Here is Adam holding little Brees in my parents' driveway.
Two years later, another litter was born next door, and we added Mini to the family - 'Mini Brees' to be precise. While they looked alike as young puppies, Brees grew to be a darker, rust colored gold, while Mini was the blonde. They were a pair, Brees and Mini. Mini and Brees.here.
In the last few weeks, a young cat had been hanging around, and Jim took this photo when he found them snuggled up together in Brees' dog house a few days before she died. I think animals have a special sense about life and death and the connection between living things. And while the cat may return, we have, interestingly, not seen it since Brees died.
Sweet dreams, Brees. We'll miss you. We loved you.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small.
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
