Goodbye Friend

Earlier this year I had to say goodbye to my best four-legged friend.

How lucky we were. We got to spend eight years with this unforgettable spirit. Leaping horizontally over a leaf on the sidewalk. Turning on a dime to the call of 'Morgan, come" and barreling back to claim his reward. Ears endlessly on alert for the click of the cupboard, the crinkle of a food wrapper or the 'plop' of a potential morsel hitting the ground. Our floors may never be so clean. 
Seeker of sunny spots. 
Leaner against legs, sitter-oner of feet (but only those he really loved). 

Smushed-up face. Googly eyes. And those ears.
Those tall silky ears.

I don't what Morgan's life was like before we met him, but I know he had an awesome life once we did. From a very rough beginning grew a deep friendship. 
I wish I had him for all 12 years of his life, but that we got 8 after rescuing him? Lucky. So lucky. We loved him so well. Our house was empty without him. My heart was broken.


  1. Awwwww! Sorry for the loss of your friend! Sounds like you gave him a wonderful, loving 8 years!

  2. Love love love to you and yours. So sorry for your loss, and so glad that another who needs you has found you.

  3. And this is why it took me 14 years to bring silly Millie into my life. I love too deeply and I hate that about myself. Soooo sorry for your loss. He looks like quite the character. :)

  4. I am very sorry for your loss. I met Morgan a few times while walking my dogs Callie and Sammy. I lost them in 2012 and my heart still aches.

  5. Such a sweet pup, so sorry for your loss.

  6. So sorry for your loss :(


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
