Yes. It’s Wednesday. Time for some StuART.
Oh boy. What’s not to love about this little puppy StuART? Enjoy!
Now, for those who might be new to this pawty or have been away for a while, here’s what you need to know. So you can catch up with the rest of us, or simply have your memory refreshed.
The Scottie Chronicles is all about Scotties. In one way or another. It’s also about Stuart – a precious, precocious and perceptive boy who chose us to live with – The Peepstress and The Dad Peep – for his entirely wonderful life.
We’d hoped his life would have taken him into old age, but it wasn’t to be. He left us a year ago next month. Taken by hemangiosarcoma. At a young 9-1/2 years old.
For a year The Dad Peep and I have grieved our hearts and souls dry. And we’ve often said, “he left us too soon”, but from whose perspective? From ours? Certainly. From his? Maybe not. From yours? I think so.
Grief is a such a twisting, turning path.
We now see that Stuart’s life is just as it was planned. Whether we agree with the plan or not, it happened the way it was supposed to happen. The way it was going to happen.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. That Tennyson. He was a smart cookie.
