Monday Memories: The Fiftieth!

February 14th, 2010 · 5 Comments

Cheeks helping with homework!

This is a photo of Cheeks in February 2004. He was my daughter’s guinea pig. Today someone commented on a post that I wrote about him a long time ago and he’s been on my mind ever since. I think about him often and even though we had to have him euthanized in October 2008 I still can’t bring myself to take him out of our blog tagline. Before we got Cheeks I never would have believed that a little rodent could have such personality and would bring such joy to our lives! We still sometimes expect to see him there lounging in his cage when we walk into the kitchen. Also? He was the inspiration for all of those crochet guinea pigs!

What are your memories this week? Go ahead and leave a link to your blog post or photo in Mr. Linky! If you don’t have a blog, tell us about a memory in the comment section. I want to hear from everybody! (If Mr. Linky isn’t working, you can put your link in the comments section.) Please remember to:

  • Leave a link to the specific blog post, not to your general blog address, to make it easier for people to find your memory post.

    Awww, Cheeks is so cute :-) Sorry he’s no longer with you physically, but I’m sure he’ll always be in your heart — and in your blog tagline :-)

    We’ve lost five pets over the last two years — our cats Smokey & Chibbley, our dogs Carbo and Kylie, and my horse Rosa. Rosa is still alive, but I had to sell her. It’s never easy to say good-bye…

    it’s never easy loosing a loved pet… we’ve had a few, too. they still stay close in memory and we have a few traditions we keep to keep their memories fresh.

    i think it’s the unconditional love.
