As you have probably heard, sweet little Dip from Sketching With Dogs crossed the Rainbow Bridge last week. I'm always sad whenever I hear of a pet from Blogville passing away. This one hit particularly hard for a couple of reasons. I've been emailing Lynne almost daily for the last year and a half to two years now, so that makes it a little more personal. Also, Dip looks like the long haired version of Chico, who is suffering from leukemia. While Chico is doing well for the most part, it was a reminder that he probably only has a short time left with me.
Dip suffered from dementia for almost a year. She seemed to be doing well up until the last few weeks, then had a devastating stroke. She was a feisty little thing, and I don't doubt she's up in Heaven now looking down on Lynne and the family, watching over them all until they meet again.
If you haven't already, please stop by and give Lynne your condolences.
