In early July I heard from my owners that Mandy the dog passed away. She had a great life and enjoyed every minute. Her favorite things were being petted, getting her butt scratched, taking a dip in the lake, and chewing her bones and squeaky toys. When I arrived at Keuka Lake and Mandy wasn't around, it just wasn't the same. I tried to make everyone happy by chasing my tail and lying down in spots that Mandy liked to lie in. It was a very difficult time for Meredith's parents and I'm grateful that I had a chance to meet Mandy. I will always look up to her.
Meredith's mom gave me the angel dog tag that Mandy had for most of her life. I wear it now, thankful for the love I am fortunate to have with such a great family.
