Last night our dog passed away. She was a basenji/rat terrier mix and an awesome dog. She was born on the day that my husband and I got married. We got her twelve weeks later. I was not allowed to touch her or pet her for a couple months because my husband wanted the dog to bond with him, and that she did. She loved her daddy. You could say, "Where's Daddy?" and she would excitedly start looking everywhere.
We had her for almost 13 years. She was suffering from kidney failure. The kids are pretty sad about it. We buried her beneath a peach tree in our backyard.
Thanks for being a great dog for our family. We love you and will miss you. :)
