How I met my nephew, Kat's Mom

In ~ 2007, I met Kat's Mom.....Kit, through Arctic Camsters in Fairbanks, Alaska.  We became immediate friends. Not too long after our meeting, I discovered she had a blog called, Dog Daze.  I became her blog stalker.  I didn't know a thing about blogging; however, she helped find my way to commenting.  She was mom to Zach and Sassy, two yellow labs and Buddy a black Lab.  She called herself Lab Lady.  I cannot count the number of times she suggested that I might enjoy setting up a blog for Madi.  
She was my biggest cheerleader and teacher of all things bloggie.
Kit and Lab Daddy and the 3 Labra-teers traveled across the country to Oregon many times in their wheelie house.  She always sent me beautiful photos from the road.  The humans and the Labra-teers were always smiling. Zach passed about 5 years ago. The dynamic duo Sassy and Buddy, whom you all met via their feline sibling, my Nephew Kat.  Kat graciously agreed to make guest appearances on my blog after
Angel Madi passed about 3 weeks before Sassy passed fall 2018.
 Kit I think you know how much
your encouragement turned Madi's life into that of a WWW Rock Star Diva.


As you all know, as of May 2019, my new obsession is quilting.
 I made a mini memory quilt in honor of Lab Angels Zach, Sassy and Buddy and
the Golden Retriever, Dakota.
The cream fabric is in memory of Zach and Sassy,
The black fabric is in honor of Buddy.
The all the gold on in the fall fabric and top stitching is in memory of Dakota
The back of the quilt is K9 fabric. 
Today I received a precious thank you message from Kat.

Dearest Aunty HiC
Dad just brought in the mail, and Mom is crying again. She says they are happy tears, for the beautiful memory quilt you made and sent to us.
You have always understood Mom’s heart, and for that she is eternally grateful. ❤️
We’re ready to start decorating for Fall now.  🍁

Cool, a package from Aunty HiC!
A beautiful, mini memory quilt; lovingly made by Aunty HiC.

Dearest Nephew Kat, 
Please tell Mom and Dad they are so very, very welcomed for the quilt. It is full of love‼️ Your mom and I are heart sisters for sure we love all critters great and small.
I know how very much your mom loves fall colors

him off the quilt so that she could take a picture.  WTG KAT, Aunty is proud of you)
