My Other Angel

I am an animal lover. Most all animals, some I like better at a distance, but I still love them. If you are not one of those people you will not relate to being "in love" with one. It is amazing how they become so many things to you. They love you NO MATTER WHAT!!

We had dogs growing up and in college. They were all great and special to me, until I got Riggs. He was a real person living in a dog's body. He knew every emotion I had and reacted to it accordingly. A dog is not only a man's best friend, but a woman's too.
The hard thing about all living things is that they die. Most times for me long before I am ready to let them go. Although it is part of life, it is still a diffucult one to grasp being the one left behind.

It is hard to think back to a time that he wasn't around. August 1995, one good thing that happened in August. My piggly wiggly came into this world. August 23, 1995 - December 22, 2007. I miss him everyday, Happy Belated Birthday, Riggs.
