I got her ashes back today, and I know that some of you might see this as twee or cheesy, but I have always taken great comfort from some sort of ritual when burying my dear dogs, so Wynny will be buried like this, resting on Floyd, just as she so often did in life. I always put up an engraved brass plaque nearby as well, and after many revisions, this is how it will read. It says it all. xx

A week later, when I got her ashes back, I buried them resting on Floyd, just as she had so often done in the preceding weeks. I had a brass plaque engraved with a message which said it all. RIP sweet girl - run free forever.
