RIP Howie :(

In my world, pets are equal to children. Proper diets, regular checkups, plenty of exercise, discipline, etc, etc are all just part of the process of raising, caring for them and loving them like our own children. So when a family member passes, it takes a toll on everyone involved. With a heavy heart, I honor this post to the lasting memory of Howie. Recently, one of our friends in Brooklyn lost her Howie. I only had the privilege of meeting him once, but I immediately knew he was incredibly fun-loving, loyal and had such a joyful spirit!

Blessings to Howie up in doggy heaven and that he's running around and doing everything he loves to do! Many prayers to Howie's mommy for closure, acceptance and celebration for everything that he gave her in his lifetime...

Sooooo unbelievably adorable!

Love the way he's looking as his mom in the picture...

One of my favorite dog pictures...ever.
