… would have been Auggie’s 15th birthday.

It’s all about the pillows

Let me re-introduce myself.  I’m Maezi, Auggie’s sister.  You may remember me from such famous posts as “Isn’t She Lovely?”, August, 2011 & many more.   Augster always enjoyed doing the limerick thing, blogging,  running around the agility jumps, exploring the yard, giving kisses.  He was my playmate, mentor, care-taker & sometimes, he was the bane of my existence, because, you know what?  Sometimes he actually tattled!   Then I would have to summon all my “puppy-dog eyes” skills to appear innocent.   Not that that worked very often.

Mostly, he was just fun to hang out with.  We spent a lot of time snuggling, tugging on toys.  I’m reminiscing about how closely intertwined our lives are/were, but I can’t bring myself to sit on his ottoman alone & am reminded just how much has transpired since he wrote his last post.  I’ll fill in some of the blanks later, although I’m not sure I can “poet-ize” as well as he did.  Maybe I’ll try my paw at some rhyming couplets.  But for right now, I just want to say, “Happy Birthday, Auggie.  I miss chewing on your hair.”
