In Memoriam

Diablo (12/1996 – 5/13/2013)

Diablo03On the 1 year anniversary of our beloved Diablo’s death, I finally find myself able to collect enough strength to write a post in her honor.

Diablo was the first dog I ever had and I loved her more than words can express.  She was beautiful, lively, sweet, and had a personality that sometimes drove us crazy, but that’s what made her special I guess.

IMG_0034At 16 and a half, she lived a very long life for a dog her size, and Ray and I think it was a happy life too.

She is the one that turned Ray and I into a family long before Mina joined us and we adopted children.  Mina is actually the one we credit with keeping Diablo young and healthy by keeping her active and always on her toes paws.

2013_01_16_9999_26-1I just came back from the quiet place in the woods where we buried our girl around this hour a year ago and I still miss her enormously.  And I still love her enormously.  As I will always.

You brought immense joy and unconditional love to our lives Diablo, and for that we’ll always be grateful.

Rest in peace.  I love you.
