Today we said goodbye to Yogi, lover of treats, toys, and belly rubs. 

He was the dog that taught us:

No matter how much you try to do things right, things can still go wrong. It isn’t your fault.

That no matter how much you try, you can’t fix everything alone.  Only God can do that.

Do the best you can, always… even when no one is looking, especially when no one is looking.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. 

There is no place like home.


While we will miss Yogi, we are comforted by the knowledge that his is no longer in pain and that he never will have to endure another trip to the Vet clinic or any place away from home, the only place he felt safe.

Several years ago, Yogi lost his two companions  Lila and Dafni and never stopped looking for them, always stopping when let out, looking back to see if they were coming also.   He has now gone on to join them.
