Our family dog, Brandy passed away today. She passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. She wasn't sick, and was running about just the day before. She simply suddenly peacefully passed away in the loving arms of my Daddy today. I miss her so much already. I feel so badly for my parents who will be missing a big warm furry loving part of their lives. My daughter Kayleigh and Brandy had a very special relationship. Brandy would stay with us when my parents traveled and Kayleigh would often be found playing with Brandy, petting her, sitting on her while eating her snack, and even sleeping on her! Brandy was the kindest, most gentle dog. If you would say TELL ME, she would bark...and if you asked her WHO DO YOU LOVE she would go to her favorite person of the moment and bark. She would stick her big head on your lap and wait for you to pet her and when you didn't she would nudge your hand until you did. She had the most beautiful face, the fur around her face was really blond. I used to love getting her to jump up on the bed, knowing she wasn't allowed and then curling up against her big furry body and sleeping. I loved sneaking her food, especially yummy treats from the dinner table. She loved our dog Frodo, the two would chase and play and hump....and hump and chase some more :) So many happy memories:)
My dad told me today that our pets our gifts from God, that they are examples of PURE furry unconditional LOVE :) Thank-you for all of your love Brandy, and I will love you always.
