In Memory of Seb: The Biggest Food Lover Ever
I pulled away from posting this past week. I needed a little break after having lost my best friend and the biggest food lover I know. Yes, even more than myself.
I could talk for days and days about Seb. This magnificent creature came into my life 9 years ago when he was 5. Sadly, at his ripe old age of 14, Seb passed away peacefully in our arms last Monday.
I could always count on him to clean up my spilled messes, eat the leftovers I possibly couldn't, and listen to me moan when I had over eaten. I did my best not to feed him table scraps, but that look in his eyes just melted my heart. He knew that eventually I would cave in. And I often did. He was by my side always, and wore his heart on his sleeve – nothing to hide. And he appreciated every second life gave him – I figure that's why he held on so long.
I want to thank all our dinner guests for accepting Seb and offering him pets as he drooled on your plate, gave you that sad stare or quickly stole some of your food when you turned your head. This thank you is also extended to those who let us into your home and accepted the same
Seb was a very active dog with a huge appetite, and an even bigger heart. It's been and will continue to be lonely without you bud! But we know you'll be there, sitting patiently by the table every time we sit down to eat. I may even accidentally drop some food on the floor – so keep your eyes open for it!
If I had ever been brought to this earth as a dog, I would have been Seb. Love for food was the biggest thing we had in common. This post is to share in his memory. He was always sniffing in the background when we were taking food shots. Here are a few.
