Farewell to Callie
Callie was a good dog and a great friend!
Callie began a gradual decline the last few weeks, Gentle Reader of This Blog, and this Tuesday last, she passed away here at our home in Tucson. Little Egypt came back for the holiday this last weekend too, and soon after Callie started to fade. My good friend John, a veterinarian, came over in the morning and helped her on her way.
Callie waits for me to take her to the park--our morning and evening routine.
Callie and I did one last trip to the park before she passed away--very early in the morning. She took her ball, but just checked out everything and we came back.
Callie loved Susan's wraps!
While Susan was here for a week in November, when we rode the Mt. Lemmon 200 Brevet, Callie's health improved and we thought she'd make it through to Christmas.
Callie loved to sit in trunk of my car on the weekends, and watch the world go by.
Ready to go for a hamburger!
I got Callie ready for our road-trip to Lawrence, Kansas by taking her everywhere with me. Used to be a car trip was to Petsmart and the dog beauty shop--which she was not that trilled about. Instead we went for a hamburger, her favorite thing!
Road trip in September.
Callie in Rico and Little Egypt's house in Lawrence.
Summer in Kansas.
Callie was 15 years old and we still walked and played catch every day.
My best friend--I'll miss her...
Farewell, Callie! Allure Libre!
