Goodbye Loyal Friend

We lost our sweet Vita today. It was a complete shock...she was only 8 years old. She seemed just fine when I took her and Meaux out early this morning. I found her around 10 o'clock this morning, lying in her favorite spot by the sunroom door.

Vita was the BEST dog ever! Jon and I got her in 2003, the year before we got married. She was our first baby. She was so smart and good natured. She was so gentle with the girls. She was a good protector...always keeping her eye on the girls when they were outside.

We buried her here at home, next to Kallie. At the little "service" we had for Vita, Savannah said, "Bye, Vita, I hope you're having fun up in Heaven with Kallie." We will all miss her so much.

Even the cats loved her.

She was the first one to come meet us when we brought Savannah home from the hospital.
