Voice of Freedom:

This past week, my fur baby “Miss Zooby” passed away in my arms.  She died of Cancer.  I adopted her two years ago on January 2, 2016 and she passed on January 1, 2018. She was everything to me and it will take some time for me to learn to live with it.  There are 101 reasons why and when I find I am missing her the most, and this too shall pass.  I’m not sure if I will get another dog, and yet I feel like I cannot live without one.  I have always owned a fur baby, but Miss Zooby was the best of all of them, and I had her the least amount of time.  Most of my pets lived to 17 years.  I have no idea of how old she was, for I adopted her from the Waterville Humane Society and they thought she was around 8 years old.  She looked older.  She was found in an abandoned trailer up North by a hunter therefore I had no history of her life before me.  I only know her last two years of life was the best with me.  May you forever rest in peace, Miss Zooby!

On a lighter note, it is snowing and a blowing out there as I look out the window.  Everyone please stay warm, stay safe, check on your neighbors, and pray the weathermen are wrong with their forecast.  I hope you have plenty of water, batteries, candles, food and whatever else with get you through this winter blizzard.,

God Bless!
