Sunday night my best friend Cindy called to say her thirteen-year-old chow mix, Meggie Sue, had passed away. Some vision and balance problems, followed by falling down and suffering a broken leg, and deciding not to put her through surgery.
Meggie was a real sweetheart. She was cuddly and very well-behaved — I’d never have trusted our dogs to walk around in the back yard, which opens on a large pond, without doing something dumb (jump into the water chasing a duck, wander off into the woods, etc.). She loved showing people her favorite toys, but we weren’t supposed to touch them.
She’ll be missed.
And here’s me playing with Meggie Sue during one of my visits home. #SFWApro, please credit me if you use photos.
