November 2, 1998 - June 23, 2007
Today, we lost a faithful friend to the ravages of Valley Fever, a disease unique to only two areas in the world. Although our beautiful boy could be a stinker, we loved him very much, and had to make a very difficult decision to end his life peacefully and humanely. Although we weren't there when he was born, he most likely popped into the world with tail wagging, and left it the same way. We know he will be waiting for us on the Rainbow Bridge when our time comes to enter Heaven. He loved all creatures, and seemed sure that every human on Earth was put here to love him back. He also loved food, and learned to open the pantry door--along with any other door in the house. Although much of our house looked empty because he would take down and eat anything within six feet of the floor, it was full of his very big heart. We miss him already.
