The Love of a Dog

In the fall of 1999 a little liver-colored puppy tucked himself around my feet as he was taken to the household that would be his all of his life.  He was a solid colored German Short-Haired Pointer who came to be called Luke.

He lived until a couple of weeks before his twelfth birthday and gave me many great memories.


6/3/1999 to 5/16/2011

Luke’s work is done.

He took our hearts and ran

with them, and he’s running still,

fast and strong a piece of our hearts

 bound up with his, forever.
