Elmo the teacher

On December 20, 2010, we lost a four-legged family member: Elmo.  He lived here at Pacha Mama House for many months, impishly eating our socks and fervently protecting us from the FedEx guy.  He is already very much missed.
"Life is not a race,
but a journey to be savored,
Each step of the way."

About a year ago, Elmo and I ran a 1-mile charity race known as The Jingle Run; it's a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation.  Back then, I didn't know that canine Arthritis and Cancer would slowly steal Elmo from our family.  If your life has ever been touched by a dog, you know that they teach us, far more than we can teach them.  Elmo was a teacher of loyalty and joy. And we were lucky to be his students.

I am so sorry to hear about Elmo :..( While there are really no words that can heal what you and M feel, please know that Elmo has bounded over that large rainbow in the sky painlessly wagging his tail and knowing that he was blessed to have such a wonderful family. Much love now and always.
