I had a post ready to go tonight, but things changed. I lost my dog of 13 years — my baby Cassie. She has been a huge part of my family in so many ways — teaching me responsibility, love and many many other things.
Not only was she my companion…my childhood friend, but she was also like Lola’s mentor.
Cassie wasn’t quite socialized. Living in Orange County, she had a big backyard and didn’t have to mingle with other dog friends at the park. Sad to say but she actually hated EVERY dog. Until she met Lola. She treated Lola like a daughter and guided her — teaching her how to toughen up, to hold her own, and even how to bark (which I still won’t forgive here for!). The bond they had melts my heart.
She was the boss. She was a loving and caring dog. A family dog. She had the biggest heart.
Cassie — I will miss you forever, you hold a close place in my heart and will never be forgotten.
