Lena - A Tribute

Lena waits for her mom to come home...

Lena and Chassity

Mother's Day was hard this year for those of us who lost furbabies recently. Lena was a tough old broad of a puggy girl, and had about every illness and challenge you could imagine. But she had a strong spirit and was absolutely adored by her mom, Chassity. Lena went to the Bridge shortly before my own Winnie Wiggles arrived there a few months ago. Lena was one of the best loved pugs I have ever had the honor of knowing, and her fierce personality and will to live is a testament to the love she received from her mom, Chassity.

Chassity has written some beautiful tributes to Lena on her dogster page. The kind of love Chassity and Lena shared was bigger than life, and it will not be dimmed in the least by the distance between them now. My heart goes out to you Chassity. I miss her, too.

King's Road is a painting from a street scene in Fredericksburg, Texas. Fredericksburg is 70 miles west of Austin and was founded in the 1840s as a German Settlement. It's our favorite place to have a pug-friendly family vacation.
