Last week we said goodbye to our almost 15 year old Border Collie, Krusty. My husband got him as a puppy way back in 1996 and I came on the scene 9 years later. Krusty accepted me into the family and we became fast friends. I never really understood “dog people” before, but here I am missing our old friend.
When we pray for Oscar at night, we ask Jesus to give him sweet dreams and peaceful rest. I knew I would have to tell him something when Krusty was no longer here, so I told him that he would be going to sleep and he would be with Jesus.
Oscar asked, “Will he be having sweet dreams?” Choking back tears I said, “yeah buddy, he will.”
