I adopted Flash 3 years ago at one of the Tri State Basset adoptions in Quakertown. I knew she was the one as soon as we walked in the door. She came over and immediately rolled over for belly rubs. When we took her home, she found the sofa and became one of the family. We took walks twice a day and in the afternoon she would greet the kids coming home from school. I called them her “posse”. She came to know all the dogs and cats in the neighborhood. She was very social and treated everyone like her best friend. I was devastated to find lumps on her neck in August. They turned out to be lymphoma. She was gone in 3 weeks. She was only 9. We had too short of time together but I will always remember the days with Flash.
