For Nipa

There are various places where one can bury a dog. You my friend are now digging a grave in your garden...

Sweet Brair, whose coat was flame in the sunshine, and who was one of your best friends in her very special own way. She is buried beneath one meter of garden loam .... Perhaps beneath an olive tree, or an apple... Actually any flowering shrub of the garden, is an excellent place to bury a good dog. Beneath such trees, such shrubs, she slept in the drowsy summer, or gnawed at a flavorous bone, or lifted head to challenge some strange intruder. These are good places, in life or in death.

She will leap through your dreams as actual as in life, eyes kindling, questing, asking, laughing, begging, it matters not at all where Briar sleeps. On a hill where the wind is unrebuked and the trees are roaring, or beside a stream she knew in puppyhood. It is all one to Briar, and all one to you, and nothing is gained, and nothing lost -- if memory lives.
Actually there is only one place to bury a dog. ....One place that is best of all.

I know she is buried at that very spot for she is yours and she belongs there.
Sweet Briar rest in peace in the heart of your master.

I'm sure wherever she is buried she'll bring new life for all of you to enjoy ... and fondly remember. *gentle hugs*
