Ernie

Last weekend the world lost a very special boy.

He was always handsome

even if just snoozing in the sun

He was always talented

with an eye to where his next meal was coming from

He was never photographed with real food-
it never lasted long enough

Ernie only lived with us for 3 of his 14 years, but lived with other family members for the rest of his life. It was always great to see him, and he always greeted us with a delightful display of joyous singing.

The last time we saw him in April

Sing on, little Ernie. What a great little chappy.

That's so sad Louise. We recently said goodbye to my sister's beautiful maltese silky cross dog after nearly 14 years. It broke all our hearts.
It looks like you have lots of wonderful memories though :-)

I am sorry for you. He looks like a great dog. I love it when dogs go all white around the whiskers.

I am sad he he is no longer with you, but judging from these photos you must have some wonderful memories of that lovely dog. This week I've shifted my Snapshot on to my other blog http://goo.gl/4Z1dgf

My heart breaks for two reasons when I read this -- first, I have said goodbye to a beloved animal family member. It is so very, very hard -- even though they are more ready than you are.

And in every single physical way, he reminds me of dear Jack, our Jack Russell terrier we had when I was in college and beyond. Such a sweetheart. I know yours was, too. Sending lots of hugs.
