17. That is so hard..

I have Murphy's ashes beside me as I post. Lost him 3 years ago after 15 years of slobber and tail wags. Gotta tell ya what happened though.

We had some special food for Murphy, and had some left after Murphy went to that big hunting ground in the sky. I took the food to the Humane Society and donated it. While I was there I decided to look at the doggies they had, but with no intention of taking one home. Pain was still pretty high from losing Murphy.

Well, then I saw Joey the Jack Russell terrier, and he saw me. That's when the rescue started, that is, when Joey began to rescue me. He was ten years old, had been there a week, and came from a loving home of a person who couldn't keep him for medical reasons.

You can guess how this turned out. Joey is at my feet now, giving me the best look he can come up with that tells me he deserves a treat. I'll give him one in Bibi's honor.

Thanks for sharing your journey. You are seeing a lot of doggie people posting here.
