That's our Dion, Memorial Day 1999.
He was 10 weeks old, asleep on a desk,
tuckered out from the parade festivities.
(Thank you, Suzanne, for finding this puppy picture and sending it; I'd lost it!)
|Dion, December 2010, at 11-and-3/4 years old|
Yesterday, August 1st, Howard, Anne, and I
fulfilled the promise we made to not let him suffer,
and said goodbye to our beloved boy.

My friend Karen posted a quote on Dion's Facebook page:
"Godspeed! Be thou comforted little dog.
Thou, too, in the Resurrection shall have a golden tail."
-- Martin Luther
A good dog.
There is no better epitaph.
Thank you all for your kind and understanding comments
the past couple of days. I know so many of you
have traveled this same path. -- Cass
