It is with deep sadness, we share the loss of our most precious little dog, Sophie. Many of you knew and loved her as we did.
A few days ago Sophie suffered a major neurological event. It is not known if it was due to a stroke or a slow growing brain tumor. Her cognitive functions were materially compromised. In discussions with her veterinarian, we decided the most humane thing for Sophie was to euthanize her. She died in her back yard, a peaceful environment, with us surrounding her as she took her final breath.
We will miss her. The classic question and answer is Where do you bury a dog? You bury him or her in your heart. This is especially true for our Sophie.
Sophie was born on June 10, 2001, she came into our lives on January 24, 2004 and passed away on June 1, 2016.
If you have a pet, please hold it close and give your animal companion a special hug. No matter how much time you have together, it will never be enough.

somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings
a silent prayer
that makes the
rain cry. People dis-
appear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there
put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
see them dancing in a cloud during
day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They
paint the rain-
bows and also
the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.
toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
miss me too much.
The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine.
