Milo crossed the Rainbow Bridge today

Best friends come in many shapes & sizes
This one in the shape of a scruffy little terrier

By all accounts a wanderer,
When I eyed him trotting down the road
On a cold Spring evening almost 10 years ago.

He was a social friendly guy who had never met a stranger
A loyal devoted buddy to anyone who needed a friend.
Even after He’d settled into his new digs he’d wander,
Following his nose in his paripatetic fashion to find some new interesting adventure
 

Over the years he moved a little slower & stiffer,
his handsome brown mask lightened to white,
and his wanderings became infrequent…

He enjoyed the comfort of a warm bed, a regular mealtime, and the occasional treat

 But mostly he just loved walking with his best friend
…and keeping his human company
and today as he crosses over the rainbow bridge, our hearts are sad and our tears are fresh

So long dear one….happy travels.
