|Max & Willie |
Willie died tonight. I know Rebecca, nearly 18, is sad, very sad. I know, too, that her mom, Kathy, is hurting. Willie was there through good times and bad. He was the ultimate cheerleader. If dogs could smile, Willie's grin would have been plastered across his face 24/7.
Willie was a little under a year old when Kathy met him at the D.C. animal control facility. I can't remember how he got there. He was one of those dogs that made you wonder out loud how could anyone give up such a sweet little guy. He loved Kathy and Rebecca with every bone in his body. They loved him at least as much, if not more. Willie was a little dog with a big, generous heart that, sadly gave out today. We'll miss you Willie.
