The Great Dogs Are With Us Forever
Two great dogs were lost this week —
Gina Spadafori’s beautiful Heather
and Hope and Fran Saidel’s Golly, inspiration for their “GollyGear” shop.
Gina’s tribute to Heather is here, and ‘s for Golly is here. Like all great dogs, they leave holes in the lives of everyone who knew them.
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
So sorry for the loss of these beautiful dogs…..my condolences to Gina and Hope and Fran………….
In this case, we must take care our dogs for their memories will stay in our hearts. They love us for who we are. They don’t even have the right to choose who will be their boss.
Thank you so much for memorializing these wonderful companions. I can’t believe she has already been gone almost a week. I’m just barely starting to get used to the idea. ::::sigh:::::
