Rest in Peace, Rita... A majestic old girl.

I've gone through the loss of a beloved dog too many times, and yet, would not want to live one year of my life without canine companionship. My brother-in-law says that every time you get a new pet. it's just another heartbreak waiting to happen.

Yes, that's true. And I could have missed the pain, but then I would have missed the dance. What our dogs give to us is special beyond words. And each one is unique:

"A family dog is not replaceable like a worn-out coat or a set of tires. Each new pup becomes his own dog, and none is repeated. I am many dogs old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded, but not replaced one another." Irving Townsend

Godspeed, Rita!

"Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives."
