June 20, 2011 Do All Dogs Go To Heaven?
Pierre, our first red toy Poodle that we ever owned, had to be put down at the age of 10. Jim and I were heart broken and traveled to Oregon to look at another red Poodle pup for sale. It was 1996 when we made the trip and we'll never forget it. The little Poodle pup that we went to see was not the one we ended up bringing home. A small cute bundle of red fur caught my eye and I inquired if he was for sale. The owner said he was only 6 weeks old and wasn't sure if she wanted to part with him yet, but with some pleading, she relented. We had already picked out the name Sparky so when I brought him out to the car and asked Jim, "well, what do you think?", he said he didn't look too "sparky" to him. As soon as we took off, he became much more animated and befitting his new name!
You are gone, Sparky, but not forgotten. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Until we meet again.
