Over the Ocean

Last night, during her bath, Chloe began singing.

Bring back
Bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me

She sang joyfully, inspired by the Border Collie magnet she stole from her grandparent's house. I found I wasn't yet ready to tell her that Mimi and Bwana's Bonnie had passed away earlier that day.

For fourteen years, Bonnie was more than just a pet. She was a friend, a playmate, a confidante. She will be missed.

Bonnie was one in a million. I have several fond memories of her from when I stayed with Bwana for a semester in college. Please pass my condolences. I'll have some feta cheese on my dinner tonight in her memory.
