The Mighty Flynn

Flynn's last day
Black and silver and handsome, he would have been 12 today but was laid to rest 3 days before his birthday. Born May 22, 2001, heart failure took him too soon.
I knew him from before birth to after death. Defiant and loving, he was a great adventurer even when we wish he wasn't. To his last days he never passed up an opportunity to squeeze through a fence or dash out the door, always to find his way back grinning happily. A snuggler and a hugger, I loved you and will miss you Flynn.
