My friend and almost constant companion since the day she was born 16 years, 8 months and a few days had to leave this plane of existence at about 5pm July 2. I miss her terribly.

I am sure that doggy had a great life, just by looking at her in that photo.

And I know she is still well loved. . .

RIP Heart.  :(

Wow, almost 17 years, and what a life.  She was one lucky dog.  When you are ready I hope that you will bless another of Gods greatest creations with the opportunity to share your life.

So sorry for your loss. It's always so hard to lose a pet. They are family.

I think I'll get out of the office now and let Katy go run at the dog park.

Four Feet by R. Kipling




 

 



Four-Feet



I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.

Day after day, the whole day through --
Wherever my road inclined --
Four-feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

Now I must go by some other round, --
Which I shall never find --
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.
