My 11 1/2 yr old German Shepherd companion Tara passed to the Summerlands on July 10. She had her own account here as Tarawoof and took part in several pub crawls
I miss her very much. She slept on my bed for 11 yrs and was with me nearly full time. She especially loved car rides, and is the only dog I've even known who greeted strangers and let them pet her when she was in the car. She wasn't a good guardian - she met strangers and friends alike at the door wagging her tail, with a toy in her mouth and hopeful expectation in her eyes.
I was at Brushwood at a festival when she died. She had been at the kennel less than 2 days. I grieve for her, especially that she died alone, without me there.
May she play happily in the Summerlands with my other companions and may the all greet me when it's my time.
