Abby, “Yay. I could go and explore, right?”
We enjoy going to Malibu beach because we see lots of pet parents with their furry kids walking around, people with kids, and so much more. I want us to make new memories with Abby so I thought this was a good place to start. Abby certainly seemed to enjoy it.
Abby, “Hello. Is anybody there?”
Being that she is part Beagle, it was funny to see her use her nose although on the above picture I am sure she was using mostly her eyes.
Abby, “Moms, I think Alex was right when she said that she saw a sea monster. I think I found one of my own.”
Abby was curious and wanted to explore everything including what she saw in the water. But as curious as she was Abby didn’t leave our sight.
Abby, “Moms, I think I caught a fish for dinner tonight.”
We still miss Alex and there are times when Cynthia and I remember something funny she did and we start laughing and end up crying, but then we remember that we did have Alex for 13 amazing years and that little by little we’ll have to start making memories with our new furry kid. Abby is a year old and there is so much for her to learn and enjoy so we’ll continue our journey with this feisty Beabull girl and make new memories.

Roxie and Abby, “Could we help you get lunch ready?”
For those of us that have furry kids, preparing a meal – heck, even making a sandwich- feels like someone put up a sign that says, “Kitchen help wanted,” and our canine companions never fail to answer such ad. Look at the attention they are paying Cynthia.
Abby, “Mom left the food unattended. Not to worry, I’ll guard it closely. Roxie, “I’ll make sure nobody goes beyond this point.”
Cynthia moved to get something from the fridge, and her two helpers quickly moved into place to “guard” our food. Abby seems to be the more serious out of the two, don’t you think?
Abby to Roxie, “Let me help you. I think you have a little bit of food around this side of your face. Why do you have to be so tall?”
I don’t know, but perhaps Roxie started to smell like something Cynthia was cooking because Abby took a lot of interest in Roxie’s face and ear. It’s always fun to see what our furry kids do when we are cooking. They certainly make life more interesting.

It’s been a couple of months since Alex passed away and we still miss her very much. Today, May 5th, would have been her 14th birthday. I do wish we had more time together, but I am grateful for the time we spent with her. What Alex enjoyed the most was sunbathing. There were times when I had to tell her to come in or move away from the sliding doors because she was already panting. Funny how you miss the little things about those you love and are no longer with us.
Happy birthday my amazing girl. We love you dearly. Till we see each other again.
Marcela and Cynthia
