Backyard patrol


Hey, Huggy Bear here. Josie left me with some responsibilities before she passed. Josie was a very responsible sister. She took her job of patrolling downstairs and especially the back yard very seriously. She used to walk along the back of the couch and look at the squirrels on the deck. She'd get so aggravated that she would huff at them. With her gone Maggie and I are going to share this duty. It doesn't hurt to have a little help when it comes to keeping an eye on those squirrels. 

I'll also take over as the voice of the blog. Poor Josie never even got a chance to update the sidebar before her cancer diagnosis. We have a nice badge that was made for her that I need to put up too. I just needed a break before tackling the blog again. Josie and I were litter mates. It feels weird without get here, even though she spent most of her time downstairs and me upstairs. 

Josie's cremains will come home tomorrow. Dad can pick them up on his way home from work. Mom and Dad are doing ok, but they still get sad. They worry about us too. Mom and Dad went to the beach last weekend and they kept turning on the security cameras to check on us. I think it made them feel better though. 

I'll update again tomorrow.

We think you and Maggie will do just fine taking over, HB. We know how you must feel, missing a true sister. Your mom and dad will be sad still for a while.

It is hard to pick up on life and reassign tasks when one of our own leaves for the bridge. We're glad you are all moving forward, even though you are missing Josie so much. Hugs.

I am sure you and Maggie will do a very good job of continuing Josie's patrols. It is very hard to have a sibling leave, especially a blood sibling but Josie as well as Jasper will always be with you in your heart.
