Our Last Walk
Written for Lucy
AKA Gooey Duck
12/03/1999 – 12/15/2010
It was a cold and wet December morning you had
been ill for a couple of days but you wanted to walk down a path that we have
taken so many times before.
This particular morning you stopped frequently
to look around at the birds and squirrels romping in the tops to the trees. We
stopped by the creek for a drink and walked back home.
It was a great walk and one I will never forget
as just a couple of hours after that walk I had to say good by to you one last
time. You will always be present in my heart.
Until we meet again at the rainbow bridge.

Have you ever loved a Dog?
If you have you know all to well
that there are a couple of days in the life of your Dog that will always
stand out in your heart.
The first is the day you bring home
your new best friend. That Chubby little puppy full of life, and wonder.
She will begin to take over the house, chewing on all your favorite
things. Somehow we overlook all the carnage and fall head over heels in
love with that sweet little face and all is soon forgiven.
As the years pass and life becomes
mundane you can always find your friend at your side. One year fades
into the next and before you know it 8 or 9 years have passed. You look
into the eyes of your faithful friend; then you focus on all the gray
around her eyes and realize that time has passed much faster for her.
There is not much playing and alot
more napping in her life. When she gets up to take her favorite walk
with you, she moves a bit slower and more deliberately. In the back of
your mind you know that time is limited and “That Day” will all too soon
be upon you.
That day you have to make the
ultimate decision to let go. With a heavy heart you choose to end the
suffering of your best friend. No matter how your friend leaves you and
hopefully God made the decision for you, you will feel as if you are the
only person on earth that has lost a best friend like yours. You will
want to cry and don’t hold back because your friend has earned each and
every one of your tears with her dedication and love.

For our Girl Mandy who was
with us for almost 12 years She passed away April 17, 2009 We will miss
This section of this page is for
Coho. Coho was one of our hunting dogs with a Junior hunt title.
Coho was a beloved Friend he was
lost in a tragic accident July of 2006
We will think of you one day in
spring when the wind is blowing through the old apple tree.
We will think of you when we see the
first fallen snow of winter.
We will think of you as we gaze into
your favorite hunting pond on our first hunt of the season.
Most of all we will think of you for
no reason at all.
When it is time for me to go
I know I will see you waiting there
for me at the Rainbow Bridge
Until then go and play free.
We will miss you our fine friend.
We love you.
