On July 18, 2006 we lost our sweet little Norman. He was old and frail and just couldn't hang on any longer. We miss him so terribly. I just can't even imagine life without him now and I'm living it. I look for him everywhere and I think I hear his bark. I hope we knows how much we loved him and how much we miss him. He was the best little dog in the world. Mark, Henry and I have been walking around like zombies for 2 days - just not sure what to do with ourselves. We cry all the time and can't seem to get back to normal. I know life will never really be normal without him. He was such a joy and a love. I miss him greeting me when I get home from work; I miss how he would sit under my chair at dinner waiting for any little morsel to drop; I miss how he would nudge his way into the bathroom and lay on the rug while I took a shower; I miss how he would give us love bites on our nose if we got down on the floor; I miss how he would run around in circles when we got home showing us how happy he was to see us; I miss how he would get so excited that he would run around the coffee table as fast as he could go. He was a joy - he touched so many peoples lives and I really miss him more than I can express. Bye Norman - Love you.
