Tribute to Zen Master Houdini



We lost our beloved Hou about 2 months ago, and it’s still fresh. I look for him on a regular basis, and it seems impossible that he’s no longer with us.

It feels like he still might be right around the corner.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    (((Hugs))) I’ve been wondering how you’ve been doing. It is such a hard loss. The picture of him in the window shows so much. We still look for Mitten too. I still think he’ll be just around the corner some days….

  2. Such a sweet tribute. I love all these photos, Cheryl. I think the silhouette with his tail sticking out is my favorite. The loss of Houdini is a very hard loss and one you’ll always feel. I know these photos and your many, many memories will provide a lot of comfort though.

    Big hugs,

    You have my sympathy. It’s so difficult to lose a beloved furry friend. Thanks for sharing those lovely pictures. I still cherish the memories of my special Schnauzer.


  4. Oh, I’m hoping it gets better, Carrie, but every stray noise I hear I imagine is Hou.

  5. Thanks so much, Shirley. I’m so glad E got that picture, the windowsill was one of his happy spots.

  6. Thanks so much, Jeanne. There’s nothing quite like the bond with a furry friend!
