Rage, rage, against the dying of the light!

I lost my sweet doggy friend, neighbor and companion. She lived upstairs with the landlord, but spent most of her time with me. We had lots of nice hikes, shared many meals, hung out and chilled. Her kidneys just shut down. This is a picture from about a year ago, it’s kinda startling to see how chubby I was.  Her head in my dog door was the first thing I ever saw in the mornng (but not yesterday-she didn’t even come down for bacon), and any time I came home.  Love you Tara, I’ll miss you muchtara and irionodo 008

    What a sweet dog.

    There seems to be little that separates death and life. I’m sure your friend died peacefully thinking about going out for piece of your generous bacon.

    Good Luck to you and your dog friend,

    What a pretty dog.

    They really are some of the best friends anyone can have. I’m sorry.

    So sorry about your dog (b/c she was yours in spirit, as much as her owner’s). Sending you virtual hugs.

    Aw, I’m really sorry. She sounds like a sweetheart.

    I laughed out loud at the photo of the head through the catflap! What a lovely sight to greet you in the morning. It is sad to lose a friend and companion. My sympathies.

    What a sweetie! I’m sorry you’ve lost such a good friend. They are in our hearts forever.

    Thanks for the note of encouragement on my blog. I’m going to hang in!
