TbT: Soulful Girl

Lasya - 2005

Last Thursday marked one year since I said goodbye to my first dog, Lasya. She was a Chow/GSD mix with a wonderfully calm and intuitive disposition. She had a wild heart and loved being outside. At my parents' mountain property she would have slept on the porch through a snow-storm if we'd let her. She was an incredible dog, and I was so lucky to share my life with her.

It struck me that while I think of Ruby and Boca as my second set of dogs, they are my third and fourth as an adult. It's hard to believe, how the time speeds swiftly by. Despite my misgivings about having two again, and especially two females, I realize how they complement each other, and me, and how we are a family. I have Lasya to thank for starting me on a path flanked by a canine duo.

  3. I never realized how close I could be to an animal until I lost my dog Carter a few years ago. It was one of the hardest things to deal with, though I feel lucky to have had a chance to know him while he was here.

    She looks like she was an amazing dog, we never do forget them.
