I was thinking of Leia today. She was a dog my daughter rescued from euthanasia & left with us on the farm.
Her crime? I’m not sure other than being an undesirable white shepherd; a black sheep that sullied the breeding pool.
Leia was oftentimes mistaken for a husky because of her beautiful icy blue eyes. I never cared, I simply thought she was beautiful.
We could never make her understand the boundaries of the 10 acre farm – she felt sure it extended to a half mile radius.
Finding the photo of a book cover with her (playing the part of Gus) left me a little nostalgic.
It’s oddly amazing how animals touch our lives. …Our hearts.
In loving memory of Princess Leia.
I’ll see you in the clouds one day.
