A Fond Farewell To A Friend

This week Tony and I lost one of our beloved Westies who you have seen photos of through the years on this blog. Sherlock had one of the sweetest souls I've ever known and he taught me many lessons. He loved his walks and had to stop and say hello to every person or child he would see along the way. Those walks introduced me to my neighbors over the years where conversations of community issues, rising taxes, and other things eventually led me to run for the Alderman's seat.
This autumn has been a roller coaster of emotions, especially after the Primary results, but we all look ahead and celebrate the good things in life we have as well as the joy and great memories we are left with. I owe a lot to Sherlock for keeping me grounded throughout all of it.

Walking through the neighborhood will never be the same.


  1. Andi - So sorry for your loss. My son walks our Black Lab past your house almost daily and we've seen both of your dogs over the years. It's so sad when you lose a pet. I'm very sorry.

  2. Andi,
    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Sherlock was as lucky to have you as you were to have him.

  3. Unconditional love = our dogs. It is a compliment that he will be missed.
