I knew you'd understand. Amazing how a photo can cause such a wild swirl of emotions, isn't it? So often I'll still think "Oh, I must tell Millie," and then realize that she's no longer here. Do you know she never saw the www in action through a computer, but she saw the results of the COTH BB time and again and met quite a few members.
Who ever out there thinks that beauty belongs just to the young is out of their cotton-pickin' mind. The beauty of that snap is not only in every line...of each...but also comes from within.
"We each owe a death..." and HOW we arrive at that destination, whether King or pauper, is another matter completely. I just hope, and pray, it will be close to where Millie and Copper were when their picture was taken.
Thanks, Coreene ... it's a wonderful gift you've shared.

She saw his Thousand Yard Stare and raised the alarm. I got there, saw it too, called the vet and then said to Millie "No heroics, we're done." Very matter of fact shes said "Welll of course. This it be right." A very warm ray of sunshine from a true horsewoman. A toast to all our gallant friends!
