She found us when she was 5 months old. I’m not sure who needed who more at the time, all I know is that it was love at first sight for both of us. Spirit was with us for many phases of our lives, from first tooth lost to the first one to college. Her instincts told her that the kids in the backyard needed to be herded and she always did a fine job with a smile on her face and joy in her heart.

She charmed everyone who met her with her graceful, calm demeanor. Her eyes spoke eloquent volumes as she searched my face every day after work…how was your day, dear? Spirit was my walking companion, my friend, my confidante, my heart. Thank you for taking care of us so well all these years.

You are missed, dear girl.
