My friend, Laury, lost her beloved canine companion, Dali, yesterday. After fourteen years together, it's left a huge hole in her heart. Lucie and I join in mourning Dali's passing. She spent a few months living with us while Laury was working the past two years. She became part of our 'family' as well. Dal had quite a life, though. How many dogs get to call both New Orleans and France home? She will certainly be missed.
