Artist's Description

This is Haley and she is sitting at the grave of a very dear friend name Petey. She is touching his collar that has been placed around his grave marker. Petey was an Australian Shepard/Border collie, he was the best dog and he was killed in an accident on March 9, 2012.
I got this shot the other day while we were outside, I was a good distance away from her, she didn’t know I that I had taken it until later that evening.

I wasn’t going to post it due to the fact that she is crying and it just seemed like a personal moment that she was having with her friend. Yesterday though, Haley asked me when I was going to post it and I explained to her why I hadn’t yet and why I was apprehensive about doing so at all. She said “Mom, it’s ok, I want you to post it, there is nothing wrong with everyone knowing how much I loved Petey”.

My daughter is so beautiful .

The lyrics below are from the Song “Over You” by Miranda Lambert. We were watching the video to this song when we got the news that Petey had been killed. Every time the song comes on the radio now, I see her taken back to that night when she lost her friend. Haley and Petey were close, they spent a lot of time together. For those who do not know, Petey belonged to our friends Rick and Raeanne, they live on the same property as us, about a hundred feet away is all. Petey was part of our family too and he is missed more than words could ever express.

Weather man said it’s gonna snow
By now I should be used to the cold
Mid-February shouldn’t be so scary
It was only December
I still remember the presents, the tree, you and me

But you went away
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

Living alone here in this place
I think of you, and I’m not afraid
Your favorite records make me feel better
Cause you sing along
With every song
I know you didn’t mean to give them to me

But you went away
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

It really sinks in, you know, when I see it in stone

Cause you went away,
How dare you?
I miss you
They say I’ll be OK
But I’m not going to ever get over you

If you have the time, I encourage you to watch the video below of this most incredible song.
