Missing Alex – Happy 14th Birthday

IMG_6568

Siesta Time

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.

Alex

Happy birthday my amazing girl.  We love you dearly.  Till we see each other again.

Your moms,

Marcela and Cynthia

It’s Raining Dogs

dogs1When we lived in Maryland, I thought to myself, “Wow!  There are a lot of dogs.”  Dogs always put a smile on my face, and when I realized that there seem to be even more dogs in Massachusetts,as you can imagine, I was ecstatic.

dogs2So, where did we go to see so many dogs, you are probably thinking, right? We went to Pinebank Promontory, Jamaica Pond, located in Jamaica Plain, MA. The day was beautiful, cold, but sunny.  Cynthia told me that I had the wrong place so I corrected that.  I am the kind of person that can get lost in a small parking lot of McDonald’s, which really happened to me years ago.  My sense of directions is awful.

dogs4One thing I saw and loved was pet parents keeping their dogs fit and healthy.  Not to worry, Alex did not run.  We walked with her and took breaks in order not to over do it.  She’ll turn 13 in May and Cynthia and I have to figure out what to do for her birthday.  Any ideas?

Happy 12th Birthday Alex

12years1Yesterday, my beautiful Alex turned 12 and we decided to celebrate her birthday by taking pictures and having some cake.  Alex wasn’t interested in posing for pictures because all she wanted to do was kiss her sister.  Look at Bella’s face.

12years2Bella decided to hide from Alex because she did not want to stop her lovefest.  Either that, or Bella just did not want to be photographed.

12years3Cynthia made that cake for Alex, and as you can see Alex was impatiently waiting for her piece of cake.  She was probably thinking, “Hurry up, please, and give me some cake.”  Happy birthday my beautiful girl.

Happy 11th Birthday Our Beautiful Alex

Alex turned 11 on May 5th, but because we had company we had to celebrate it on Monday.  In the morning, for breakfast, I made Alex some stir-fry which she inhaled mixed with her kibble.  In the afternoon, after she napped, we went to Petco and got some cupcakes, and a Nylabone.

Once we got home, Cynthia was trying to place Alex and the cupcakes properly for a picture, and since I am the worst photographer ever, as you can see when you see this picture, I just took picture after picture while Cynthia was sighing with desperation.

I don’t think Alex cared to pose for pictures so I sat next to her and the first thing she wanted to do, of course, was eat all the cupcakes.

We, then, agreed that Alex could be trusted with the cupcakes, although between you and me if we had turned our backs to her she’d probably would have eaten all of them, and so Cynthia took this picture.

For some reason, Alex found the lighter quite interesting as you can see by the way she is looking at it.  No, Alex, this lighter is not food.

We finished by taking a family portrait.  Alex’s torture was over, and she finally got to eat some cupcakes to her heart’s content.  Happy Birthday Alex!
