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
where I will be forever yours and you, forever mine.
And, trust me, the angels are on your side.

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.
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.
