Herbie's Home

My big brother Herbie came home tonight. So I went to accompany him for a while in his new resting place. (M: Helios actually automatically went to that corner and lied down for a while after we placed Herbie's ashes there.)



My M says since Herbie didn't get to wear the new collar in the past, he'll get to wear it now. And because the bowl is too big to fit into the hole, she took up a nice DWB doggie's suggestion to put a peekture of his bowl there. And she decided to add bagels as well.

So here's my big brother Herbie with all his worldly possessions.



Welcome home, big brother!

It is just the perfect spot, believe Herbie loves it too, cos he can 'guard' the dining table.
Helio must have sensed that his big brother is home, hence welcoming him back. Its very touching to see that Herbie's new resting place is so nicely done, it brought tears in my mommie's eyes. Herbie was a beautiful dog, and he's still beautiful now.

What a perfect spot for all of Herbie's treasures. Helios looks so sad. We still miss Herbie so much! We think of all of you so often!

Mistress made the mistake of reading all the other posts again. More floods of tears. He left you in his own home. He has come home again...........but we know how you feel.

Helios will need lots of love now because he will be feeling so lonely.

We feel for you so much.

Helios, it was really sweet and heartwarming of you to spend time with your big bro the moment he arrived back home. Shows that you're not oblivious to what's really happening...

Techie dog came across blog and read it from start to present. He fell in love with Herbie and was sad to see him go. Dog love is different than any other love, and Techie knows that while Herbie will never be forgotten, many years of joy, sillyness, messyness and affection are still to come with Helios. Doggy kisses.
