This Little Dog…

This little dog taught me to always appreciate a warm pillow & blanket.

This little dog taught me that pasta and chicken are the very best dinner.

This little dog taught me that colorful sweaters are fun in the winter time.

This little dog taught me that a few gray hairs can be cute.

This little dog taught me that sitting quietly with your pals in the sunshine is a great way to spend the afternoon.

This little dog taught me to always be excited to see the ones you love.

This little dog taught me that accepting love is as important as giving love.

This little dog taught me to always give a kiss and a hug good night because you never know when it will be your last time to say I love you to someone who is very special and plays an important role in your life.

This little dog’s name was Aretha Gladys and she was 13 years old. She was sweet, loving, patient, and very polite. She was bow-legged, pigeon toed, and loved spaghetti. We will be missed by her people and by her partner, Atticus.

RIP Aretha July 1998 - December 7, 2011

  1. I’m very sorry for your loss 😦
    I can recall the emptiness that filled my chest when my own pet passed away. It won’t get better immediately, but with time it will become less and less painful, until one day you can look at all those wonderful memories and smile. Sending lots of hugs your way.

  2. Thanks, you guys. It’s been very difficult but I think I’m starting to move into a place where I can be grateful for having had my Aretha for 13 years, rather than just focusing on the massive loss. We had a lot of fun. She was a wonderful little dog and she had a pretty awesome little doggie life. I know that I’m really lucky to have great memories of her. But I do miss her furry face!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
