On Monday November 25 my friend Betty was waiting at a stop sign when an impaired driver lost control of his car and broadsided her, she did not survive.  Betty was on her way to dog class with her corgi Sadie.  A year ago Betty bought an impact crate for Sadie, I remember how happy she was to have it, it was purple, Betty's favourite colour.  Sadie survived the accident because of this crate.

I am  having a hard time wrapping my head around her death.  I am no stranger to death, I have lost my mom, dad, sister and many aunts, uncles and cousins.  Betty's death was different, sudden and it didn't have to happen.  This man decided to get behind a wheel and drive while impaired.
I keep thinking that if she had just left home 5 minutes earlier or later she would have lived.

I trust there is a reason for everything, at least I hope so.  Maybe Betty's death will help the impaired driver get the help he needs, who knows.  For now I will mourn the death of a special friend and wait for the healing to begin.

Birthday Fun

Yesterday was my friend Judy's Birthday.  We took our dogs out to Lync's breeders house for a nice long dog walk and then we had a Birthday lunch.  I couldn't take Kort as I can't get him into the van by myself and the walk would have been way too long for him. I miss him so much on days like this, I wish so much he could join us.
The weather was perfect!  It was sunny and warm with no wind, just like Spring .

Enjoy some pictures from the day......
