"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Farewell Darby!

It is with a sad heart that I must post a tearful goodbye to Darby. Ch. Windcrest Pilgrim's Pride. Darby crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday, April 24th. I remember fondly the day he was born. I remember Mary Elizabeth and I sitting vigil for the whelping with Chinese Food and a movie. I remember Miracle, his mom, having a bit of a hard time. We put Andrea Boccelli's "Sacred Arias" on the cd player and had low lighting to keep her calm. I remember the first puppy being 'stuck' and having the vet on the phone. It was too late to get her in for a c-section as the puppy was partially out, with the sac off of its face. Mary Elizabeth held her head as the vet guided me through getting the puppy out. Poor Miracle! To this day I still can't believe she didn't bite Mary Elizabeth through the process. Darby and his littermates all grew to be strong and happy puppies. We are so fortunate to have Darby behind some of our Reinwood Corgis. He was a lovebug and all boy.
Mary Elizabeth and Darby. Run free Darby Dog! We will love you forever and a day! xo xo CS
