Dog Heaven


Readers of this blog will know that just two weeks ago, we lost our beloved Harvey who left us after nearly 15 years of tail waggingly unconditional love.

Today another beloved canine companion left this early life when Cuthbert (AKA "Bert") Bradley-Hopkins joined Harvey and all those others who have gone before us.

Michael has written a loving tribute -- "Untroubled Joy: For Cuthbert"-- on his blog "From Glory Into Glory" and I commend it to you:


Love the animals:

God has given them

the rudiments of thought

and untroubled joy.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

This book was given to me by a friend in memory of Dragon who had to be put to sleep due to a horrendous cancer in his little body. It was a comfort then and is still. We who have lost these creature-messengers understand your pain and loss. Thank you for sharing your grief and joy.
