My constant companion, friend, and accomplice. We came into each other’s lives seemingly by fate. You were an explorer, detective, tom-girl, comedian, and neighbourhood celebrity. You could not resist mud or any adventure., Snow and puddles of any sort were your delight. You kept the world safe from the squirrel menace. You were poetry in motion when you ran, and man did you run. You honored your bloodline and I was honoured and grateful to call you my girl. Long may you run my friend. I’ll see you on the other side of the river.
