The passing of our friend
It was sad to watch the once powerful and in control dog slowly lose herself. But up until the very last day she laid in her spot where she see both the front and back doors and guard the basement door. We will miss her. But sometimes you have to make hard choices in life and once we were sure there was no way to stop her pain and that she was in constant pain we had to make the choice.
Rest in peace my friend,
At times my nemesis,
No one could clean a roasting pan like you,
Or the grandkids' plates faster
When you were a puppy,
Your favorite game was played regularly
Keep away....with my socks.
You were known by many names
Erminator, JoJo, Devil Dog, and I am sure much more
But you were our protector,
At times, Alpha Female of the family,
You had an "I don't think so" attitude
And you didn't mind letting people see it.
Be at peace now JoJo,
Chase those cats and footballs.
I hope someone has the water hose on
And you are jumping and barking.
We will miss you.
