As grandparents of a young grandson, we were “done” with having pets. But then later God brought into our lives our 2 grandsons and we ended up adopting them! Since boys need a dog, we decided to adopt Sparkle, our little rat terrier. She brought over 13 years of companionship and fun to our family, making us laugh when she played tetherball with us and baseball and chased the sprinkler. It’s been almost 3 weeks since Sparkle left us and we miss her a lot, but are thankful for the photos we have that remind us how delightful she was. Here’s one of her funny poses.

A donation was made in Sparkle's memory and the memorial was created on January 3, 2019.
