Going … Going … Gone!

I sold my Jeep over the weekend.  The practical part of me is saying "Great, one less vehicle to maintain and take care of."  The other part of me feels bittersweet.  It was because of this, that I got the Jeep to begin with:

Scan0148

(Daisy, summer 1994) and

Zachary LR
Zachary, (April 5, 2008 while spring cleaning the patio). These guys LOVED to swim, and it was my idea to be able to take them up to the Bay, let them swim and then bring them home in the Jeep.  They couldn't mess anything up in the Jeep.

Things didn't work out quite the way I had planned.  I got the Jeep in December 2004, and Daisy passed away very unexpectedly on January 15, 2005.

So, it was just Zachary and I, which was fine, until he kept getting skin infections and the vet informed me that swimming in the Bay was aggravating his skin, and referred me to a dermatology vet, who confirmed that Zachary had really bad allergies, so much so that I had to begin giving him twice weekly injections.  The vet also said to keep him out of the Bay 🙁

So, it is on to a new chapter (which included a lot of clearing out, reorganizing, a trip to Ikea, and reflection on what Memorial Day really means).

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

    Oh! So sad to hear that. Dogs are really our best friends, and losing them make us lose almost half of our lives. And as for your jeep, why did you sell them? That looks great and sporty. Perfect for any kind of adventure.

    Thanks for your response to my post. I sold the Jeep because I just didn’t drive it very much, especially after the dogs were gone. It’s great driving it around in the summer, but not at all in the winter (although it did have 4-wheel drive). Since it was a 1994, 17 years old, a lot of upkeep was also required. I have another car that I drive for everyday.
