Another Brew Buddy Loss
« on: March 08, 2010, 08:38:03 AM »
  The Tubercle household lost Mimi, our little Boston female, last week. She succumbed to lung cancer but didn't seem to be in any pain as best we could tell. The passing was quite and peaceful. Mimi was rescued from a puppy mill and hopefully her last 2 years living in luxury made up for some of the previous 7 years as a forced breeder.

RIP....

 As most things in life tragedy brings opportunity and this gave us and opportunity to adopt a shelter dog.

Meet Bug....



Bug is a Boston/Pug mix, hence the name, and he will become Doc's companion (my other crazy Boston buddy) and I will introduce him into the world of basking in the sun while the brew is boiling soon.

RIP Mimi. 

Sorry for your loss tubercle, but congratulations on another rescue.
How old is the Bug?


Bostons really tickle my funny bone.

At least all ones I have met are full of character
and all that snorting, snuffling, and wriggling around just strikes me riotous. :D

My condolences tubercle!  :'(  Losing a close friend is never easy.  I'll hoist one for Mimi when I get home this evening.
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Sorry for your loss. Her last two years were indeed good.

I'm so sorry Tubercle and Mrs.Tubercle this may help or may it hurt but it is so true. I know I do miss Rosa and will miss my daughter Hanna.
