Through Thick and Thin

Song - The Puppy Song by Harry Nilsson

Mika   2003 - 2016

“And it is exceedingly short, his galloping life. 
Dogs die so soon. 
I have my stories of that grief, no doubt many of you do also. 
It is almost a failure of will, 
a failure of love, to let them grow old
—or so it feels. 
We would do anything to keep them with us, 
and to keep them young. 

The one gift we cannot give.” 

 -- Mary Oliver "Dog Songs"

  1. Dear Jim and Jeanette-
    "If dogs have a heaven, there's one thing I know, dear Mika has a wonderful home", to paraphrase Elvis.
    She was as good as good gets, and my heart goes out to you for her passing. Hopefully a new puppy will again fill your home with tail-wags and devoted faithfulness.
    With love and best wishes,
