Alan & I are heartbroken--he was definitely a mamma's boy and by my side whenever I was home! He always greeted Alan when he got home from work like it as the best thing to happen to him all day!
|Yesterday we put our wonderful dog, Rafe to sleep. He's been sick for some time--having diabetes, lyme disease and a host of other problems. Over the last month he has steadily gone down hill & this week he couldn't get up the 3 stairs to get in the house--and then couldn't get to the back door. Mind you he weighed just over 100 pounds so it's not like we could pick him up.|
|I don't think a week went by without me taking photos of him--I even had taken some yesterday morning before we had decided to put him down. This one of him with his best bud, Squeak was one of my all time favorites! I hope that Squeak was waiting for him at the Rainbow Bridge!|
If you'd like to see more photos from over the 10+ years of his life, just put "Rafe" in the search box in the upper left hand corner of the page--I didn't realize how many posts I had done about him!
