2009/365/272 Memories of Mickey
Today marks the day that Mickey, the lab who is my logo/icon on every web site, passed over to Rainbow Bridge.
Gentle and sweet as he was with humans, as it turns out Mickey had an aggressive streak towards small dogs, and he went after them with a scary violence. It could not be curbed by shock collars or pet therapy, and the day before this day in 2003 he went too far.
I keep his collar hanging on a tree above the rock he loved to stand on, acting like king of the world.
