Dear Bishop…You Will Be Missed

He was the first thing we committed to, outside of each other, in our relationship. We had a dog before we had a house, got married, started our family. He’s been there with us for all of it.

He played his part in helping us become parents. ^ was our profile picture when Sky’s birth mother picked us.

14 years of adventure with him. He’s set a pretty high standard for any dog we bring into our life, and it’s going to be strange moving on without him.

 He was happiest snuggling on the floor with anyone, but mostly with Mark.

My absolute favorite pic of those two, so much love. 

Easily the best dog a little girl could have. He’s been her best bud from day one, even though we have another dog now, it’s always been Bishop for her. He has been her playmate, partner in crime, and has been dressed up/ridden like a horse/jumped on/fed all sorts of tot snacks/been chased and drug all over the yard, roped like a cow, and put up with every second of it. 
R.I.P. Bishop, I’m sad your gone, but thankful you are no longer in pain.  

Puppy Love

Sky has so much love in her heart that these hugs happen all the time.  Even when Bishop needs a break sometimes.


Those two are inseparable.  Bishop loves Sky because she feeds him, and Sky loves Bishop because he puts up with all her rough and tumble love.  I love hearing her shriek in delight because Bishop is “chasing” her (he really is just following her because he thinks she has food in her hands) or running around the yard with her letting her chase him.

Speaking of puppy love Mark and I fell hard for some puppies, so tempting. 

Sky Pics!

I know enough running talk already, but just a little bit more before I post some Sky pics. 

Ran with the Stroller Group this morning and felt pretty darn amazing!  My legs felt good, the knee hurt a little until I warmed up then it was all good.  Finish the last mile walking to accommodate everyone, and that was probably perfect so as not to overdue it.  So looking forward to getting a run in this weekend! 

Oh, speaking of pics you can now follow me on Instagram if you would like…you need an account though.  If you don’t want to bother most pics posted there will likely end up on the blog or my fb page anyway.  Here is the link if you are interested:

Ok, now for a few Sky pics…

Sharing with her bestie!

She LOVES when Bishop is paying attention to her, even if he wants her snack.

Mark’s socks look cute on her even with the crazy hair.  Sometimes a girl just has to run around like a wild child!
