My Alex. A Pitbull mix.
Looking at pictures of my Alex and the dogs that we’ve taken care of throughout the years filled me with nostalgia and gratitude. Alex lived 13 years and she was the most amazing dog ever, and although when we lost her we were devastated, I wouldn’t trade the time we had with her for anything in this world.

When I look at the pictures of Alex, Maggie and so many other dogs, yes I feel a little sad because they are no longer with us, but more than anything I feel joy. Some pictures also make me laugh because they bring back funny memories. And with that being said, I would ask you, who said nostalgia is a bad thing?

Alex, Sarris, and Dexter (Left to Right)
My Alex was an amazing dog and even though she was part Pit Bull she was the friendliest dog I’ve ever met, and I want Abby to be like Alex. Now, please understand that some dogs, just like people, are more friendly than others. Dogs are individuals.
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?”
Abby – a Beagle/Bulldog mix – is naturally friendly. I’d say overly friendly, but even like that I expose her to different dogs, such as cutie pie Roxie. The more your dog interacts with other dogs the better and more relaxed she will be. Enjoy your weekend.
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.
