Goodbye Schmoo

Schmoo, the wonderful Labrador retriever who was part of  Midwest Chick  and Mr. B. 's family is gone, after a valiant fight with lymphoma.  Saying goodbye to her this weekend was hard, remembering her is easy.

Would we all be like the dog, our pain hidden deep inside
where unkind thoughts and fear and loss are buried with our pride
With someone - stalwart friend, kind soul,
who shows us wrong from right
with rebuke soft, a gentle hand,
unfair judgment far from sight.
Would we know that secret place, where playful thoughts abide,
waiting only for that one true friend, in whom we can confide
- Brigid

Please go on over and offer your support as they grasp this loss. 

Goodbye Schmoo.  You were family and are greatly missed.

Brigid and Barkley
