|Canyon's baseball game was once again canceled. Today was supposed to be a make up from Memorial Day which was also canceled. So, we were to bring hot dogs and cookies. Since our bbq plans after the games are now not happening at all, we decided to cook a pack today and freeze the rest.|
|It was just Canyon and mom today...we shopped, walked at the marina with Malaki, and hung out at the house. I had to beg him to sit with me while they cooked. Then he decided he didn't want to eat outside, AFTER I dragged all the things we needed out there.|
|Last night all was well. Jamocha came in from a potty break with Malaki, got her treat and ran into her crate. At 3:30 she started howling. I assumed she was having a bad dream. I started to walk down the hall but she stopped so I turned back to the bedroom. When I got up this morning, there was no movement in the living room. That's not uncommon. I took a shower, got dressed, came out to the living room and Malaki decided he was awake enough to get up. No movement in the crate still. Still not uncommon. I let Malaki out and walked by the crate and asked Jamocha if she was planning to wake up. Then I looked more carefully. I opened the door to the crate loudly hoping to startle her. Nothing, I reached in and her ear and side of her face was cool. No breathing. She was gone. Her howl will haunt me. What happened to her? We will never know. She turned 1 just 2 weeks ago.|
As I was digging her grave, I heard her gallop and panting heading towards me. I was about to call out to her to stop because I didn't want her to get in the mud hole I was working on. For a second, I had forgotten and then remembered why I was making a mud hole to begin with. But it was then I realized she wasn't in that cold body anymore. She was free to run wherever she wanted. She probably even helped me dig. She loved to dig.
RIP Sweet girl.
|We headed to the river to see how high it has gotten with all the recent rain. If you look at the people fishing in the middle, just over their heads you can see the top of the swings at the playground.|
|The pavilion there is where we have had Buddy Walk gatherings. The walking trial is 20 feet under water now.|
|The news was here, but we didn't get interviewed (fine by me). Its supposed to rise another 2 or so feet before it starts to go down. More rain in the forecast.|
|This one I took from the driveway. Then the wind picked up, BIG TIME. We dashed in the house and ran to the laundry room. The bbq grill went tumbling, Jared lost trim off his truck, the dog house blew away and broke as well as a lawn chair. Sahara said the shed door is broken too but I didn't check it out before it got dark. It was only straight line wind, but it was scary!|
|The flowers were a free bonus acquired from a graduation party the night before. Sahara was told to take a centerpiece home when it was over.|
|My 15+ year old rose bush is still beautiful. It was here when we moved in, but I transplanted it from under the front windows to out by the street, I never water it or give it any attention at all. It has 3 roses (this one the freshest as big as my hand) and 14 buds.|
