today we said goodbye to our darling janie dog. she was my family's dog for many years. honestly, i am surprised at how hard i am taking this loss. i realize she was just a dog, but she really was a family member. at your side when you needed a friend. a furry little sister. i certainly will miss her. she was such a sweetie, especially protective and close to my sister linnea. although janie never learned any fancy tricks, she was quite entertaining all on her own. i'll miss her severe underbite, sweetie pie eyes, dark black coat and even her smell.
very sad day.
