Farewell, Old Friend

"Every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." ~~Author Unknown~~
I've had a very busy life. Every since I was a pup I've had lots of work to do.
I've learned lots of lots of things to take care of my family.

There were children to keep warm.....
The whole yard to patrol.....



Friends to make......
Dinner to catch.....
Dinner to eat.....
Smiles to capture.....
Children to keep clean.

Under my watchful care children flourished, a family was kept safe, and a home was filled with my love.

Indy - (Gunmettle's Independence Day) 5/4/98-7/13/11.
You will be loved and remembered forever. Well done, faithful friend.

I am so sorry about your beautiful dog! It is painful when one of our four legged family members passes on isn't it?
