Another Good- bye.

I've known that it was coming for a long time.
When my Mom passed away,  the Veterinarian said that Furby, her beloved Bichon Frise had Cushings Disease and probably wouldn't last but another year.
That was four years ago.

With a lot of love and care and on a special diet (very expensive!), he continued to live a happy dogs life and live the life of a fluffy white farm dog.  I know he wasn't always the perfectly groomed white dog that came to live with me.  But he was happy and loved farm life!

His first home was an RV

         He loved traveling and exploring.

Mom, Furby and Pepper

Devil Dog

 One year I found a cute it costume for Halloween.I'm not sure he was as thrilled with the idea as we were.

He played well with others

 Furby attended the 1st International Glamper Campout

     Loved the Beach....
The Sand.... Not so much!

Snuggled into Lolita for Christmas

A year ago when I began to see his health begin to fail I kept thinking of the next camping trip and hoping for one more adventure with the Furbs.  I remember reading the TRAVEL WITH THE BAYFIELD BUNCH post when they lost their beloved little dog, Cora.  It was unimaginable to me that they had to make the long trip home after Cora passed away.  Now I find myself nearly ready to embark on my great adventure without Furby. 

He loved his toys!!

Furby passed peacefully, hearing my voice in his own little bed.
His adventures were many.
He was loved and he will be missed!
Rest in Peace Furbs
