In Memory of Mickey


My cousin Mickey has gone to the Rainbow Bridge where I know he is running and chasing tennis balls to his heart's content.  Mickey passed away peacefully yesterday.  He was 13.  Although I only really got to see Mickey during the holidays, I can tell you what a sweet-natured and loving boy he was.  He also loved his family very much as they loved him.  He loved chasing tennis balls too, but I guess that comes with the territory when you are a Retriever. ;)  The picture above is from two winters ago when we were outside playing.  Mickey was busy watching for a tennis ball to be thrown while I was busy watching for him to make a move. :)  It's obvious from his face what a sweet boy he was...don't you think.

We will all miss you Mickey...you will forever be in our hearts.

Also...Ed, Alison, Dakota, & Sarah, we are thinking of you and hope your hearts will find a way to heal.

Love,
Nala & Pawrents

Sorry to hear about your cousin's journey over the bridge. I'm sure he's chasing the bounciest, brightest tennis balls. Oh, and you are looking very stylish in your scarf/bandana.

I how you will miss him. It sounds like he had a good long life and he is certainly living it up over the Rainbow Bridge. He'll be there waiting for you when your time comes so live your life to the fullest for now and know that he is watching over you.

Hello Nala, sorry to hear about your cousin. It's always so sad when any friends go to the bridge, and there are really no words to help.

Pleased to see some lovely pics of you though on your blog.
