Lady, Duchess

I just read your story about Rescuing Sprite. It was wonderful! I too lost my best friend Lady, a collie, about 5 years ago. Lady was through everything with me. The loss of my child, the loss of my marriage after 25 years, and the loss of my father. Through it all she was there.
When my nephew and I had to take her to the vet and have her put to sleep because she was so sick she couldn’t even lift her head, it was heartwrenching. I have her ashes in a box on my coffee table with her name in a gold plate on top “Lady Ashley” and a little ceramic collie which sits on top. I miss her still today.
I have since remarried a wonderful man and we now have a collie, Duchess, who was a puppy at the time Lady was so sick, and a border collie Jade who is now 2 whom we love dearly. Since I could not have children, these are our children. I don’t know what we’d do without them.

Thanks for your book.
