JBelle Also Says Goodbye To A Beloved Dog

He can’t see, he can’t hear, his rear legs don’t work anymore and he is rail thin, probably with very brittle bones. Bob has welcomed me home for over 20 years, barking when my car hit the bottom of the driveway saying, Hey! I missed you! You’re back!

He was there for the pool parties, birthdays, graduations, Thanksgivings, Christmases, Easters and Halloweens/JBelle, Notes From The ‘Kan EWA. More here
