This post has been a long time coming.
For those who don’t know the origin of my blog name Bimble and Pimble refer to the two doggo loves of my life, Button T. Wuzzle, Esq. and Popsicle O’Snuffle. When I started on this sewing journey back in 2011 and wanted to throw my escapades out into the ether a blog name just wouldn’t come to me. In frustration, I looked down at my two constant companions and decided to name it after them. So Bimble + Pimble was born and it was a lovely reminder of my little buddies each time I sewed. I mean, apart from them sleeping on/at my feet or demanding we play ball rather than sew…
I think it is pretty obvious where this narrative is going, but after months of slow health decline and at 14 and 12 years of age respectively, my girls crossed the rainbow bridge in July and September. Losing them so close together has been devastating but it makes sense in an odd way that Poppy just couldn’t be without Button. They lived long and joyful lives and were comfortable and happy until the very end.
Rather than dwell on the sadness of their passing, I wanted to take up a small slice of the internet to share a couple of my favourite photos of the girls doing what they did best. Vale Bimble and Pimble.
I’m so happy to see their smiling faces again. I’m sure they’re enjoying life beyond the rainbow bridge. What a wonderful life you gave them. They never stay with us long enough. <3

Aww, they are adorable and I’m glad you got to enjoy your time with them.

I’m so sorry to hear of their passing. Pets bring such joy to our lives, but the heartbreaking thing is that they leave us before we leave them in most cases. Clearly Bimble and Pimble had a wonderful time with you and I know they are looking down at you from Dog Heaven with wagging tails.

I’m so sorry. They leave such a big hole when they go.
What a lovely tribute post Amanda. My little cocker spaniel is sooo difficult to photograph- I wish that she’d stay still like Poppy! Your photos are lovely keepsakes x

Your puppies were so cute. You guys were lucky to have each other. It’s so sad that we don’t have the same lifespan as our pets. Often times they are our most loyal and faithful companions. <3

They look like two amazing characters! I’m sorry for your loss. Animals can be such a major part of our lives.
I’m so sorry! It’s awful when our pets go, but they will still live on in your blog name (my blog is named after my first cat). And those wee faces!! What lovely photos.
Net gain universe, what sweet little faces. I’m sure they loved their time with you! <3
Aw, Amanda! Just seeing this post and so sorry for your loss. They sure looked like they were loved to the fullest. Sending hugs across the miles. Thanks for being such a good fur mommy. ❤️
