Just over a week ago, my wife Jo and I had to say goodbye to our beloved dog Bonnie. Just shy of her thirteenth birthday she fell victim to a brain tumor which first took her sight and then her life with alarming speed. Willful, sometimes to the point of disobedience, she was the most loving, protective, and intelligent dog that I have ever known. Her passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts and our lives and has left her sister and litter-mate Belle without her lifelong friend and playmate. None of us know how long we will have on this earth, but I take comfort in knowing that when it is my time to go, Bonnie will be waiting for me. Love you always Little Bon.
