My Sweet Alice
One life...a gazillion photos, countless drawings and paintings, boundless love and joy. So sad to tell you that Alice is no longer with me, but so grateful for having had her lovely spirit in my life. She brought a smile to the face of every person that had the good fortune to meet her!
Alice arrived at our front door on September 4, 2004 in the arms of a volunteer from Chicago Canine Rescue. Her whole litter had been found in an alley next to a dumpster...we had been talking about getting a 2nd dog and decided maybe a foster would be a good way to test it out. Izzy (10 at the time) was certainly not thrilled with this little gal that turned our house upside down, stole all of her toys and the attention - but in the end she was Izzy's ears and constant companion.
August 2011, Alice and I, the first night in our tiny new apartment. She was by my side through one of the biggest transitions of my life...can't imagine having gone through it, without her!
I took these last 3 photos with my phone a week before she died, she was so adorable and peaceful sleeping in my bed. I had no idea they would be the last ones of us together. By now, I'm sure she's busy tearing it up in doggy heaven...so I won't say rest in peace, just run and play, my sweet, silly Alice!
