April 1999- June 18, 2013
My Dad bought us Diamond a few months after my Mom died, for all of the August birthdays. She loved the kids and our babies; they would snuggle against her tummy or jump up and down on all 80 lbs of her and she would just lick them and sigh with contentment. She was a Japanese/American Akita mix, with luxuriant fur, a loving disposition and a mind of her own. She was a protective, loving, sweet natured, strong willed bear of a dog. She was the best companion a family could want.
Our family was richer because she was our pooch. Rest well, dear friend. We love you.
