We lost our dog this past week. :( She would have been 14 in August. She still tried to act like a puppy but was slowing down so much. Sometimes her legs would just give out, poor girl. We'd had her since she was a puppy and the kids have had her for their entire lives-she was definitely a member of the family. She was so good with the kids, always gentle. We miss her so much. Steve buried her in the yard and we are going to make a little cross and plant lots of flowers on her grave. There have been a LOT of tears this week and I'm sure there will be more.
