Just two hours ago, I had to send my baby dog Piper up to the golden gates of heaven. The gates of heaven are golden because of all the golden retrievers walk through them leaving there goodness along with all other dogs who are not golden but share hearts of gold.
On the way to the vet, I was comforted when I began to think that I am joining a vast array of very special people who love dogs as much as I do.

I believe that dogs are a very special gift from God. Piper stayed with me during the hard times and cancer. I will think of her every day. Piper I love you and I will miss you. Please say “Bark!” to Dad for me. I will always love you…
