goodbye sweet georgia-bella

not quite eight years ago the sweetest, most meat-headed, gassiest puppy (with a real thing for frozen cat poop) became a part of our family. we were living in brooklyn at the time and would take puppy Georgia up and down 6 flights of stairs every day for walks around the neighborhood. she was teeny and oh so funny and she warmed our hearts with her ridiculous escapades. every friend we knew who came to visit and stay with us would leave with a Georgia story. word spread among friends and family that we might just have the dog with the smelliest gas on the planet.

time passed and we moved from new york to tucson. three years later, we welcomed Otto into our home. and three years after that we moved to eugene. this spring, we welcomed Loretta into our home. a lot changed from Georgia's puppyhood until now. she rolled with it. she was so good with Otto. she loved running through snow in new york,  through the park in tucson, and exploring the ivy in our backyard here in eugene. 

and no matter where we were or what we were doing, people would just take one look at Georgia and smile. she was an awesome friend and we are so sad that she got sick. it happened so suddenly; really too suddenly. it doesn't feel real yet. but already we miss her.

goodbye sweet georgia-bella.

Oh Lindsey, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Nothing prepares you for the loss of a pet, your first "baby". Hugs to all of you. May she rest in peace & watch over you all. xox
