RoseBud had a lot of clothes & a lot of costumes!  She had many fans on Halloween that would come by to see what she was dressed as.

Here are a few of her costumes.

Still here... It's actually February!  I'm going to do some back posting so check back for new posts soon!

In the meantime... I came across a site called wordle that creates a design or "word cloud" (as they call it) of words used in recent posts. Kind of neat...

Oh, RoseBud

It's been 6 months since we said goodbye to RoseBud.  After she died we started a journal of her. We wanted to capture EVERY memory we ever had - not that we'd EVER forget the time she spent with us.  It's full of nicknames and places we visited and things we did...  One memory is how we would always say "Oh, RoseBud..."

Oh, RoseBud - what do you want to do today?
Oh, RoseBud - we better take you outside.
Oh, RoseBud-  you are so silly.
Oh, RoseBud - your feet are dirty!
Oh, RoseBud - you're the prettiest pup around!!!

Even today, 6 months later, we're still saying it.

Oh, RoseBud - we miss you!

5 Star

Dear RoseBud,

I know you stayed at all kinds of hotels - La Quinta and the Radisson and the Hilton and a couple beautiful beach houses but I'm sorry you never got to stay at a 5 star hotel.  We always talked about taking you to New York City to stay at the Plaza like Eloise and her pug Weenie and we never got around to it.  We were just in Bedford Springs (which we also talked about taking you to visit because it's pet friendly) and thought of you -  you would have liked sleeping in the big comfy bed!

Love the Bud,

Little Pumpkin
