Mimsy and Puzzle

She knew two things absolutely:

Mimsy and Santa Jim

1.  She is a good dog.

2.  We love her.


Supervising barn chores, 2013

Tonight, we cry.

Tomorrow, we will plant an apple tree for her.

It's what we do here.


  1. Aarene, you and I do not know each other, but I am very sorry for your loss..


  2. Oh no! I'm so 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.

  3. So sorry, Aarene. Your pictures are beautiful. An apple tree is an excellent idea. Wishing you all peace and sparkling memories.

  4. My heart goes out to you and Santa Jim. Mimsy had a good life surrounded by love.

  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:)

  6. I am so very sorry for your loss, and so very glad Mimsy had you to love her for so much of her life. She has taken a piece of your heart, and of your readers' hearts too.
    Run free, Mimsy.

  7. Thinking of you and your good dog.

  8. Your heartfelt words made me cry too. Thank you for loving Mimsy every moment, she knew it, and will always be in your heart. So sorry

  9. Your heartfelt words made me cry too. Thank you for loving Mimsy every moment, she knew it, and will always be in your heart. So sorry

  10. I'm so very sorry. Mimsy was a beautiful girl and she'll live on in your memories and heart. RIP 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.

  12. i'm crying with you aarene. you shouldn't have to go thru this again so soon.

  13. Awww, so sorry for your loss. :-( What a beautiful dog - looks like you have lots of great pictures and memories of her.

  14. I'm so sorry for your loss. Our dear pets are never with us long enough. She had a wonderful home with you and your family.


  15. So, so sorry... :(
    I agree with CG, it is always too soon..
