In Loving Memory
1988 ~ 1997

Our sweet little guy and my very first Yorkie was born on April 23, 1988. He held a very special place in our hearts. Happy Birthday dear Bitterman! This sweet little guy was in front of the Pastor with us when my husband and I were married in 1989. He went everywhere with us and was always a perfect little gentleman. He was so cute and so well behaved that the flight attendants used to let us take him out of his carrier and let him sit on my lap when we were in the air. In one year he logged over 10,000 miles, but alas no frequent flier miles were allowed for dogs. In honor of his birthday, Bitterman is my Show and Tell for this Friday. Thank you Cindy for a chance to show off my sweet little guy. Please visit Cindy at her blog, My Romantic Home and all of the other Show and Tell Participants as well.

  10. Oh how sweet! Treasured pups never truly leave us...they leave their pup prints forever on our hearts! :)

  11. Oh what a sweet, sweet boy. I love his name. He was certainly blessed to have someone care and love him the way that you did ...and still do.

    Your Bentley is such a cutie!

    You have a beautiful blog. Thank you for letting me visit. I will be back.

  12. Hi Susan, What a cute post today for a family friend. I also have a picture of Tallulah the first. In an old frame. I had her for 12 years and she was a birthday gift. She came to me in a shoe box but she was in there for 8 minutes. She was hiding in the garage before they had given her to me. My birthday was the 18. Have a great weekend...Julian

  13. What a little sweetheart Susan. I've always had pets, but dogs are my absolute favourites and we love our labrador Darcy to pieces. When I was younger I had a little yorkie cross called Bonnie and she was gorgeous. It's so hard when they pass away, but we have our memories forever. How lucky for your little man to have found you, he was obviously very well loved, as is your sweet little Bentley. Thanks for sharing, and have a great day. Kerri xx

  14. Oh, Susan, what a sweet, precious little thing. I know how doggies are our children to us. You can bet he's in doggy heaven, because all dogs go to heaven, you know. I just realized that I didn't join as a follower, yet I'm always looking at your blog. Well I took care of that. I hope it's okay.

  15. Hi Susan!
    Pets hold such a special place in our hearts that when they go it is so hard. Enjoy your memories of Bitterman!
    Have a happy weekend
