That's the name of my Dad's dog and constant companion for the last six years. Last night, sadly, she lost her life when she was hit by a truck. She didn't suffer and it was all over in an instant.
This post is a moment to say thank you to Terra for being my Dad's constant companion and dear friend to both my Dad and Mom for all those years. She was a special dog who was there while my Dad had to work away from home, she was the dog who learned words like she could speak them herself and she was just a wonderful and loving spirit who got along with everyone she met. I only had the chance to spend a bit of time with her but during that brief time I knew she was special - she had a way about her that was warm, kind and genuine. She was always ready to please and never left my Dad's side.
I don't know what else to say about her but for my Dad and Mom, Terra, thank you for being there for both of them and for enriching all our lives, we all loved you and we will all miss you. May heaven be filled with lots and lots of tennis balls for you to chase and chase and chase.
