Ron and Hazel's 'Travels with Nuggie' travel blog


Nuggie Howes (2001 - 2019) BORDER= "Nuggie", our 17 year old cocker spaniel, died during the night. She's been in a lot of pain lately, helped with a dog-aspirin in a spoon of ice cream every evening. Nuggie's been sleeping most of the time in the past year, moving around to get food and water and to be helped outside, with eyesight and hearing failing, but still able to smell that steak cooking on the barbeque and letting us know she wanted some.

.

Named in honor of our granddaughter Julia's 4th and golden birthday, a "Nugget", she's been with us since being a pup.

Dogs quickly become part of the family, a loyal member of ours, and she will be missed. Nuggie loved being on guard up on the dashboard of our motorhome as we traveled, even challenging a bull buffalo along the side of the road in Yellowstone Park, protecting us all.
