Sophie


A boy and his dog share a special bond. They grow up together. Playmates, pals, buddies. One a confidant who cannot share the secrets whispered into a warm furry neck, who licks away tears and barks excitedly at a belly laugh. The exuberance of childhood contained in a wiggly, whining bundle of happiness and unconditional love.

Our sweet Sophie was hit and killed by a truck this afternoon. My poor J.T.'s heart is broken and mine is a little cracked.

She will go to rest with her favorite ball and lots of tears (I'm crying my eyes out right this minute).

She was loved.

We miss her so much.

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. Losing a pet...brings tears to my eyes. I think I will go and hug my Roxie right now. Thinking of you...

Oh Melinda,

Nothing I say will make things better for you, but just know that I know how you are feeling, how JT feels. Losing a pet is like losing a very special friend.

Poor little Sophie. My heart goes out to you all.
