The death of a loved dog!
I am not a great Facebook user, more for the benefit of my blog than anything else.
But I couldn’t help seeing an entry from Kim Spann. This is what she wrote:
Today I lost one of the greatest dogs I’ve ever known. My constant companion, protector and friend. I will miss her always but am blessed to have had her in my life for 8 years.
Well over two hundred people clicked ‘Like’ and when I was writing this post (about 2.30 pm on the 5th) there were 179 comments; all of them wonderful.
I, in turn, offered to write a small tribute, and it now follows.
Dogs are special. Special beyond words.
They have been with us humans for thousands of years. They have played with us. They have stayed by our side. They have rescued us. And much more.
They do not live long enough but even in their death do we share precious times and precious memories.
So … goodbye you darling creature. I love you!
As Kim said: “My constant companion, protector and friend.”
