I just heard that a friend’s dog died from an apparent heart attack. Daisy was a 7-yr old Golden Retriever and she was a special puppy. Daisy had a great trick she would do — she would pick up the leash of another dog and take them for a walk. My dog, Emma Lou had a couple of play dates with Daisy and when we came home, Emma Lou was a happy girl. We last saw Daisy this summer and she had been shaved due to a skin problem. She seemed embarrassed, but she and Emma Lou and Daisy’s doggie sister, Lily, still had lots of fun romping in the back yard.
Today Emma Lou was a bad girl — she chewed up my new slippers. And I chewed her out something fierce. Now, I feel bad – it was only slippers. She’s going to get extra treats this evening, just because.
So, farewell Daisy – it was nice to know you. I’m fairly sure God has given you a new stronger heart up in Heaven and someday Emma Lou will romp with you again. Till then, know that you were a well-loved pet here on Earth and will be missed.
