Thoughts of Newman

Where it all began… (I think there is a song that starts out with these words)

Just a little tyke

I was born in Florida. My mom picked me and my sister Beatrice to come live with her in Atlanta. Mom said that Beatrice and I were very stubborn when we were little. She said it was a very long 7 months to get us potty trained. Heck, it did not seem that long??

I loved my sister then
I always was a snuggler
Look at my cute butt!
And NO, I am not kissing my sister
Us and mom
Can we come I yet?

Then mom moved us to this place called Colorado. This was a great place to live because I realized I loved the snow!

Snow is yummy

My mom would make snowballs and throw them up in the air and I would catch them! Eating some snow was awesome. Just not the yellow snow.

We had a great yard to play in when we moved to Colorado. My sister and I had some good memories except for the ones when we would really fight.

Tuff dog!
I am pondering

Then mom said we are making a life change. Not sure what that really meant but I know that my sister went to live with Alicia because we just could not get along. And we moved to a new place called an apartment. All I know is that I lost my backyard and now have to go up and down these stairs just to go to the bathroom!

Laying on the bed pillows
Love a good stuffed animal
Here we are going on a walk and looking good!
Mom and I having some couch tine

Then this is when I met ManToy!

ManToy lived in Brush. So I would get to spend weekends out in the country and I met my future brother from a different mother.

This is when we could get on the couch!
Love this guy

Then mom bought this great house in Fort Morgan and I had a backyard again! And learned what chickens were.

We got to go to the park and use the flip it!
Another killing in the works!
Cassie finally giving me some love
I loved laying out in the sun with my mom
Hello, can I get some attention here!

Shiloh and I did lots of snuggling.

Then mom and Mantoy decided to get a camper and hit the road. Shiloh and I did not like having to ride in that trailer. 😂

But it was comfy at night sleeping

Then we made it to Washington. It was tough at first because there was no grass to do my duty on. But eventually I figured out that you just went into the bushes. Ha ha ha

Looking good in my sweater!

They kept talking about a yurt. I had no clue what it was but wanted to help.

Lots of fun times hanging around the yurt.

This is my glamour shot
Not sure why they said I look like a pig.

Shiloh and I would ride in the truck and take a ferry to Seattle to see Papa and Nana.

Mom found creative ways to give me a bath to keep me clean in all this dirt.

Really???
Blue is a good color for me

Then one day mom said I had a bucket list. I asked what that was. She told me I wanted to go to the beach! So we went to the beach.

This is my distinguished look

My mom loved taking pictures of me. She said I always I either looked sad or I was a deep thinker. 🤣

I wonder what we are having for dinner
Shiloh farted!
Is it lunchtime?
It has been a tough day
Mom, can I have some popcorn?

I have had the best life a bulldog could ask for! My mom and ManToy gave me lots of love. This is my last post on my mom’s blog. I died peacefully in my mom’s lap at home on Saturday, April 25th. I am now in doggie heaven chasing the red light and tormenting my sister!

Signing off… ❤️🌈

  5. What a fabulous tribute to Newman. As I read it, I laughed and I cried! He was such a funny fellow and so lovable. You were a great Mom – he had a good life- we will miss him, his ugly yet handsome mug, his sharing the bed with Shilo and most of all, his “thoughts!”

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. This was a lovely post, which made me smile until the end when I realised that your lovely bulldog had passed. This is heartbreaking. It looks like the two of you had a nice life together.
