The passing of our sweet Chippy

Chippy passed away on Aug 2, 2018.  She had been sick for a couple of days.  Her eyes got glassy, and her little body got bloated.  We were watching her and planned on take her to the vet soon.  The sweet thing passed away in the night.  We were all heartbroken.  She was our first…

Summer recap

It’s pretty much already been the best summer ever.  But, after we got home from London and Yellowstone, we still had some living to do!
