I haven't posted in a very long time. It may seem sad to restart my blogging by sharing our loss, but I need to make sure to remember our dog, Jedi.
This is one of the last photos we had taken of Jedi. We lost him on Mother's Day. He had some neurological issues. He was twelve years old.
Jedi was a sweet dog. He was very protective of the family and was a very good watch dog. When he didn't trust a visitor, he made sure to keep himself between the new person and the family.
Then he curled up next to her to nap.
Later, the other new kitten, Jubilee, joined them and he welcomed her to snuggle. Jubilee and Magik are sisters from the same litter.
Jedi is on the left and his brother from the same litter, Padawan, is on the right. Their mother was a wire-haired Toy Fox Terrier. Their father was a Maltese. Jedi got his mother's curls.
Jedi's fur would get crazy when it was long. We tried to keep it shorter so he wasn't too hot and so it wouldn't tangle.
Jedi is napping on the bed with three of the cats. Magik has the red collar. Her sister, Jubilee is the dark shadow above her and beside Mystique, our Maine Coon.
Jedi is in the front wearing his sweater because he and his brother, Padawan, got their hair cut and it was cold. So both had on their sweaters.
Here's Jedi on the steps.
Jedi would wait for my husband to get out of bed and then move up and use his pillow. I would tuck him in and he would sleep for a bit.
Jedi, on the left, and his brother liked to have wagon rides, which made it difficult when I wanted to use the wagon for yard work. I would have to scoot the dogs to the front and then pile my hand shovels and other items in the back end of the wagon.
I made this pet quilt to donate to the local shelter, but Jedi got on it and seemed to want it. So this one stayed at our house.
Padawan is on the left and Jedi is on the right. They are both puppies, only a couple of months old, in this photo.
Here's Jedi as a puppy. We miss him. Love you, little guy.
Jedi: December 1, 2006 to May 14, 2018.
