Baguette is gone

Monday, July 04, 2011

Baguette, my son's Irish Russell Terrier, was staying with me for two weeks but last night, he returned to his father's condo and I had to say my farewells to him.

It was hard because Baguette has such a warm and charming personality. He's the kind of puppy who when I took him to the dog park, dog owners forgot about their dogs and concentrated on Baguette.

Baguette likes making friends. Large dogs don't scare him since he isn't aware that he is small.

Even horses are magnetized by him.

This morning, when I got out of bed, it was strange to not see him staring up at me, giving me the signal that he needed to be taken out. I dressed and headed out for my morning run and while doing so relived my walk with him the day before when we headed for the lake early in the morning to avoid the heat that was predicted for that day. Baguette took many breaks along the way because even though it was early in the morning, it was still sunny out and where there wasn't any shade, it was very warm. He stopped to admire the geese, the birds, children, adults, and the lake.

I will miss him.

    So happy for you that you have those fond memories to hang onto and will certainly get to see your little friend again. It's remarkable how quickly our furry friends can grab a hold of our hearts and how tight a hold they have on us.

    ah.. ask your son if the grandpuppy can come visit you more... we have a dog, belgium teurvian and a grand puppy, a rat terrier. when our son drops him off while on job interviews, the two keep each other entertained.
