Farewell, Siri

This is Siri's happy face. Siri was the woofie brother of Piglet and Grover. He moved in with them in December of 2004 when the Mom fell in love and got married to Siri's Dad. Siri and Grover really liked each other, but this was Piglet's reaction to Siri:

As you can imagine, Siri was not too pleased with this reaction and it was decided that the cats and dog needed to be kept separated. The dog got the three front rooms and the cats got the back three rooms. Siri was happy because the front rooms have the doors that lead outside. Grover and Piglet were happy because their part of the house includes the bedroom with all the great napping spots. Siri loved the Mom, but he loved the Dad even more. Siri also adored eating, well, anything really, but he loved French fries best. Siri also liked to bite. He offered to bite Piglet in two after Piglet swatted him in the face a couple of times, but the Mom managed to stop him in time. I don't know how many people Siri bit, but he did bite his Mom at least once. Despite the biting, Siri was basically a happy dog and quite a character. He is really being missed.

                                 Siri was a dog who loved to bite.
                                 He could really clamp down tight.
                                       Now he's running free
                                       At the Bridge and we
                                 Mourn the dog who loved to bite.

There is never a good time to lose someone we love. I am so very sorry about Siri's passing and send my deepest sympathy. We could have one hundred years with someone we love and we would still ask for another day...
