Facing The Reality . . .

 
 
I finally had to face reality today
You may remember me mentioning
my daughter/son in law/Tyler/Jordon's dogs
Paws and TJ,
 
Snickers, Paws and TJ enjoyed
great times together.
 
My daughter took me for a birthday lunch today.
Since we were going to eat at a place near her,
 I drove to her house.

Paws died Memorial Day weekend
First time I had been to their home since she died.
 
Everyone has been sad.
We knew Paws, the Great Dane
was growing old and having some issues.
 
But none of us were ready for her passing.
Thirteen years old.
And a wonderful family dog.
 
Driving in their driveway was always a treat
because Paws always came running out to meet us.
She loved Jack's ear rubs.

Look at those paws,
No wonder Tyler and Jordon chose
PAWS
for her name. 





We miss you Paws.
1999-2013

Can't decide whether to get a book on this myself, or just read several posts. Can there be that much to it?

I know I love dogs. My dog has long gone also.

Sorry to hear the passing of paws.

We will never forget our dogs.

Will we. They are so like family . They take us like we are, they never judge us. They love all of us as owners unconditionally.

Your paws was a great bonnie looking dog.
