Though our dogs bring us GREAT joy, the reality is, great sadness is also a part of living and loving. With heavy hearts and an abundance of tears, George and I had to say "good-bye" to our beautiful, beloved girl Chelsea. She was 14 years old and the foundation of Renaissance. Our constant companion, she slept every night at the foot of our bed. I have so many wonderful memories of that little PINK puppy with the big ears that I will always treasure. We were truly blessed when she came home with us. Now, she will live forever in our hearts and in the lives of her get and grandget. There will NEVER be another Chelsea! We miss you terribly sweet girl!
