If you haven't met Stacey of The Brown's Zoo Tales yet, I highly recommend you stop in for a vist.
Stacey began her blog about the same time I started mine and I've been following her for several months. I noticed today that my buds Jules,Spud, and McGillicutty are reading her blog too, and I'm delighted they've found her. I just love Stacey's posts because they are a pleasing blend of poignant, funny, fascinating or introspective thoughts, and always written with warmth and honesty.
For several weeks Stacey's beloved friend Jewel, a beautiful border collie, has been preparing to join the spirit world. I've often had the sense that Jewel could have left sooner but chose to stay on a bit to give Stacey sufficient time to say goodbye.
On Sunday Jewel became an angel and Stacey's eulogy to her is simply beautiful.
If you've ever had a beloved friend who walked on four legs, or even if you haven't, it will touch your heart.
