Dear family and friends,

Tomorrow, October 2, 2007, will be two months since my sweet son Mickey passed away. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of the joy he gave me. I was truly blessed in sharing 15 years with him. Your kind words and thoughtful cards helped Rodrigo, Stitch, and I during this difficult time.

As I sat here thinking of him tonight I came across a few photos that made me smile. I would like to share them with you, along with these thoughts that I found, in thanks for your kindness and hope they bring a smile to your face too!

A few things we can learn from our dogs:

  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Run, romp and play daily.
  • Take naps and stretch before rising.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle him or her gently.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body!
