A good life, a full life...
...I guess that's what any of us hope for.
Babe passed away yesterday evening at the age of 15 1/2. She was born on our farm in Athens, GA and she was named by Mallory and Morgan after the "pig" movie. Until we moved her to the mountains of Tennessee in September of 2010 she had rarely left the farm with only the exception of a few vet visits. I wondered how the stress of our move to the mountains would affect her but in true form she embraced our new life. I worried about her possibly getting lost so we kept an eye out when we would let her out. She soon came up with her version of a small walk-a-bout and would be back at the door within about 10 minutes. And she LOVED the snow! Something about the snow brought out a "puppiness" in her. She would roll in it, romp and run in it or sometimes just rub her face in it.
She will be missed but I know she had a good life, a full life and one in which she was loved!
