          She's the one in the middle. They were waiting for meat as I trimmed something or other. The other two left sooner, but are equally missed!

              The heart is right to cry,
              when even the smallest drop of light is taken away,
              when even the smallest drop of love goes cold.

              My condolences.

                  EdF, I'm so sorry. We had to put down one of our dogs this afternoon, so I know what you're feeling. It looks like she and all your dogs were well loved, and our family is sending good thoughts to yours.

                      I'll send up a little prayer tonight for my old Friend Shang Hai Corbett to be looking for her and show her around up there.

                        It can only help knowing she was comfortable and loved.
                        Peace be with you and your family my brother. 🙏
