    This diary really touched me deeply. You gave that dog dignity.

    It's people like you, epjmcginley, that make this world a better place to live in.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      Thank you for reading.

      Peace will not be the end, unless peace is the means to that end.

        Fare you well, my only true one.

        All the birds that were singing were flown, except you alone.

        Gonna leave this Brokedown Palace
        On my hands and my knees, I will roll, roll, roll.
        Make myself a bed in the waterside
        In my time, in my time I will roll, roll, roll.

        In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside, I will lay my head
        Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul.

        ...

          A fitting tune for a lovely weak and yet profoundly strong soul. I knew Tiptoe and met her just after her discovery/ rescue. I marveled that she even survived to find Ned. A truly pitiful sad sight to see such condition of any living being. It also occurred to me that for all our belly aching as to how "hard" life is this small being shows the resilience and perseverance to continue if only for the destination of final rest, at last with a warm fire and a full belly, a truly deserved reward. I'm usually not very emotional but I too am finding myself  teary. Thanks for sharing my friend.
