Ebby's long life ~ 11.11.94 to 5.5.10 — Wednesday, May 5, 2010
Ebby came into my life six weeks after she was born on November 11, 1994. She accomplished many things in her long happy life, including getting me through an unfortunate marriage and an interminable divorce. You can read about her early years here, as she was the first in my immediate family to have a web page -- even before I did.
She also dodged a few metaphorical bullets of her own in the last couple of years, including an amazing story I'll post here eventually. She gave me far more than I gave her, and I learned much from her, including how to live and die with grace and dignity. There will be more dogs in my life, but none will ever replace my first. Thank you, sweet girl!
