I threw out all of Louise’s sweaters and coats today (after 12 years she had a lot). I also got rid of Sofie and Louise’s yellow slicker raincoats too – I loved those (I put one in the thrift store recycle bag, but I don’t know if they will use it). The little dogs have no use for that stuff. The shelters don’t want the used coats or leashes, collars, and harnesses. And they don’t want the beds either, I checked. I have all these big dog beds that I can’t seem to just toss. Last Christmas I got Lulu this beautiful orthopedic one that she loved. So it is sitting against the wall of my office until I can figure out where it should go.
And what do you do with raised feeding dishes? No one wants them. Many of the leashes and collars had their names and my phone number on them so they went in the trash. My heart is just aching. I kept a few things to see if I could make coats for the littles, or maybe because I just couldn’t part with it all yet.
The picture is Louise and Sofie in 2018. Gosh, I miss those goofballs.
