A goodbye to my little friend

Six months ago, on March 12, my little dog H passed away. I was very lucky to have this mini schnauzer in my life for 15 years. She has, and will always be, an inspiration for the fictional dog, Laude, in my Nathan Miccoli Mystery series.


My mother always said she should have lived with seven year old twin boys. But I disagree. She was always meant to be with me. She was the calmest spirit I’ve ever met. She never met a stranger. People are still stopping me in my neighborhood to ask for her.

She loved every holiday — she would wear a Halloween costume and never fuss. Here she is in her favorite, the Snow Queen. (In other years, she was Mickey Mouse, a student at Hogwarts–she’s a Hufflepuff of course, a bumblebee, a witch…the list goes on as does the photographic proof:)


She was my little Easter bunny too (& would get into everyone’s Easter baskets!)fullsizeoutput_110

It has been six months without her and I still miss her everyday.

She will be missed. Always.
