A: Do you know?

I took this photo on the way home after I went to pay my last visit to Dixie, my Terrier puppy girl, who I had lost to cancer the day before. I arranged to have her cremated so that her ashes could be buried by my late husband's grave as he had requested. It was a tough day for me and I needed something to lift my spirits a bit so I took the scenic route home. Although you can't see the Rockies from this angle they provide an incredibly beautiful view to the right of what this image shows.

    I read your story after I made my comment and I understand how hard it had to be for you to lose your little Dixie who was so much a part of your life. You gave her a good home and she was treated with love!
