National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day (Photo from Travels with Choppy Blog)
I love everyone in Blogville but Choppy the dog was a particular favorite and I was stunned today to read he suddenly went to the Bridge shortly following surgery for a torn CCL and meniscus. He was only 11.
I first met his Mom Sarah through social media when I lived in Indianpolis and she lived in the area working as a attorney. We both supported the same dog rescue organization and started to chat.
Choppy was an amazing dog - he went with her everywhere, hiking and walking all over the United States, including Alaska (Choppy's Mom is a Travel Writer of multiple books). When Sarah got married and moved North, North to Wisconsin, Choppy still spent time walking but at home, he was known for wearing silly costumes (which he LOVED to don) and balancing an assortment of things on his head while he annoyed his nemesis Schooner the cat.
He also is the star of a book of corny dog jokes on Amazon which makes me laugh every time I pick it up.
You are so going to be missed Choppy. https://travelswithchoppy.com/
