A Visit to Bubbling Well

 Moving right along to January 2017... (I know, I know, I'm so behind on this) How do I even start out a post like this?  -sigh-  While we were on our vacation to Oklahoma for Christmas, we got a difficult phone call from my mother-in-law, who was back home dog-sitting for us.  Our female Irish setter, Mari, had decided that December 28 was her last day.  She had lived an incredibly long life, so we were kind of expecting it, but hoping that she would hang on until we got back to say goodbye.  But life threw us a different plan.  So here are some photos of her final resting place, Bubbling Well Pet Memorial Park up in beautiful Napa, California.

This adorable statue is what you see upon driving into the park (though I captured it as we were leaving)

Just a view of the pathway walking up to the main tribute area.

Beautiful words, needed to see at this time 💖

The main memorial area that held cards for all the pets buried here.

More encouraging words during a difficult time.

Walking further along the pathways in the park.

Just capturing a closer view of the wall of this pathway.

Loved this view of the shadows in the grass...

...and this one as well!

Well, that was it.  I love that she's in such a beautiful place.  We have since lost both of her playmates that grew up with her as a constant in their lives, and they are also resting in this place with her, which gives me comfort to know that they are back together again.  They will all forever be missed.
