Circle of Life
One year ago it came to pass that I had to have Abigail put down. She was my 2nd Basset, 15 years old and I think I cried for three weeks. In her final resting space I have put these words...
from Lord Byran......
on this spot
are deposited the remains of one
who possessed beauty without vanity
strength without insolence
courage without ferocity
and all the virtues of man without his vices
I held her in my arms as she went home. Just as I held her in arms when I brought her home when she was a puppy..... my best friend, ever.
My wife the, 'the light of my life', must have known the time was right. I sit here now with Dixie Rose. She is beautiful!! 9 weeks old and and has already settled into my heart.
All of the things we all love... beautiful, sweet, silly, a little crazy with unending curiosity, hunger, chewing and of course............. love.
the circle begins again.....
