Goodbye, Old Friend

banshee1-copy1 Today, my dog died suddenly. She was a loyal companion for 12 years.

Over the years, she has knocked over Christmas trees, eaten boxes (yes,boxes) of ornaments, shredded everything in the pantry to bits, jumped through about 100 screens, broken fences, eaten my car seat belt, slept on the bed when no one was looking, and puked in my car.

But, in those twelve years she also kept watch under my son's bassinet while he slept, let my daughter dress her in tutus and hats, comforted my mom after her husband passed, and broken through a glass window to get to a man who climbed over the wall into my backyard one night when I lived alone.

She will be terribly, terribly missed.
