Desti, short for "Destitute" was a stray that showed up at our house 16 years ago...My husband and I were gone for the day and we were having our carpet cleaned. Desti walked in the front door while he was doing the cleaning and assumed that she belonged to us. When we came home we were quite surprised to say the least. We called the dog warden and he picked her up the next a.m. He advertised in the local paper for 2 weeks, when no one claimed her we went back and adopted her..She was about 3 months old at the time. Desti was our best friend and a member of our family. We took her every where with us despite her size (part shepard,collie and husky) She went sailing with us and also on all our road trips. This picture was taken on Halloween a couple of years ago. She used to love to meet the kids at the door when they were out trick or treating...hoping to get a few treats herself. We had to put Desti down on May 16, 1998. It's been a month today that she's gone..I feel as though someone has torn my heart out...I don't think I will ever be the same...We shared so much together.
