& Loving it

   For almost 14 years Lily was an ambassador for the B&L, welcoming one and all, especially those with snacks.  When she came to the end of the road some of our friends reached out to artist Maren Conrad and asked to commission this mural not knowing that she and Bobbin were already working on the project and they started within a week.

   And on the night of family meal it was all finished except for the lilies- each of the 200+ guests were invited to pick up a brush and paint by numbers.  Never has there been a better send off, the love that exists in Sacramento never fails to amaze.  Thank you.    

Though neither Lily nor I wrote “The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog” safe to say the words and sentiment  of Blemie and Eugene O’Neill  ring true for both of us.

I would like to believe that there is a Paradise where one is always young and full-bladdered; where all the day
one dillies and dallies with an amorous multitude of houris [lovely nymphs], beautifully spotted; where
jack rabbits that run fast but not too fast (like the houris) are as the sands of the desert; where each blissful
hour is mealtime; where in long evenings there are a million fireplaces with logs forever burning, and one
curls oneself up and blinks into the flames and nods and dreams, remembering the old brave days on earth,
and the love of one’s Master and Mistress.
