I said goodbye to my little buddy this week.  He was my constant companion in the sewing room.

And every time I sat in my chair, he plopped himself next to me.

He was with us for nearly 16 years. Which is a long time, and yet, it doesn’t seem like it was long enough.

I miss him so much already.

    I’m truly sorry for your loss. Toy poodles are such great dogs. Mine passed this November at nearly fourteen years of ago. The years with a dog are too short.
