September 9, 1996 to September 19, 2009

Now who will lead our carnival?
And who will make us stronger?
Who will mend our broken sleep when she is here no longer?
For who's part do we stand and bow?
What stories do we tell?
And will we memorize the day when great and greatness fell?
Say will this valley overcome, and will these shadows fade?
And will we lift our eyes to see the beauty that she made?
The disappearing last of her that leads to worlds unknown,
has left a path to softly tread when sadness wanders home.
I'll meet thee where the highland winds divide wild mountain tyne,
where I will be forever yours and you, forever mine.
And, trust me, the angels are on your side.

This picture was taken on Garnet's 12th Birthday

Garnet was my very special girl.  She was the first chow I bred.  I delivered her all by myself in my home.  She was the light of my life and my best buddy.  She even slept with me at night.  She loved to play fetch and loves her toys.  She was my silly lil clown.

Garnet has her International Championship and only lacks her majors towards her AKC title with multiple Best of Breed wins from the classes.  She also earned her Canine Good Citizen Award.
