Our Beloved Portia

Portia was a wonderful dog, and we lost her about two months ago. We brought her home with her sister, Pfennig, in 1996, so she was with us for 11 short years. We bought two beds for them, but one bed was always empty. Actually, both beds were usually empty (at least when I came home from school). Portia was a loyal friend and an accomplished hunter–her favorite twilight activity was crab hunting on the beach (she’d always get several, even towards the end). Once, she even caught a squirrel. I’ve never seen a dog do that. One day, I came home from school and my parents gave me the bad news. I loved that little dog.
