Dedicated to Shila and Patton

Shila and Patton, my children, my protectors, my teachers, my dogs, my heart. Who taught me ethics and values no people ever had (save my grandmother). They taught me to know love, loyalty, devotion, courage and heart, to know them without limits and to have them without condition.

I would not be the person that I am today had I not been blessed by those two tremendous spirits.

When I close my eyes, I can still feel you by my side,
and you will always SHINE INSIDE!

Thank you so much!

What a beautiful sentiment- and you are right- these dogs are definitely spirits that teach us and touch our lives through their special bond that they have with us- and in the end, I think it is really they that take care of us. It is a beautiful thing that they give us- never ending love, and hope that life is filled with things as beautiful as they have shown us.
