Louie the Loaner Dog

Today I received some sad news at the microcosm. Louie the Loaner Dog, who has visited here several times and who taught me that not all chihuahuas are yappy and snappy, passed away during the holidays. I will miss his cuddles and frenetic playing with his rat toy as well as his sweet and gentle disposition. Such a character, our little Louie.

Louie, dear one, you were much loved and you will be missed.
