Those of you on Facebook know how memories of past posts pop up from time to time.

Today, the memory was a challenge (from my sister's dog Vision.) She sent a number and I had to list that # of things about Skye.

The list made me smile, so I thought I'd copy it here. Has it really been 10 months? It seems like both yesterday and forever.

Skye in 14 steps -
1 I was born in an Amish puppy mill in southern Ohio.

2 My next stop was a kill shelter in Cincinnati where I was pulled by a rescue group.

3 When I was 4 months old I was spayed (whatever that means) and I was also adopted. Yay!

4 I love toys, don't tear them up and still have the first one my mom gave me - a baby kong.

5 I miss Solo and my Sophie who taught me to play nice and ring potty bells.

6 When I was less than a year old, I became an obedience demo dog and learned patience.

7 My picture and baby bio is on a Blue's Buddy trading card so a lot of people found my trading card in bags of Blue Buffalo dog food.

8 My cousin Mya bit my nose and made it bleed (we were both trying to catch a ball at the same time.)

9 I am a kind dog, so I forgave my cousin Mya.

10 I have a degenerative eye disease, pannus, and other eye problems so I don't see as good as used to.

11 I love my 'brother' Buddy but I don't understand why he does not play with toys.

12 I really, really love my cat Sam and we play together every day.

13 I eat because I have to, but I am not much of a foodie.

14 I am 10 years old and my mom loves me best! (Don't tell Buddy or Sam because they think she loves them best.)

And a picture from Skye about the same time, 10 years old.

Thank you for sharing this. Skye was such a special girl. I love the photos of her and the poem. It exactly captures my feelings about my senior girl, Heidi.
