Our 27 pound but larger-than-life French Bulldog, Archie aka Lew Archer, Private Eye. He missed Donna and was gone a few months after her passing, age thirteen.
Our late, lamented, six pounds of fury Papillon, Dreamy. She made it to eighteen years, was a trouper until the end.
Our 150 pounds of gorgeous Cane Corso Belladonna aka Donna. She loved the entire family, despised strangers and ended up being my constant companion. When the time came for her to go, she looked me straight in the eye and passed away in my arms.
