farewell adobo

when we moved into this house about two and a half years ago i met a little black dog named Adobo. she was spunky and funny and would ruuuuuuun to greet me when she saw me. that was until she realized i would tattle on her as soon as i realized she'd snuck out. and when she became cognizant of the fact she'd been caught she'd feign as though she was both deaf and lame.

she was the biggest eloper you ever did meet.

gate left open? SCORE!

10 foot fence? no problem.

this week she started moving much slower and her little 14 year old body decided it was no longer able to keep going. i got to see her a few more times, last night she even gave me a slight little wag of her tail.

i loved that dog.

with tears in my eyes and love in my heart i say, rest in peace Adobo...

I say the same. Adobo, thanks for blessing the lives of those around you. You are a treasure that will live on our hearts.

Well..Hugs to you!

Oh Shannon I so know how you feel right now. I have yet to get over the loss of my beloved Jazz, and its been two years since we lost him. So odd and wonderful how our furry friends capture our hearts and hold it captive. They sneak in and become family. I'm so sorry for you loss~ xxx Vicki
