Mimsy and Puzzle

She knew two things absolutely:

Mimsy and Santa Jim

1.  She is a good dog.

2.  We love her.

Always.

Tonight, we cry.

Tomorrow, we will plant an apple tree for her.

It's what we do here.

  2. Oh no! I'm so sorry...no matter what- it's always too soon. What a beautiful girl she was, and one of the most photogenic dogs I've ever seen. Hugs.

  5. I'm so sorry. Losing a dog is heart-breaking and the wound never really heals. One of my dogs has been gone for three years and some nights I swear I can still feel him sleeping next to my leg. It looks like you have lots of wonderful memories and pictures, though, and I hope the apple tree you plan in Mimsy's memory grows big and strong:)

    Run free, Mimsy.

  11. I'm so sorry. Loosing a beloved pet is never easy but it's good she knew she was good and she was loved. Planting a tree is a wonderful idea.
