Farewell Friend

I have said it before and I’ll say it again, the most difficult part of being a pet blogger is having to say goodbye to our fur friends.
Our good friend and co-host of the Pet Parade, Basil had to leave us on Sunday, September 9, 2018. His devastated family was with him as he gained his wings.
They penned a beautiful farewell to
that I urge you to read.
~ Farewell Basil ~
We love you forever
Join Dash KittenBionic Basil and me for a fun-filled blog hop that will take you around the world. Hop on board any day and remember a new Pet Parade begins each Wednesday. Thanks so much!

  1. I agree... that is the difficult part of blogging... and I wish to be not so far away and I could do more than to write to a friend in need...

  2. One of our dearest of friends, and the most adventuresome and epic of story makers. But I sense maybe the adventures aren't yet over for Basil as there are many more realms to explore than just our own, and I am hoping he will come back and tell us some more tales of his daring do!
