We lost this beautiful boy this summer. I miss him so much! I really missed him at pie making time while getting ready for Christmas.
He would always come running if he heard us in the fruit drawer in the refrigerator...because we might be getting an apple out. I'm not sure how he knew the difference between the fruit drawer and the vegetable drawer, but he did. He LOVED apples! I never ate an apple by myself. I always shared chunks of it with him...even if that meant he was drooling all over my floor.
When I would make apple pies, he would lay right next to where I was working. He knew when I was finished peeling and cutting the apples that he was in for a treat. It was sad to look at the spot where he would lay while I was making pies and not see him there.
