My mother's old rocking chair nestled into

Remember when I said this was a bittersweet
week here on the farm?
our dear loyal friend, and
"king of the farmhouse"
The past two years, old age took
a toll on our little Scottie Winston,
no longer able to walk, we all tended
to his every need...including carrying
his weak little body outside to lay out under
the big tree in our back yard...one of his
favorite pass times!
Our little country boy was especially
fond of my husband...they were best buddies
to the very end!
Monday was a very sad and emotional
day for all of us and our nephew Daniel who was
also fond of Winston.
Samuel and Daniel did the honor of
carrying the burial box as we all
marched up to our special pet cemetery that
overlooks our pond!
All of our dearly departed pets are
laid to rest here...gone but NEVER FORGOTTEN!
In Loving Memory of
Winston McGregor Black
