To all:

It was a sad day for my daughter Emma, and our family. Caesar was a wonderful dog and a true friend to everyone who he came in contact with. I thought of him as my grand-dog. We will all miss him. This picture was taken by Emma and recaptured with Sue's pastel portrait of him. I am so pleased that Sue was able to capture his likeness and that he will for ever have a home on her website.
