unconditional love & loss...

Porter
5/99-3/12

On Friday our family said goodbye to our sweet, funny and mischievous dog, Porter.  In his 13 years with us Porter wore many hats: confidant, companion, clown, adventurer, mediator, traveller, protector and muse.  His passing leaves a gaping hole in our collective hearts which in time we will fill with fond memories and laughter.  But for now (and for a long to come i think) that hole feels empty and wide and our house feels much too quiet.  He was so dearly loved and was such a very good dog.
