Flowers for Dory

Today we remember our friend Dory.  We are so thankful for all the smiles and joy she gave us as she welcomed us to her backyard, joining us in fun and happy barks, making us feel like family.  We will miss you Dory. -



I built a tiny garden
 In a corner of my heart
I kept it just for lovely things 
And bade all else depart 
And ever was there music 
And flowers blossomed fair; 
And never was it perfect 
Until you entered there - 
-Beulah B. Malkin

  7. Lovely. Dory will be smiling to see those.

    You are right, we don't have flowers in the hills yet. There are some poking up in the city, but not this far north yet!
