SEPIA SATURDAY | OUR NEW NORMAL

By Saturday, July 26, 2014 10 , , , Permalink

It just seemed “right” that I chose Sepia Saturday – (July 26th), to update you on how we’re doing.

Today marks one month since our Life without Leo began.

Today marks 30 days on our journey towards our new normal.

We’re finding our way…

I adore his expressions

It helps to have such tremendous support within the pet community. I will never ever be able to thank everyone enough for caring as much as you do.

Yesterday Harley went back to doggie day camp at Olde Towne Pet Resort. He was showered with “oodles and doodles” of love….

Yes, he's up on the counter!

Look at Harley checking on a reservation for someone…

I just love this place and these people

We’ve been a little “off schedule” with our grooming regiment. Harley was overdue for a pawicure…

We don't like to have hair sticking out through our paw pads - Yuck!

We’re out and about more often these days, creating new adventures. We’ve even picked up a couple of D.W.T.‘s (Doodle Walkers in Training)…

By August they might be ready for a solo walk!

We’re adjusting and learning to like our new normal…

    Adorable photos. I’m sure the new normal is pretty tough, but you and Harley are doing great. Leo would want you both to carry on with everything. Still can’t believe he is gone and we never even met him in dog.

      Yes you did Emma, it’s what we bloggers call a “virtual meeting!” Harley and I are simply going with the flow and everyday gets a teeny tiny bit easier. Take care Emma, have a great weekend with your new houseguest…

    I can’t believe it has been a month. You are so incredibly strong, I agree that Leo would want it that way. (((hugs))) to you and Harley

      You and me both Caren, it feels like yesterday… I can still see, smell and hear him in every room. He’ll always be with me that’s FURsure. Take care my friend 🙂
