A Sad Day


We are currently at Windsor Beach Campround in Lake Havasu State Park. We stayed here for a couple weeks last November and really liked it, so we decided to come back on our way to southern California. We are actually in the same beautiful site on the lake that we were in last year. Too bad Arizona raised the state park rates from last year, so we are paying $18 instead of $15 per night with no hookups, and they aren’t doing the Pay 5 nights, Get 2 free, like last year, either. And we barely have an internet connection.

Unfortunately, Debbie’s dog Elton was having more trouble breathing and getting weaker the past few days, so she had to take him in yesterday and do the inevitable. That is always such a gut wrenching decision for those of us who love our pets like children. At least he is no longer suffering, and we have fond memories of him. We’ll miss you, Elton.The couch will never seem the same without you.



  1. Elton's "Grammy" thanks you for the nice tribute. Such a cute picture.

  2. I'm so sorry for you... I just put down my little fella Aug. 19th so the sadness is fresh. Just breaks your heart...

  3. I am so sorry to hear about Elton. We went through the same thing last August (2009) with our 18 year old Shih Tzu. It is indeed gut wrenching.
    You all are in my thoughts and you deal with the loss of your special friend.

  4. I'm so sad to learn about Elton. I remember him being quite sweet and shy when I met him at Elephant Butte Lake. Please convey my condolences to Debbie.
