OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE


~ DIO ~
The First Grand Dog
Born October 2005 ~ Adopted December 2006 ~ Over the Rainbow Bridge June 5, 2020

During my many years of living in Florida (on the East coast) and going over to the Orlando area to visit my son, daughter in law and two grandchildren ~ I'd always enjoy a cuddle and hug with this big ole teddy-bear of a dog, Dio.  The one-ear-up Dio!  
I do not think there is a photo in my files of Dio, alone or with either of my grands, taken during his 14-years, where there is not one-ear-up and one-ear down: t'was his signature look!  And his signature behavior: soft and gentle, laid back, loving.  But his time came, 
as it does for all.  Farewell, handsome boy.  May you rest well and healthy, beyond the rainbow.  You were loved.
