A Tribute To Happy
The last day of Happy's life, he wanted to be outside in the sun, even though the weather was too cold for him in his sick condition (he died of kidney failure). So we fixed him a soft bed and covered him up to keep warm. Pumpkin would not let him be alone. She drug her pillow out by his side and stood guard over her friend, sensing that his time was short and she wanted to say "goodbye".
Happy passed on to Rainbow Bridge the next morning.
Happy is buried in our yard on the banks of the Homosassa River that he loved so much. Pumpkin Pie often stops by and smells the flowers surrounding his grave. She has not forgotten her best friend ... nor have we. Every day the greyhounds and I enjoy our devotional out by the river, with Happy nearby.
