D is for Dove...my departed but beloved dog

I miss her still.  It's been almost 2yrs and my heart still aches when I dwell on that fact.  She was 12 1/2 years old and she was my best friend.  The pet above all other pets.  Dove was friendly, gentle, loving, warm and STUBBORN.  I guess she inherited that gene from me.  I adopted Dove when she was 8 1/2 weeks old from the local animal shelter.    Her full grown ears looked funny against her puppy body.  She was half terrier and half cocker.  She LOVED to chase.  It didn't matter if it was a squirrel or a bug. She one time chased down an injured bird and ate part of it and scared the beejebbers out of me.  She often made me laugh.  She had an incredible sense of humor.  I could go on and on about that wonderful dog, but I don't want to bore you.  Below are some pics of my "baby:
