I haven’t done a tasting note for a while. One of my babies (my dog babies) was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy and he’s dying. He’s responding to his meds really well and has finally started eating on a regular basis, and I think he’s toying with sticking around a bit longer. According to the vet, he shouldn’t have made it this long. From this day forward, everyday with have with him is a celebration of beating the odds stacked against him. I love you Octane!
So anywho, it’s been pretty dark around here. There has been tea drinking, but it hasn’t been as enjoyable. This morning I desperately wanted an irish breakfast, but it’s gone. So I went with an english. I just wanted a nice bold cuppa and this guy is perfect. I do not enjoy it steeped for the 4-6 minutes they recommend, far better at around 3 minutes. Perfect compliment to toast and jam.
Here’s to brighter days! :)

I’m sorry to hear about your little one, but that’s so good that he’s eating and you’ve had more days together than you thought you would. My heart goes out to you guys!

I lost my Beni Beagle in May and although it’s almost been a year, it feels like yesterday in so many ways.

It really is awful feeling. He had a perfect day yesterday and now today, since posting this he two episodes. I don’t even know what to do, other than just sit here and stare at him.

So sorry about your dog! I utterly adore my dog, I can not imagine what you must be going through. Hugs from afar!

Aw, so sorry about your pup!

BoxerMama

Thanks guys. We have another vet appointment coming up soon, hoping they can adjust his meds.

SO sorry to hear about your baby. :( Losing a pet is the most awful feeling, but at least you can cherish your last few days with him.

So sorry to hear about Octane… :-(

:( I’m so sorry to hear that. Dealing with a sick pet that is not going to recover is truly awful. I’ve only been through it twice, but it broke my heart both times.

Just checking your profile after you answered my discussion post. I also have a dog who is like my baby, and it really saddens me to hear of anyone going through something like this. I hope Octane can hang in there a while longer for you to soak up as much love as you can. Remember that when the inevitable happens, as hard as it will be to deal with the loss of his physical presence, the love you shared with each other will have left a permanent mark on you. You will never really be without him. My pup is 7 and healthy, and even so, I tear up at the thought that I’ll lose him someday. Hang in there.

Thanks, Rachel. He’s having some good days, but the second he has a spell, it’s an instant reminder.

Bio

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
