I miss my Griffy Magoo! Baaaahaaahaaha :*( And being here with my mom is making me miss him more because she misses him so much. Griffy is happily spending the month with our cousin and her two dogs in Atlanta, roaming in and out of her lovely garden and napping on the cold kitchen tiles as he likes to do. (Thank you C. Hind!) He is happy, I know. But it doesn’t make me miss him any less.
Saying goodbye to my Griffy was the hardest goodbye I had to make when I left the states. If some of you guys reading this aren’t dog people, you may not understand this, (and then I don’t understand you – that’s a whole other subject! LOL) but Griffy was my rock. We were like peas and carrots, cookies and milk, he and I.
I got him as a puppy in 2004 and we’ve been joined at the hip ever since – until my departure in March. It seems crazy that I’ve been gone so long and have adjusted to life without my dog. I never thought I’d be able to live a day without my Griffy Magoo and his low tide breath. Honestly, I did not think I could make it without him. It’s been a difficult adjustment. But here we are in October, 7 months gone, and I’m ok, but I’m still missing him. It’s not as difficult as it was in the beginning, but dammit it still hurts.
I wish he could somehow read my blog and know that I was thinking about him and that I miss him every day. Although if I am wishing for things that aren’t possible, I may as well wish he could fit in my backpack and travel with me. I’m not entirely sure he would enjoy the trip though, so far away from the comfortable life he knows… Hmmm, he probably wouldn’t have done so well with the monkeys in India or the camels in Israel. Yeah, ok Eryn, not your best idea.
Anyhow, I just thought I’d put some of my favorite pictures up of my boy – my Griffy Magoo :*( I miss you every day!
He always finds a way to be more comfortable than everyone else
The kids loved that I made this special ‘bark-a-lounge’ for them in my old mini – they really did love it, they told me!“Tess, I really would appreciate it if you would move away from me! Go on now, go!”
Wow, ok, this must’ve been like 2005 or 2006. Who can guess where this is taken? A few of you readers will recognize it – this is at Marina View 58 in Cape Coral not long after we finished it. Wow, that seems like 3 lifetimes ago.
“Pupcicles, pupcicles, pupcicles – Yeah, yeah, mom, bring me one!”
Griffy picked out the hot pink seat covers – promise!
