Kratos the Giant

This summer has been an interesting one for sure. Without my constant shadow following me around I’ve been a bit lost and not my usual self. It was nearly two months ago – about a month after Bosco’s passing – that Brian came to the conclusion that ‘Holly’s aren’t meant to not have dogs in their lives.’ So the search began and a tiny little black Muppet looking puppy melted our hearts…
img_6317On my way to the airport to pick up a special package, I stopped by the airport Travel Bug Hotel to drop off Bosco’s collar, which is now a trackable and movable game piece for geocaching. I made sure to get there early so I could take my time to process what I was about to do. I sat alone in the small patch of woods with tears flowing out my eyes as I dropped my long time companions collar into the green ammo can. No attempt was made to stop the salty stream that was flowing down my cheeks. When my nerves had finally calmed I closed the lid and returned to the Jeep. My next destination was drastically going to change our lives, but we were ready.

Time for a new adventure to start…
