This is a repost of a piece my mother wrote about a very special dog. Enjoy!
In the late 1980's circumstances forced us to move from our country home to the city. Since we couldn't take our much-loved dog, Gretchen, with us, we left her with my parents in Fairfield, Idaho on the family farm. Gretchen thrived there and she became my parent's dog. She would go with them on their walks and follow dad everywhere on the farm. Then she was accidentally killed. Here is a short piece my mother wrote shortly after that happened.
