"and God said I do set my bow in the cloud
and it shall be a covenant between Me and the Earth and every living ceature that is upon the Earth." (Rainbow bridge). Heaven has dogs!!! I lost my best friend last September. I had a couple of dogs as a kid but he was the first of my very own. I got him by way of a co-worker involved in general dog rescue and as soon as I changed apartments to a place that would take pets I told her to find one for me. She took me to see 3 dogs one evening and I just thought Bisquit was the cutest. I loved the clean lines and the expressive face. I had no idea about what it meant to have a Basenji. I went home, thought about it for a day and went with the cutest. Wow!! What an experience! He was nothing like either of the dogs I had as a kid and nothing like any dog I talked to people about. He was, however, my best friend, my wing man, my confidante, a conversation piece, escape artist, and all-around great dog. We learned to live together. He moved with me 3 times and adapted wonderfully. Despite having a new guy, I still miss him.
There will always be a hole in our hearts for those we have lost, but our hearts grow larger every time we find a new friend.
