As I was leaving the shelter disappointed that the dog of my dreams didn’t arrive I saw her. She was sitting in the middle of a pile of brothers and sisters who were all losing their minds as puppies tend to do. Not her. She just stared at me. Into my soul as only Violet could do.

Soft and gentle and always ready with a sneaky kiss right in the mouth. Life will never be the same without her. Her passing was sudden and has left us all in shock but we are focusing on the memories because they are some of my most precious.
