Yesterday I learned of the death of a dear friend at age 13 years, 9 months. This one has four legs and is very hairy and her name is SPIRIT. I met her owner a few years ago when she received a Rough-legged Hawk from me for use in her educational programs in California. (see links, Native Bird Connections). Since then Jenny has also taken three other raptors and survived breast cancer. Now this latest blow is the most devastating.
SPIRIT was just that, a wonderful dog, never met a stranger, and brought such joy to all. As you can see in the above photos, Jenny and SPIRIT came here on a vacation and this amazing dog became a foster mom to Ms. FRIZZ, a banty hen. This loving dog will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
