Goodbye to Miss Opy

My relentlessly huge heart is breaking.
Miss Opy has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge to join her Angel Charlie.
For those of you new to dog blog land, Opy, and her brother,Charlie, were the founders of the original Dogs with Blogs.
She was an icon in blog land. A wonderful friend to Charlie and a patient sister to Benson.
I don't have words to express my sadness. Run free, Miss Opy. We'll look for your star in the sky, but our stride will be heavy.

I just met Opy, for the first time, when I posted the DWB Christmas video. We'll for sure be keeping her in our thoughts and sending healing thoughts, vibes and mojo.

Thanks for the heads up!
