I did not want Mom and Dad to get you and Chief 14 years ago, but you two soon won everybody over with your personalities. Yes, you two were litter mates and only spent two nights ever without each other (only when he had foot surgery and you had ear surgery).
By the way, Chiefy is grieving you like I am. I don't know if he can stand it without you. After momma died you both grieved, but you took it a bit harder, you always sat at her feet and Chief not too far away. Then three years ago, when Daddy passed, you too had a big adjustment. You came to live with me, in a smaller place and littler yard, but you two soon adjusted and boy did we ever enjoy you.
Thanks for being such a ham about all the pictures taken of you and Chief. You and Chief are black lab mixes, but the lab part outweighs whatever the other is. Even with the age on you, your coat sure was pretty. I'd been praying for weeks that God would give me discernment on when it was time to let you go, since you both have such joint issues and this past year struggled so much.
Well, he answered my prayer. He let you go in your sleep two nights ago. I hope you like the place in the backyard by the fence, since you and Chief loved to wallow in my day lilies anyways.
You've been a good dog and I love you and miss you terribly and so does Chief. Wherever your spirit is, may it be running through day lilies and creek beds.
Mom and Chief
