This is my sweet Happy about a year ago. She was on the outside porch resting. I am sure she had been chasing squirrels or birds or something. She was very territorial. I miss her so much. I am beginning to stop expecting her to run out when I come home. She was the BEST! I am in the process of making a small scrapbook about our 4 (3 cats and Happy) animals. Happy was put to sleep about 6 weeks ago. She has kidney failure. I guess I had forgotten how much you can grieve for a dog.
We called her by many nicknames. My favorite was NOAA weather dog. She would let us know if it thundered in a five county area. When it rained and thundered the other night, I thought of how upset she would have been. She was terrified of thunder.
We also called her "chicken". She was a big dog but afraid of her own shadow. I often teased her that the dog kingdom wanted their title back, and she would have to be changed to the chicken kingdom. She was such a baby. She was almost twelve years old and served us well. We miss her!
