Honoring Biscuit: Biscuit and Me
“The love that flows through your heart purifies not only your own spirit, but the love you share with others.” ~Caroline Myss
Tomorrow Biscuit will be gone for two months. We miss Biscuit very much. Things just are not the same without him. It feels like an eternity since we last saw him. Doug and I think about Biscuit each day, and we feel so lucky that he was in our lives.
Today is a special day for Doug and I — if all goes as planned, we are closing on our new home today. However, we wish that Biscuit was here with us to share this moment with us. Biscuit came to the closing with us when we sold our former home back in November; in December, Biscuit was with us when we executed a contract with the builder to build our home; and this spring, Biscuit accompanied us to our pre-construciton meeting with the builder. Fortunately, we have a photo of us in front of our lot with our little Biscuit along with countless photographs of Biscuit at the new home construction site. We are taking a photograph of Biscuit to closing with us — we know that he will be there in spirit. After all, Biscuit went every weekend with us to the home construction site. I think he knew that we were building a home for all of us. Even though Biscuit will not physically be with us in the new home, our new home will be adorned with his photographs.
Shown below are a few self-portraits of Biscuit and me atop Mount Equinox on the last day of our trip to Vermont. Doug and I are very grateful that we made it to the Orvis Flagship store in Vermont with Biscuit. Biscuit represented the Orvis Petfinder Commitment, supporting and promoting dog rescue. There are so many dogs who need a second chance, and Biscuit’s story is living proof of this sentiment. Vermont was our last trip with Biscuit before he became sick. Biscuit had such a wonderful time as did we! We are grateful for our many trips and adventures together.
