Goodbye Old Friend

I had some sad news today from my mom. Our family dog, Rudy, passed away this evening. He was a wonderful dog and has been my friend since we first brought him home when I was seven. He lived to the ripe old age of seventeen, which is really old for a doggy. I was so blessed to be able to see him one last time this weekend. I went home to visit my family and I promise I will post more pictures of my trip later. Here is my last day with Rudy. God Bless. I will sure miss you buddy.lauren_visit_004

Here we are cuddly on the back porch Monday morning before I left.

Oh, that makes me sad. I, too, am a great dog lover and have also gone through pet losses. Blessings to you at this time.

I was so sad when our family dog died. I hope the happy memories of time spent together comfort you! Doggies really are the best friends!
