Dog Sled

even though it's arctic out we've been trying to enjoy the winter weather as much as possible.  twenty minutes was about all we could handle and this moment was not only bitterly cold, but very bittersweet. it brought up memories of our dog arthur who was loving all the snow just last year.  he even pulled their sled a few times which solidified his coolness in their eyes.  last spring we had to put him down and it really affected cole.  he has dwelled on his death more than we would like and still gets choked up every few weeks talking about him.  dean has handled it better, but still starts many conversations with new people by saying "our dog died!" the awkwardness is funny, but it's sad at the same time.  recently it's obvious that ike has been feeling the loss more and more and the boys have been begging for a friend for him.  my husband and i have always found that pairs work well for us and spring may be the season...
