It just occurred to me that it was one year ago that we said goodbye to our farm dog, Sparky. He was a faithful companion and guard to hearth and home.
Sparky was old and infirm and finally his heart gave out. We took him to the vet and said our last goodbyes on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2010 around 1 pm.
Sparky was the alpha of our dog family. Roxy (Beagle) and Nick (Golden Retriever) said goodbye, too, in their own way. They knew something was wrong and that he wouldn’t return in the same form.
He’s buried underneath a giant oak tree in the field where he kept the coyotes at bay.
We still miss you, Sparky dog!
