Ron Collins, Diana Franklin and many more, lost a best friend “Mimi”, our baby girl Bichon, when she so quickly died on Oct. 3 in Manzanita, Oregon. We learned after her death that so many people have been touched by her life. Mimi was eight weeks old when I brought her home. From the day she arrived in my home in Newport, she brought joy and happiness to the people in my life. Mimi was a therapy dog with the Delta Society Pet Partners and served two wonderful years of making people happy. Mimi visited hospitals, jails, nursing homes and assisted living communities spreading her qualities of unconditional love, trust and understanding. Diana and I are filled with sorrow for her death, but we have the faith that she will oversee us getting a new puppy.
