Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.
Today we had to say goodbye to our very much loved dog Sox.
She was the kindest dog I have ever met, & she certainly was very strong willed.
When she first saw you , she would bark till you paid attention to her & said hello properly.
She would tap you till you shared your dinner with her , & always wanted to kiss the children.
She was probably the only dog in the world who could go out for her walk on the beach on a rainy autumn morning & come back completely clean,
& the only dog in the world I let anywhere near my children when they were newborn babies.
She was more than that though.
She was Emi’s best friend,
keeper of her secrets (mainly about cookies those two got out of the kitchen & shared secretly, I believe..) .
She was never just a pet,
she was family.
Goodbye sweet Soxxy.
we will miss you so.
