“Do not go gentle into that good night

Rage, rage against the dying of the light”

~ Dylan Thomas

My perfect girl, my dream, my soul,

Who taught me everything, and more

Too bright, too quick to learn for most

You challenged all the world with “why”

But woke each day and asked “why not”

Never waiting for me, for permission

Why would you start now?

The epitome of a life well lived

Author of your own rules from the first

To the last. Defiant. Unyielding. Love.

  1. Such great words for your girl. So grateful that I got to spend time watching her grow on her scent work journey. I have great memories of her in her little bandana, much loved, much missed. xxx
