I got Bonnie from my car mechanic as soon as she was weened. Our bond was very strong. We were always together.

She was extremely intelligent. She was a puppy when I held a cordless phone up to her ear. She looked surprised to hear a voice on it. She went immediately to a radio sitting on the floor and put her mouth on it to show me she knew what the phone was. A radio!

She had a bone cancer and by the time it was discovered it was inoperable. I grieved for her more I ever grieved over anyone. Buy I console myself with the fact that I gave her everything I could and she had a good life for her seven years. I know she has gone to her next life and maybe we will meet again some day.
