There is a reason that they call dogs “man’s best friend.” They are such a gift and they add so much to our lives. My best friend growing up was a black cocker spaniel named Bianca. She has been gone for years, but I still miss her.
Sadly, last weekend my good friend’s dog Yogi died. As she stated on her Facebook page, “Yogi with his dreamy carmel eyes added so much to my life. He lived each day to the fullest. Spent his days chasing birds, butterflies and crickets. He sometimes just ran for the pure joy of it. He reminded me that life is good. I will hold him close to my heart and try to live every day to the fullest like he did. He must have played with a kissing bug……he will always be with me for I will never forget his kind gentle soul… a short life but one well lived.” So, I ask you to join me and raise a glass to Yogi. There was never a better best friend.
