Elroy, my sweet, sweet 14-year-old puppy has passed over the Rainbow Bridge. He had a splenic mass that ruptured, which came as a complete shock to us. We have honored Elroy’s memory by giving another shelter dog, as he once was, a loving and safe home with us, as this was how Elroy was brought into our lives fourteen years ago. An ounce of peace I can grasp is looking into our new shelter pup’s eyes and seeing Elroy stare back at me. Elroy is still and will always be with me.
