It was a year ago today Allie left us. She was able to spend the last few weeks of her life at her favorite place on Earth: On Lake Michigan running after birds on "her beach" and chasing her Frisbee. There was nothing we would not do for her, but in the end, there was nothing we could do for her, other than kiss her goodbye and make sure that she knew that her last moments with us that she was surrounded by love. She was kind, gentle and a little mischievous, but a better dog you will never know. Allie, we miss you every day, but we know that even now, you are keeping the birds off your beach.

"Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears
but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you...
I loved you so...
'twas Heaven here with you"

You know she has her paws full keeping Rex in line. I can only think they're both having a grand time chasing the birds! You gave her an extraordinary life. For that, I'm sure, she was very thankful.
