Vinodog 1.

I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon. But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me?”
Sir Walter Scott.

Vinomaker greeted me as I arrived home from work today with the news that V1 had died in her sleep.  What a wonderful way to pass on,  I just wish I'd been with her.  She was a great dog. 
Godspeed Mya.

So sorry VG. Vinodog1 certainly was lucky to die in her sleep.

I like to think of her giving those gophers hell, she was a good dog.

Sorry to hear about Vinodog1. Pets are family, and it is always hard to lose one. :-(
