our family lost our faithful
best friend - our dog 'Summer" yesterday (July 2)

he was a little over 13 years old
and his legs or hips gave out and  he suffered very little once we knew he could
no longer get up and stand or walk
("have a well deserved sleep my friend"!)

we are sad...
sad... sad.... to lose this dog.....(big big sniffs!)

Things We can Learn from a Dog
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
Allow the experience of fresh air &
the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
Take naps & stretch before rising.
Run, romp & play daily.
Eat with gusto & enthusiasm.
Be Loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent,
sit close by & nuzzle them gently.
Thrive on attention & let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On hot days, drink lots of water & lay under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around & wag your entire body.
No matter how often you're scolded,
don't buy into the guilt thing & pout...
run right back & make friends.
Bond with your pack.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Sending you hugs!
