Goodbye, Wilson

Blogger: Life & Times of the Acklin Army, Squirrel Hill

We will miss him forever.  We are so thankful for having him for 14 years.  He taught me how to be a mom and I'm so grateful for all the years, all the memories, all the times he was there to lick my tears and make me laugh.  The beauty of a dog is that they ask for nothing, not one thing, but for your love and acceptance.  And they give you an ocean of love and memories in return.
