Goodbye Sweet Rosie

Rosie finally rested around Noon today.  She barked several times this morning and I saw her one back leg running so I hope that meant she was chasing squirrels or running in the field with Lex in her mind.  We buried her under a giant holly in a beautifully dug hole Adam's friend, Gus, dug for us.  He's in the army and says he's dug a lot of holes.  This one was the perfect size for a small coffin, very rectangular with straight edges.  It's what Rosie deserved, a very neat grave.  Thank you Gus.  James planted flowers on her grave and wrote her obituary which makes me laugh and cry.  http://whoisvirginia.blogspot.com/

I miss her.  She was my shadow.  Lex is a bit somber today too.  I wonder what goes through a dog's mind when they lose their littermate.

  2. By the way, I read the obituary. Tell James it was very creative, as we all know, sums him up in one word. :)
