There were long summer evenings spent lying on the grass with Gypsy, talking, and playing with him. There were picnics spent with him trotting jauntily along beside of us. There were woodland walks, mischievous chases, rescuing visitors from his loyal protection (his bark is worse than his bite, and he never bit anyone), nights spent getting up at midnight to sneak out and talk to him when he was lonely (yes, I'm guilty) there were many happy greetings whenever Gypsy saw us, we spent many hours every day simply enjoying the blessing of his loyal and devoted friendship.
Yesterday our beloved dog passed away of old age, we all loved him dearly and his death brought many tears to our eyes. Though we are very sad we find comfort in knowing that we filled his last years with lots of adventures and happiness for him, he had found a loving family and he spent the rest of his life with us. We will cherish his memory always.
In memory of Gypsy. Our beloved dog.
