Saturday, July 7, 2012, I ended the earthly life of my most precious Zoe.  She was suffering from the pain and side effects of progressive Mast Cell cancer and I choose to believe it was the last act of love and kindness I could give her.  But it was also the most painful and gut-wrenching decision of my life.

She burst into my life at the tender age of 8 weeks old and was with me for 13 years, 2 months.  Throughout her life she was my truant puppy, silly playmate, trustworthy confidant and faithful companion and I will miss her immeasurably.

I choose to believe she will be welcomed with open arms by my Dad and our dogs that have gone before her.  I wish her eternal days of rolling in the grass, running ‘full speed’ around the ‘heavenly’ yard, barking at celestial UPS trucks and playing with great abandon!

Thank you, dearest Zoe, for sharing your life with me.  You have shown me what unconditional love truly is and I will cherish your memory forever!
