Bink the Stink

As long as I'm not posting about gardening, I'd like to share a small sadness.


Bink Smith, the fuzzball you may recognize from the background of many a garden photo, passed on this week.

Despite her love for pulling broccoli plants up by the roots and eating only the ripest tomatoes off the vine, Bink was a serene presence in the garden, as everywhere else in our lives.


Before she went, we had time for one more round of "chase the water", a game she loved albeit one I wasn't always happy with, especially when the field of play was a brittle squash vine. And she got one last shot at catching that rat in the shed. No success, but the hunt was always the best part.

She was a good dog and we miss her lots.

It's always harder to lose a pet than you realize it will be. Something I've been thinking about now that the Emma is firmly into her double digits. I'm sorry for your loss of Bink.

A dog's only fault? They don't live as long as we do.

Sorry about your gardening buddy. Bink sounded like a real treat.

Bink was a super-cool doggie who seemed perpetually in motion. We will miss her friendly, fuzzy face.

Our thoughts are with you & Cynthia.
