This is Eva, who died last night. Funny how we always thought that she would go before Crystal, but actually outlived her. Now she has died just a short while later.
Home seems a quiet place, even though she had not been very active the last few months, and we will be revisiting all those snapshots to make a scrapbook to help the children remember her. Funny, I can remember the names of all the dogs we had as children and my father is the same. Even though we know they will pass thro9gh they find a place in our hearts by their devotion and simple pleasure at our company.
When Eva arrived, she quickly persuaded my wife to allow her to sleep on the floor of our bedroom – a place previously forbidden to any dog:)
