Tribute to Galaxy

For those who don’t know we lost our border collie Galaxy to lymphoma last January 5, after a long and unsuccessful battle with the disease.

Our goal was to treat her with all that veterinary medicine had to offer, and the deal we made with God was, “Please God, let us take her to Jekyll Island this summer just one more time”.

It wasn’t to be.

So in her honor I made a small dog tag with the inscription:

Our Best Friend

This afternoon we placed the tag on a cedar tree overlooking her favorite swimming beach on Jekyll Island. Then we scattered some of her ashes on the beach and at the base of the tree.

It was not uncommon for Galaxy to swim in the calm salt water for what seem like 30 minutes. Frequently dolphin would appear nearby as if to protect her.

We miss you very much Galaxy!
