I can't believe I am writing this memorial. Yesterday, I lost my beloved 16 yr. old American Eskimo, Lumi. It still hasn't sunk in. He was a grateful rescue dog who followed me everywhere for 13 years...he would whine at the door when I went to the bathroom and we were always aware of each other's presence. I have been a stay at home mom and worked from home all these years, so he has been at my side around the clock.
Lumi seemed to be more than a dog. His little soul was almost human but more innocent and faithful. My friends and family all noticed the strong bond we had. Six months ago he almost died but miraculously pulled through and I gratefully Knew I was given borrowed time with my special companion. Even so, I am totally lost in grief. I have lost many pets but this one is hitting me the hardest because Lumi expressed his love the most and I reciprocated. I take comfort in knowing he is with my Dad and Father-in-law now, along with all of my many precious critters.
