I'm really sorry to read the news, Spike. I fully understand how important our best friends are to all of us, and I send you and Esme's family my condolences.
That's a fantastic picture of a striking dog! I'm sure it was the right decision, and now she can run with all the pups again!
~ who patiently waits for you and is always happy to see you come home... regardless the time of day and what condition you are in
~who always make time for you
~ who will always be by your side and knows when to leave you alone and keep a steady protective eye over you
~ who no matter what happens will go all the way for you regardless of whether you are right or wrong
the memory will live on if you allow it. And more blessed is the person who has such a companion in the homo sapien species. That I am not.. My dog died when I was young. This post trigger the old forgotten sweet memories..
The first morning is pretty hard.
I really appreciate all of the kind words and thoughts, guys. I have been working on an "urn" in black walnut that will house her and her dearly beloved departed brother, so she will never be far.
