When I finished making the new banner, I realized I should probably update my About Us page, since I didn't mention Bailey on it before. (What a terrible dog-mom I am!)
While I was adding Bailey to the About Us page, I got the idea to post a This Day in History photo today.
|Bailey & her fave person, Daddy. Aug. 14, 2009|
As I went through all my folders of digital photos (I keep them in folders by year, with the photos names by date... I'm really anal about keeping them in chrono order), these shots of B kissing her Daddy were the only Aug 14 shots I had. (In my pre-blogging life, I didn't take a lotta pics. You?)
This image was a very common site at our house! B loved to kiss Daddy. Abby was a big kisser too, which is where the name of the blog comes from. (Oh the irony that we now have to beg for kisses from Rita. Seriously. Begging. It ain't pretty.)
Here's what I wrote about B in a little tribute that I was able to have posted on The Bark magazine's site:
She would sit in his lap every morning, put her arms around his neck and kiss him before work. We wondered if she thought she had to re-mark him everyday (“Back off other dogs; he’s mine!”), before he went out into the world. After all, he shaved off all her kisses from the previous day. One day, I tried to count her kisses. Lick. Lick. Lick. I gave up after one thousand. We conservatively estimate that she gave him several million kisses over the course of her too-short lifetime.
That's a lotta pooch smooches!
Thanks for letting me be a little wordy about our first dog as a couple on Not-So-Much-Wordless Wednesday!
