Saying Goodbye to an old old friend...

My sweet Tootle died today. I've had her since I was 13. She was wonderful - in an obnoxious, hilarious, barks too much and way too grumpy - dry sense of humor kind of way. She did what she wanted, always, to the end. She made her decisions, and stood proudly as they played out.

If a dog could have 9 lives, Tootle had 12.

I miss her terribly sweet girl, my darling friend, my first real responsibility, my love.

Rest peacefully Tootle head - thank you for so many years of companionship, loyalty, strength, and unconditional love.



  1. this just makes me so very sad. I am so sorry, H. :(

  2. So sorry for your loss. Which one was Tootle?

  3. Love the pic with Tootle. She was such a great girl!

  4. Love the picture of her, "Yes, I am in Heaven because I am being loved," smile. Tootle is saying, "Uh,uh,uh," which meant, "Yes, yes, yes," and trying to get somehow closer to you no matter how close she was already--a big fluff ball of love.
