    Lost a friend

    Well it has been a difficult week as our miniiture Schnauzer of 14 yrs (Skipper)had to be put down last sunday. He was sick and had developed cushing disease as well as Diabetes and things went from bad to worse for him. When the end came he went in my loving wifes arms. He was very special to us and his previous papa was a captain of one of the gulf island ferries and he passed from us a few years back so we feel that as we said good bye Al was on the other side welcoming him home. He is now beside Al in heaven helping captain the ferry there.

    This link was sent to me from a friend and it brought me to tears as I envision Al being there for him now. Skipper was a very special part of our family here.

    After Skipper passed we called up a friend that owns a pet cremitorium and arranged to have Skipper done and I will be turning an urn for him in the coming weeks. I will post it when it is done and i hope it turns out the way that I envision it.

    Very sorry to see the news, Drew. I can truly empathize. The little critters sure can work their way into our hearts, huh? I've learned there's never a dog quite like the last one, but there's also never a dog quite like the next one, either.

    Drew,
    Sorry for your loss, and I DO know how you feel. Shana (see avatar, above) is second only to my wife in importance (and attachment) to me, and I hope for many more years of her loving companionship.

    Her predecessor, Schultz, was with us for fourteen years, and I still miss him.

    We also have another schnauzer, Bitsy, who's now about thirteen and beginning to fail. I suspect we'll be losing her in the not too distant future and that will be a true loss. We rescued Bitsy when she was a young adult, and she immediately attached herself to my wife. She merely tolerates me...

    Again, my condolences.

    Drew, sorry about your dog passing on. Hope the urn turning helps in the healing process.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Drew sorry to hear. Losing a god friend is a pleasant thing to do. But we all do. I had a Skippy once long ago and this post reminded me of him.
