One year ago tonight, our little girl walked on. I held her in my lap; it took just over 40 minutes.

Someday, I'll write about who she was: a funny and fierce little tomboy girly girl who stole our hearts and then broke them when she left too soon. My fault; pyrethrin toxicity from her anti-flea/tick medication, and I didn't know until long after it was too late.

Now she rests by the garden, encircled by stones, with a heart-shaped rock to mark her place. Wings and I both bring her cedar and sage and lavender periodically, and I talk to her daily.

We love you, Dommy.
