The Bitter with the SweetThis summer has been all sweetness and light with the birth of my niece. But life has a way of tossing you a curve ball, and that pitch was thrown last week when my sister's sweet doggy Bugsy died at age 15. He was in kidney failure and fell ill the day after my mom flew home to Michigan. Last week was a rough week, and this one is, too.
I gave a 12-week-old Bugsy to my sister as a birthday present when she turned 25 in 1993. She turned 40 on July 22, and Bugsy passed on August 1, 2008. He was a beloved member of our family, and he is sorely missed by all. If you know my sister, drop her a line. She's grieving hard.
