    So sorry for your loss.......I know the pain you're going through and how painful it was to finally say goodbye. He was such a beautiful dog and, I'm sure, a beloved part of your family.

    Thanking us is not necessary, this is just how friends support friends. I just wish I was close enough to get a 6 pack and bring it to toast his memory.

    Got tears in my eyes again. I feel for you, My Friend. We will miss seeing him in your pics, but you shared him with us, and for that we are thankful. I know he will remain in your heart forever.

    Deep breaths and tears, Buddy.

    Take care.

    Fish, I am so sorry for your loss, it is really hard to lose a trusted friend and companion. Been and do that too many times.

    The Creation
    When God had made the earth and sky

    the flowers and the trees,

    He then made all the animals 

    the fish, the birds and bees.


    And when at last He'd finished

    not one was quite the same.

    He said, "I'll walk this world of mine 

    and give each one a name."

    And so He traveled far and wide 

    and everywhere He went,

    a little creature followed Him

    until it's strength was spent.

    When all were named upon the earth

    and in the sky and sea,

    the little creature said, "Dear Lord,

    there's not one left for me."

    Kindly the Father said to him,

    "I've left you to the end.

    I've turned my own name back to front

    and called you dog, My friend."

    I'm sure he enjoyed his last few days with you, which is why he made it to the dock....Sorry to here about the loss, but take solace in the fact that you were a good friend to him.
