I had to put Mia., my 17 year old Border Collie, to sleep December 1999.

She was my first dog.

She was a avid ball player and I always hoped that when her time came she would die while chasing a ball or a frisbee. But, alas, that was not to be. I had to make the very difficult decision to have her put to sleep. My dear friend, Dorothy, was with me that fateful evening. For her support that night I will be forever grateful.

I have not been able to spread Mia's ashes yet. I can't seem to find the right location..... Perhaps I am not ready to let go.

Everyday, I look at one or her five children, my other dog, Sasha, and think of her.
