Licorice

May 5, 1991 – May 10, 2011

The Empress of the Garden has left our garden for one much more beautiful.  Thanks for keeping the varmint population down.  Thanks for keeping any other pet of the garden in line.  Thanks for hanging around so loyally for 20 years.  I’ll miss you.  Tell everyone “hi”.  Dang it.

You can read a light hearted remembrance of Licorice posted by her original human.  Pets are a wonderful thing.

Thanks all. Losing a pet is a brief but sharp part of enjoying an animal. Their conpanionship is worth the sting.

May she find sunbeams to curl up in wherever she goes.
