in my heart & in my memories

8 Apr

IMG_0947It fills me with sadness to share this news, but I am also flooded with happy memories of love; my family dog, mister Dexter Oliver Gowling, recently passed away. He was at the rich age of 77 dog years (not bad for a little guy). Dexter was one of my best friends who was an adorable sweetheart and a loyal loving companion. His last few years were spent in the wilderness of Windermere, BC: chasing the resident squirrel, napping in the sunshine or keeping a watch over the porch of the cabin. My little buddy, I hope you are happy and safe, and I can’t wait to see you again one day; until then, you are in my heart and in my memories.

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your loss, Jessica! I dread the day our Chloe dog leaves us. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Just treasure those happy memories, and hang in there.

    I send tender thoughts to you Jessica, it is so hard to say good bye to such a friend. Dexter was a lucky guy to have lived with your family and been so loved.
