We lost our Marina yesterday, after a tough year of blindness and cancer. She was the best little sister to Reese, and then big sister ever to Bonny. (And she was a great only dog in the middle.) Sweet and caring and unfailingly neurotic – we loved her to pieces. She was Doug’s favorite running partner, and my favorite renovation supervisor. And she was the best basketball-watching-couch-snuggler. She’s had a rough year, but her tail wagged in her crazy figure-8 pattern through it all. We are heartbroken to lose her, but even more happy that we had an incredible decade with her. It’s so hard to lose a pet, but there’s comfort in knowing that Bonny will lead the way someday as a big sister herself, whenever we rescue again. Old homes just require pets inside of them. We’ve been so, so lucky to share ours with these sweet girls.
Thank you for letting us share her with you.
