Having a dog will bless you with many of the happiest days of your life, and one of the worst. My worst was this week. You were the greatest friend I’ve ever known Duncan and I’ll miss you more than words can express. Coming home to your wiggle butt and goofy smile was the highlight of my day for 7 years. Your cuddles got me through the darkest of nights and and your kisses made for the brightest of days. You explored the world with me with endless curiosity and boundless joy. If I could be half the person you were Duncan, I’d be twice the human I am. You were the bestest of boys and part of my heart went with you on that sad day. I love you Duncan. Rest in peace my sweet boy. I hope this donation can help a few of his boxer brethren.

To my lifelong friend Evelyn Dilley Irwin, who passed away in Pine Bluff, AR on February 3, 2012, and who requested that memorials be made to the Eve Dilley Memorial here at NorCal Boxer Rescue.

And what a fitting tribute it is because, although Eve loved me, she loved her boxers more. My dear sweet Eve, how I miss you.
