Today we’re losing our old dog. After 16 or 17 years, we’re not sure which, our fuzzy Zen-master is moving on.

In her life, she’s peed in most of the rest areas between New Mexico and New York, twice; taught play to dogs who were afraid to play and those who were mean to appreciate a friend. She’s taken others on grand adventures under secret identities and made dog friends in new places before the dog owners knew us.  She’s hiked in the Sangre de Christos and the Adirondacks and many places in between. She’s ridden in a canoe, fallen through the ice, fished and caught goldfish, perch and frogs. (I can still see her with little frog legs hanging out of her mouth.)

We think she’s famous in the dog world. How will they celebrate her passing?

Oh, the dog looking straight at you is the other dog. He’s more at my level of perfection.

  1. Ursa, that sweet old soul, surely will join Maisie is a game of some sort, showing Miss M once again who is the wise one.

    She was lucky to have found her perfect family.

    I’ll miss her.

  2. Sorry – what a sad day, yet happy memories. What fun she had! Enjoy the memories.

  3. Yes, she was so lucky to find you and you to find her. Tell me when she visits your dreams. I hope she’s met Mugs and Bear and Dusty. That’s silly. Of course she has. That has got to be one heck of a party.

  4. didn’t see this post until now… so sad, so sorry. She was the perfect dog voice of calm and reason. Am sure she’s found Daisy to play with.

  5. Sorry to hear about Ursa. Great pet and friend. You will miss her and remember her always
