I just found 100 Word Wednesday! Thank you, Bikurgurl!
To participate visit the link here. And, of course, you knew if it had a dog, I was going to write it!
On our first April trail-walk, Kasey was ten weeks, and frenetic bounding would have him dropping at my feet, needing to be toted.
We began hiking in summers on the same, though ever-changing trail. At night, Kasey would snuggle close between me and my boyfriend, his ears twitching with night’s sounds.
Last year Kasey turned fifteen, my boyfriend said “Sayonara,” and started a new, seemingly younger, life.
This October Kasey and I attempt the trail. He hears my ragged cough, waits, his face aged white. On a rocky precipice, we pause and our eyes follow as Canada geese arrow south.
This was written as a tribute to my own Kasey who left me on 12/15/12.

Beautiful – we lost one of our dogs last year but we still have the memories
Thank you, Deb. Yes, they stay alive in your heart, dreams, and memories. 🙂 (Fortunately)
Gorgeous, such beautiful markings. The memories never leave us, do they.
Thank you. And, no, they don’t. He continues to pop up in my dreams.
Likewise for all, past and present. 🙂
Love BOTH photos. And thankfully, no animals were harmed in the writing! No tears, big smile.
Beautifully written. Loved both photos. The special ones, and lets face it, our pets are special to us, remain with us forever! Mine do and I recall them with delight.
