May 6 at the barn

Whenever Bunny sees
one of the big dogs
she flips into a passive pose
Buzzard is tied up at the barn
because he likes to chase
the birds and ducks

Certified Used 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L

Traded in one of our two farm trucks today.
This is a 2005 Dodge Dakota 122,000 miles.

for a 2014 Honda CR-V 66,000 miles.
We want to start taking some weekend trips
occasionally. Mike read car reviews
and thought this would be a good
car for us.
She is white, and her name is Bitzi,
in memory of our beloved dog
that got killed.

Sunday, hiking around barn

Bunny is doing great.
She has a much different
personality than Bitzi though.
Like this article says,
Scotties are not lap dogs
but she likes to be near.  

Bunny is a Wheaten Scottish Terrier.
At some point,
we're hoping the left ear
will pop up and be erect.
It's supposed to.

Day 2 with Bunny

Online, Mike found an 8 week-old
Scottish Terrier puppy
(Bitzi was a mini Schnauzer).
I'm am still grieving
for Bitzi but Mike wanted to
get me started on another girl.
I don't think I'll ever get over
losing Bitzi, she was
one of a kind.

Bitzi - 10/12/16 to 4/7/18

Several times in my life something so horrible has happened that my heart is overwhelmed with grief. This is another one of those times. My white-female mini Schnauzer, Bitzi, got hit by a car and died last night. I was deeply bonded to her; she was deeply bonded to me. She was antisocial which I always told her that she was like me. She loved her family which included Mike, other pets, and me.  She showed no interest in anyone else. 

Now, I look out the front door to her bloodstain down on the road.

She was always full of energy, slept snuggled up to me, very smart, thought it was fun to be disobedient, loved car rides and long walks.
