One of our guests at the Bed & Breakfast once declared me to be “a collector of both Boston Terriers and their likenesses” – a description which still makes me chuckle. My husband and I have had six much-loved Bostons over the years – and we do indeed have quite a few pieces of Boston Terrier memorabilia, many of them kindly given to us by guests fond of our dogs.
Bill and I have some good friends who also are Boston Terrier parents. Knowing that I am a gardener, these friends have very thoughtfully given me flowers to plant as living memorials to several of our canine children who have passed over the years. One of theses is a daylily named “Punk” given in memory of Ginger. (“Punk” was one of several affectionate nicknames that we had for Gingie because she was always ready to turn anything into a game.)
Ginger passed away two years ago at seventeen years of age. She brought us tremendous happiness in her lifetime. This is the first time that Punk has bloomed. So I wanted to share a remembrance of Ginger and photos of her tribute flower which I tend with affection as I remember our punky Ging.
Have a lovely weekend!
Beautiful flowers and tribute to your little guy. 🙂
Ginger was a very special dog. She was great at catching a Frisbee and was a good companion for Bill at work. She was greatly missed.
Thanks for the note. Have a great weekend!
Absolutely beautiful. I remember Ginger when I came to interview at Kansas State. She was a great and loving dog. The flower is gorgeous and perfectly matches Ginger’s soul!
Thank you for your kind note. I am glad to have now discovered your blog!
A beautiful flower for a beautiful soul. I remember when you posted her passing – doesn’t seem that long ago.
Thanks, Ann. Have a great weekend!
Both beautiful! What an extraordinary colour that day lily is. Lovely post Laurie.
Thank you. The flower is striking. Have a wonderful weekend!
Ah very nice Laurie.
Thank you. Have a wonderful weekend!
