Paddy 2002 - 2017

It is with a sad heart that I write this blog post about Paddy, my dog of 15 years. He passed away on April 27, 2017 and his loss hit our family hard. While I still knit and read while I grieved, I didn't have a blog post in me last week. I'm sure I will feel his loss for the rest of my life; he grew up with my children and was indeed my third child.

He was a big fan of a good chew bone:

He was also a good sport when his human siblings forced him to do things like listen to Fallout Boy:
His favorite spot to hang was the futon in the playroom even when the kids outgrew the playroom:
He also loved snow even though his Mom does not:
He was often at my feet when I knit or read (or stealing my chair when I was elsewhere). Paddy, you will be missed.


  1. Laura I am so very sorry that your best friend is in heaven. If only our pets could live as long as we do! He is beautiful and he had an awesome life because of your love and devotion.

  2. Laura, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of one family member. Losing our fur babies is tough. But I see from your instagram account that you have found someone else to try and fill that void :)
