Two years ago on Father’s Day, I lost my beloved Artemus to a quick illness. We don’t know for sure, but we think it was cancer. This is one of the last pictures I took of Artemus. He is the chocolate Cocker Spaniel on the right, Thor, a min-pin is in the middle, and Artemus’s baby brother Sinjun is the Cocker looking at the camera. These boys were all partners in crime, and the best of friends. Artemus was the nurturer and the leader of the little pack. He had the sweetest nature and he is still very much missed. We still have Thor and Sinjun, and we have been fostering a greyhound mix named Rawhide.
It’s amazing how much love these little dogs give, and I feel so blessed having had Artemus in my life.
