Crafty was Mullen even with
his midlife see
he was abandoned and found
underneath our house at about
two months old. This made him
a little jumpy but a fine watch
dog considering he was barely
bigger than my right arm. A mini
terrier mix. None of us ever 
thought Mullen would die, even 
after he got so old he could barely 
walk nor see. One day he just couldn't 
get up. We all new then it was time.
Nothing but the best for Mullen, the 
Vet came out to the house and put 
him down while he was in our arms. 
He has his own special burial spot
in the one acre yard.

    They hold such special places in our heart--places to good for most humans. We tolerate our friends but truly love our dogs.
