Duchess Marie

This past weekend Duchess, J's beloved black lab of 16.5 years, passed-on.

A truly beloved part of the family, she was the first animal I thought of as a "person."
In fact, it was made very clear to me from the beginning of my relationship with J that if I didn't pass the test with Duch, I wasn't going to get far with the rest of the family.

I understood why very quickly.

She was smart, loyal, and cool. A dog, yes, but still smart, loyal, and cool.   '
And pretty.  :)

We love you and miss you, Duchess.  It's the end of an era.
