Although I always try to be a happy boy, this has been a tough week for me to keep up my spirits. It seems like the days have been filled with bad news.
First, I got word about the passing of dear 'The Bleu'. Following a brave battle against cancer, he finally decided to go and join his beloved brother 'The Luke'.
11 November 2002 to 26 January 2012
I hope you have fun with your bro forever.
No sooner had that news sunk in than I learnt that my dear friend Maggie had left us.
10 July 1998 to 28 January 2012
Over the years, I've come to know Maggie (and Mitch) so well through following their wonderful blog. In turn, they have always been supportive of my blog - leaving the kindest of comments every time I have posted.
Finally, I received the saddening news that my namesake, Homer, had also crossed over the rainbow bridge.
November 2007 to 31 January 2012
Homer, and the rest of his pack from the Bumpass Hounds, have also become firm favourites of mine in the blogosphere. I can still remember the day when he first commented on one of my blogs and introduced himself. I couldn't believe that there was another 'Homer the Golden Retriever' out there! Ever since then, I have followed Homer and his family's adventures with relish.
So sad, and yet so many happy memories to hang on to. I will miss you The Bleu, Maggie and Homer with all of my heart.
Run wild and run free dear friends.
