Ode to Claire



There has been so much going on here the past few weeks. Lack of time and energy = no blogging. But wanted to back up just a bit.

Two weeks ago we did a very hard thing. We let our beloved polar bear, Claire, migrate to a happier home. This was so, so very hard, but in the end we decided it was for the best. Claire was a very loved member of our family for two and a half years. When she joined our family, we had only one kid! And with #5 on the way, things were just getting too stressful - for her and for us. THANKFULLY, my wonderful dog-loving (spoiling?) friend Amanda jumped at the chance to get an amazing dog. So now Claire has someone at her beck-and-call to spoil her rotten in her remaining years!

Although we all miss her, I have peace knowing this was the right thing.

But sure is hard to let such a damn good dog go. 


We love you Claire!
