MISS ROXIE and TOM
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream! RLS
A cool, slight breeze, lifts my fluffy fur, pushing the fur from my face. I am running in a field of dew covered clover, fragrant, singing, flowers are turning their heads toward the warm sun. The sound of happy, barking, dogs join me as they greet me, and frolick.
I have never felt this happy. I think I am home.
Something rouses me. I hear someone calling my name, offering me a slice of pizza.
Not this time.
I lay my head down, returning to this magical, beautiful, place, where I run, play, bark, and feel an indescribable joy.
In this dream, I'd rather stay.
And so, Miss Roxie AKA: Bella the Blogging Dog, passed away at the ripe old age of 14 years. A joy, a twinkle, a love, an intrinsic, beautiful, 4-legged, vibration in Spanish Village....through the years.....leaves her footprints in the memory of so many villagers who will miss her.
Author's Note: Bella will still live on in her blog. I think Miss Roxie would want it this way, and besides, she adores the notoriety.
So, good-bye good girl.....next time I see you, I promise to rub your tummy, bring you a brand new pink bow, and a big slice of pizza.
