I didn’t have anything new to write about today, so I was looking for a Christmas-y picture to post and ran across this one I took of our dog, Tasha, last year at Christmas. She’s been the best dog! We got her at six weeks old in October 1996, so she’s 12 years old now. She is the dog that everyone loves – so sweet and calm, wonderful with kids. We are taking her to Colorado to live with Patrick’s sister while we are in Italy. We are so happy that she has a place to live with people who want her, and another golden to keep her “young” and active. We will miss her a ton though! The house is going to feel empty without her here to greet us or snuggle up with us.
