So Today would have been my mom's 68th birthday. So I have been doing everything I can to stay busy today, to keep my mind off it. My mom loved animals - she had a dog named Misty (a Chihuahua)and when Misty died we got our cat Putter, who had babies, including Mog who we kept, and then we got a beagle, Benji. I wanted to post pictures of her with them (since this is generally a blog devoted to animal posts) but I could only find one of her with Misty - my dad spent most of his pitcure taking time on me I guess. i know there are others of her with Misty somewhere but I can't find them. There are pictures of her but there just aren't animals in them, in fact most of the animal pictures are just them, no people. Anyway in honor of my mom's birthday, here is a picture of her with Misty, in front of a snow-Misty she built. It was taken around December of 1969, which is the year my parents got married, and 2 years before I was born, so I am not in the picture. I wil be back to my regular cat blogs tomorrow, including an update on Barney's vet trip today.
