Today, our Briar died.  He would have been 12 next month and was a grand old gentleman. Pigheaded with a marshmallow heart and the most tolerant, gentle and silly of souls.

I have a whole cache of wonderful, funny, touching Briar stories, but today I am too sad and I have one very sad little girl here, too.  My husband is not yet home from taking Briar for his last road trip, but this will be very hard for him as Briar was his first real pet (and though Boo was mine before I met Andy, he was definitely Andy's dog). 

So I just want to mark his passing and I will recount the 'Briar stories' another day.

Briar, Hiddencreek's Follow Me (1998 - 2010)
With thanks to Kate Hood for this fabulous portrait of Briar, taken last fall.

I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I'm sure it will be hard on your whole family. Best wishes in the days to come, I'm sure they will be rather difficult. Just do your best to focus on the good memories you shared.

I'm so sorry. I know it's left a hole in your heart. Your description of him being a grand old gentleman looks exactly like his picture!
Many blessings

Thank you all.
It has been a sad weekend here, but a peaceful one, it was the right thing in the right time.
