died in 2003. Her name is Alli and she was 15 years old. She was the best dog. Loving, kind, loyal, playful. I still miss her and remember the great times my family had with her.

She is so sweet, I bet you miss her, did you ever get another dog to replace the love that you used to give her? How is school going, truly miss your discussions, so glad to see you again, take care.

My daughter moved back home in Aug. 2006 and she likes cats so now we have 2 cats that are sisters and their names are Barnes and Noble. Here is a picture of them. School is going great. Surprisingly our enrollment is up which is good for a private school in Michigan. I will try to get on mylot as much as I can but teaching at a boarding school takes a lot of my time but I would not have it any other way.

They are adorable, I am more of a cat person than a dog person, I just think cats are neater and cleaner than dogs, but I could be wrong. So glad to hear school is going good, I have missed your discussions over the summer, hopefully you had a good one! Take care.

Well it is true that they are probably cleaner than dogs. At first I thought that the cats would not snuggle up to us like our dog did but they have come around and are truly people cats now.

She was a real cutie Greg and an almost perfect twin of the dog my husband had when I first met him. I wish I had a picture handy to show you, the resemblence is incredible. We lost her back in 1999 at age 16 and still miss her something awful. It's amazing how they become so much a part of our lives and we never forget them.

They truly do become a part of your family. We had to put her to sleep which was the hardest thing to do but she was having grand maul seizures one after another and the vet said it was probably a brain tumor. I did not want to see her suffer. Also, she was going blind. We do have many photos of her though so her memory will always be with us.

The great thing is that we had her for so long and she did bring a lot of fun to our house. We still talk about her when something jars our memory and we think "oh yeah Alli used to do that." or "I remember when Alli . . . ." All good memories and we also have photos of her too.

Fifteen years, that's great! That probably makes it even more hard to lose her. No doubt we are better off for having pets, but when we lose them it is a laceration to the heart. But that can never erase the good times.

That is true and I am glad that we took a lot of pictures of her to remember her.

Well my daughter who is 27 decided to go back to school and since we live near a couple of universities we told her she could move back home. She wanted to get a couple of cats so now we have 2 cats. They are a year and a half old. They are sisters. Barnes is the yellow cat and Noble is the gray cat.
