Dear Mama:

I watched you be born and picked you out of the whole bunch. Never knowing you would take my heart. I will never forget how mean you were (just like your mom). You were the Alpha dog that kept the other 4 dogs in line. Even after your bilateral ACL replacements you marched around, like " No big deal boys, I am woman, hear me roar!" Nothing brought you down!

I look out the window, expecting to see you in the backyard, hopping around trying to keep up with the other dogs and making sure they were not acting out of place, otherwise you would let them know.

I didn't know you would be taken away from us on 1-4-2011 unexpectedly. I know everyone says you were old (almost 11) and lived a great life, but that doesn't stop the pain I feel inside my heart.

I washed your blanket and placed it where you always sat. Your spirit will always and forever be with us.

Love you and miss you, mom
