These are the dogs that have gone away in body,
Part of the contract humans have with dogs is that we will feed them, we will shelter them, we will take care of them. In turn they will work for us, they will love us. What cannot have been in the contract when it was written was how much we would love them and how hard it would be to say goodbye.
A big boy with an even bigger heart that gave out way too soon and who had the loudest bark in the World.
The sweetest dog you ever met. She never met a pet she didn't like and she liked to steal kisses.
Laska and Murron
He came to us at 12, gave us 2 pups,
All dogs are good dogs, each in their own way, but some are better. Dawson was one of the best, indoors, outdoors, everywhere.
A show ring champion who, for us, was the hardest working wheel dog ever. He "screamed" to pull.
If she could have stood still, she would have been an AKC Champion; but if she could have stood still, she wouldn't have been Frankie.
She came to us when 9 mos. young and made our lives all the better because of her. Thank you!
Oscie came to us for the second phase of his active life, when he was 8 years of age: happy, healthy, loving with a great attitude and lots more time and miles to spend on the trails. He was no longer fast enough to remain on the competitive "A team" as a "racer" as in his previous years and since I was no longer racing that was fine.
Thank you Gail Castonguay, Kim Berg and Kelly Berg for the joy, love and fun we had with Oscie in our family for the past 5 happy healthy years of his life. Thank you for raising, socializing, loving and training him and all else you provided and did to make him such a great, happy, loving, well behaved "easy keeper"--on and off the trail.
Rationally, I know he had a good, long, adventure-filled, happy, active life in all the seasons--with all of us--but that didn't make it any easier to say farewell to him.
Osceola was as strong as his name--and he is leaving as deep a hole in my heart as he did in the snow that he loved and frequently preferred to sleep in.
