Farewell Sweet Girl

On Saturday May 16, 2009 our sweet girl Mallory passed away. We are going to miss her so much. She was our first dog as a family and will always hold a very special place in our hearts. She was one of the sweetest dogs I have ever known. Her mild manner with the kids was amazing! Both Hailey and Athena tried to ride her at some point in their lives, and there were many times they would use her as a pillow! Mallory enjoyed snacking on hats and books in her youth and we often joked that her favorite was Charlotte's Web because she ate not one but two copies. She loved the snow and probably missed Utah more than the rest of us. She would prance through the yard like a deer after it had snowed. She never really understood that she was a Labrador retriever, she hated the water and never really brought anything back that was thrown. I will miss having to dodge her on the kitchen floor when I am cooking dinner, or on my way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Though she will be missed very, very much we are so thankful we had her in our lives for 13 wonderful years!
