All Dogs Go to Heaven

RIP Apollo
October 2002 - August 18, 2014

On Monday we laid to rest our friend.  
Our guardian.  
A king.  
A giver of kisses and receiver of hugs and tears.  
A lion who defended his family.  
One of our first babies before our human babies.
A silly goof and cuddle buddy.  
The best babysitter.  
Our tears are not yet dried.  
We still look for him everywhere and listen for his ever-present panting.  
My children have never known life without him.  
His sister mourns him with us and has been sticking very close. 
 Her sweetness and snuggles help.
We know that he is at peace and healed.
Our daughter has said he is helping Peter guard the Golden Gates.
I have no doubt.

Oh, April. I am so sorry. We laid our beautiful big red Buddy to rest a couple of months ago. It is so hard and time just has to happen before the healing begins, but they will never be forgotten. Take care, Judy
