the time of Ting

Earlier this summer, the Taylor’s much loved pug, Ting, passed away. She was 14.

Springtime of the year is all around us and we say good-bye to our beloved Ting, who has lived at the heart of our family for the past 14 years, a time of great love and growth for us. We surrender her spent body to the front yard to lie next to her pal Ray, remembering the days in springtime past when they wrestled in the dappled sunlight outside the laundry room. Such a true and pure love she brought to our years together: the time of Ting.
