Thanks LeviTheFish. He really is a character.
Saying goodbye to Gypsy was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. We had a celebration of her at the animal hospital and spent a few hours just playing with her roaming free in the clinic. She got to play with all of her favorite toys and she got to eat all of the foods dogs can't have and generally got spoiled beyond belief. Then she quietly slipped away in her bed surrounded by all of her favorite people, wrapped in her favorite blanket. It still hasn't sunk in that she's gone. I'm going to miss her so much.
Rest in Peace my beautiful Gypsy woman. Run free up there with no fear, and no fences to hold you back.
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die." - Mary Elizabeth Frye
