Good-bye my sweet Retta.
On this bright, January morning, I lost my furry pal Loretta (more affectionately called “Retta” or “doogie”)
Losing a pet is always so so hard. But Retta was more than a pet. She was the epitome of cheerfulness and adventuring - up to the very end. She was a dear friend to a lot of people and knew how to cheer you up with a lick on the cheek and her wiggly tail. Every other day or so, she would take off into the woods of New Bloomfield and explore. I never found out what Retta did for hours on end - but I believe she had her own particular route - snuffling through dead leaves, chasing scents and enjoying the sunshine.
I will always miss her indefatigable happiness and sweet presence.
So long my doogie. I know you are bouncing and wiggling somewhere in heaven. You taught me so much about living Life: how to be happy - to enjoy good food always - and the importance of long, carefree adventures. We will never forget you - just like in the song Austin wrote about you.
