Farewell, Sweet Friend

At the beginning of March, we said goodbye to our furry child, Blaze the Wonder Dog. It was a sad time in our lives as so much was happening all around us. She was 14 1/2 and lived the most amazing life. She loved playing frisbee, "herding" us, chasing the cat out of the yard, giving an infinite number of kisses, sleeping on the bed, and spending time lying at our feet. We've had a dog for so long that I forgot what it felt like to come home to an empty house--no one to greet you at the door. Even after nearly three months, her absence is still felt. We loved her so.

In honor of our sweet Blazey Girl, Nate and I tracked down an Autumn Blaze Maple tree in Folsom and planted in our front yard. We think it is a fitting tribute to our bright and faithful friend.

These pictures were taken about one month ago. It currently has a ton of leaves. Although it is small, it's going to look beautiful this fall. I'll take more pictures then. Here's a picture of what it will look like when it is mature.
