Honoring Biscuit: Our Last Trip Together
“The journey of life is sweeter when traveled with a dog.” ~Unknown
Today marks ten months since our precious Biscuit passed away. May was a very special month last year because we took Biscuit on our last trip together (although, at the time, we did not know it was going to be our last trip together) to Vermont to visit the Orvis Flagship store where he was the Orvis Cover Dog Winner and represented the Orvis Petfinder Commitment, supporting dog rescue. We had a wonderful time together on this trip, and we are so happy and grateful that we were able to Vermont together before Biscuit got too sick to travel. I remember how happy Biscuit was going to Orvis, King Arthur Flour, the Vermont County Store, going atop Mount Equinox together, and going shopping together in downtown Manchester (Biscuit went in all the stores with us)! Biscuit was so happy and so were we! It rained during our trip, but we extended our trip and we therefore had a few days of gorgeous weather, and we were able to have a few dinners at restaurants, sitting on outdoor patios together, as Manchester is very dog friendly! On the rainy evenings, we ordered food from restaurants to bring back to the hotel so that we could eat with Biscuit and so that he would not be left alone. I also remember on this trip each night in the hotel, Biscuit wanted to sleep with us in the bed, which was not like Biscuit who typically always slept on his bed on the floor on my side of the bed. Maybe Biscuit knew that was going to be his last trip together. Biscuit came so far, and he made great strides, in a short amount of time. He was so handsome and he was full of life. We are truly grateful for our precious little Biscuit who changed and enriched our lives forever.
