in my family, our dogs & cats are part of the family. and when we lose one of them, we grieve. there are no funerals or obituaries for our beloved animal companions, so i try to pay tribute here on my blog.
here's one of the first photos i took of precious back in 2009. she had the funniest habit of showing her teeth when she first met us.
my mother-in-law nancy adopted precious from one of her elderly patients who had passed away. precious was an older gal, and as we know it's hard finding senior dogs a home. but nancy took her in and they became best pals.
precious was devoted to nancy. she would follow her everywhere. she'd watch her with a look of pure love. nancy gave her a wonderful home & they had 4 great years together. car rides & cats to hang out with, a yard with a garden & a pond. precious lived the good life!
losing a beloved animal companion is heart breaking. all you can do is remember the good times. and someday be ready to let another dog (or cat or even a bird) into your heart.
