We've had three dogs over the years so they were perfect for this prompt. Molley was our pre-kids baby. She died at three from cancer in her shoulder. My husband found Joshua in the woods and he and our son grew up together until Josh got hit by a truck when he was seven. Nathan wrote a letter that we buried with the dog. Annie was with us for 15 years.
