Our Friend Brooklyn
It was a summer day and we were over visiting our Dad. When we got there, he had a new dog. She was a mix between a black lab and a bull mastiff. We were happy to have another pet after our cats had run away. When we played ball, she would run half way and we would have to get the ball for her. Instead of ball, she liked getting into the garbage, chewing her Kong, her bone and our stuffed animals. One night she jumped over our fence to chase a rabbit, she came back to the front door and knocked with her paws. We wanted to make her feel at home so we crawled into her new crate, she started to sneeze and it looks like she was laughing at us.
Over the years she has gotten into trouble but we always loved her and she loved us. Brooklyn passed away suddenly on Tuesday April 2, 2013.
Our whole family misses her so much and we have been crying a lot. We love you Brooklyn!

Ada Kuehner, 1921-2003, "Mommy" to Josephine and the five girls who loved Josephine.
Today Josephine was put to rest, to spare her more pain and discomfort. We all feel, I think, that she earned the right to an easy departure, for growing up with the family as a companion, playmate, and guardian, she lived a full life.
I always felt she was unusually bright (like all my girls), and had a special personality, a sense of humor, as in the "karate shots" she would give one from the rear, or her playful "hat-snatching attacks" in which she would pull the girls stocking-caps off, and an independence of personality, as she took every chance to go exploring.
