My sweet Guinness came into my life on February 28, 1995 when I adopted her from the Humane Society.  I always wanted a dog my whole life, and finally, now that I was grown and on my own, it was time to fulful my dream of having my own dog.  We had so much fun together!  We went to obedience classes (I was a first-time dog owner and needed that) and eventually she got her CGC certificate.  She was my dog, my daughter, my best friend; it broke my heart to see her slowly get old.  Tragically, back in October 2008, she was really having a  hard time walking and didn't want to eat.  Her glands were all swollen and the vet said it was lymphatic cancer.  I tried so hard to prepare myself for that day, but I was far from ready for the experience of watching such an important part of myself slip away.  We took our last walk along the paths where we had played for 14 years.  She died on a beautiful sunny Indian Summer day - in my arms and with Daddy kissing her head.  I love you Guinness.  Miss you.


Love, Mommy
