A Most Special Friend

Yesterday we said goodbye to our sweet little Tillman. It seems like a merciful thing that we can put our beloved dogs to sleep when they reach a certain time in their lives. The vet agreed with our decision and said he wondered how Tillman managed to live so long. I don't wonder. Not only was it the love and care he received, but as in humans, his happy, strong spirit kept him going. I found that I admired him and the way he faced his changing and often difficult circumstances with joy and courage. Rest in peace my little buddy. Here he is in the spring of 2004, hanging out with Nicholas.
