Rubbish Tuesday

Today I am joining Rubbish Tuesday....
 

this is just my kinda fun....
 

everyone knows I like rusty.....dusty...and old...
which includes my Hubby (wink wink)....

today is a hard day for our family....
Nolan...our schnauzer has crossed the rainbow bridge...
he has been a member of our family for 12 years...
 

he became diabetic 3 or 4 years ago...
had bouts with his pancreas...
his teeth had started falling out...
and he was blind....
still he was a trouper...
a true Sergeant...
which is his official name...
Sergeant Nolan...
because he marched around like a drill seargeant...
we were fortunate to have a baby visitor today...
to keep our minds off of it...
Hotrod is loving the baby around...
he loves babies...

I'm so sorry about Nolan. Our lab, Willie, crossed last year. It was one of the worst days of our lives. Love your rusty, dusty and had to chuckle at the Hubby remark. I like the new blue against the old rusty. Thanks for linking up!

I am so sorry to hear about Nolan. I lost my little schnauzer in Feb. and another schnauzer a couple of years ago. So very hard to lose them. Hang in there.

Really sorry to hear about Nolan - animals are such a part of the family, it's so hard to let them go.

I love the bejewling in the first photo.

Sorry about Nolan. I had a diabetic cat for several years until he too passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. Its never easy losing a beloved family member.
