in memory of a very good dog


who loved opening presents and eating fruits and veggies,

chasing tennis balls and frisbees and pirouetting through billows of shoveled snow,

being tucked in on cold, Minnesota nights and shredding pizza boxes to minuscule bits and pieces,

playing tug-of-war with empty gallon milk cartons and chasing the cat out of the kitchen,

pursuing pesky flies and careening down the sidewalk at the end of the leash,

welcoming you home and sitting on top of your feet to be close to you.

a very good dog, indeed.
