I remembered a game we used to play at our former house. He was about 4 or 5 then. I called the game "Noise in the Bushes." We had a row of boxwoods along the garage, with ivy covering the ground out to the sidewalk. I would sit in a lawn chair on the patio and throw a small rock into the bushes.  Off he would go to check out the noise. When he was satisfied there was nothing there, he would come back to the patio and lie down. After a while I would do it again. He loved that game. So did I. I had forgotten about it until it popped into my mind when I was looking at some bushes along the fence. That brought a tear or two...but also some smiles.

     Well, after we saw Huey last week, my wife said, "I think we should get two." So, after very little discussion, we called the breeder and spoke for one of the brothers--a tri who has already been named Taffy. Here is a picture of the two of them, which I took the first day I saw Huey. That's Taffy right next to Huey...heads together already. Even though that was before we made the decision of bringing two home, I have a sneaky suspicion that they were already plotting something! It should be a real experience!

     Stinky Wink, we miss you..and we always will. The stabbing pain I felt at your loss is becoming kind of a dull ache, but I am learning to live with it as a part of my life. You will always be with us...and we're going to need your unseen presence to help with the babies when they get here. I love you forever, my besses puppo.

They're so cute! With you being retired, I'm sure you will have plenty of time to help the puppies learn about the world around them.  It will also be wonderful to bond with the little 4 legged children for the entire day.  I have a strange feeling that when I retire (many many years down the road) I'll do the same thing you are doing. 

I'm sure Wink is looking down, proud of all the love he taught you to give!
