Hey after all the fightin and carryin on I caused while on vacation this week, I just gotta cry on some shoulders.
My best buddybeagle had to be put down today. It was double hard cause he was unique for several reasons.
1 He is the only beagle I ever paid for.
2 He is the only beagle I ever owned that would not chase rabbits!!
3 He is the only registered beagle I ever owned
(Donna's Duke of Dozer)
4 He would walk with me all day and watch the others run rabbits, and pace with me while they came around.
5 Last but not least, he was my farm buddy, and went where I went, did what I did, and liked me even when I was a jerk and did dumb things.
Thanx for letting me ramble, I needed it. Donna can only take so much of my whining.

Ron I feel so bad for you, I just cannot imagine how sad my heart would feel if we had to put down one of our dogs. They so much become a member of the family. I had engraved the following on a plaque for one of my friends. Can't engrave it for you but if I could I would my friend!

Dear Master,
You have been my teacher, my friend and most beloved companion. I was like your child, totally dependent on you for all my needs. But I never grew up and moved away as children do, I just grew to love and need you more each day, each month, each year.

I never went hungry because you gave me dinner and gave me water each day. When the weather was bad I found comfort in the warmth and safety of your home. I delighted you by learning tricks, but what you may not have realized is that I loved learning from you because I lived to please you.

The touch of your hand stroking my fur made my life worthwhile. Though I barked at noises in the night, the postman's footsteps and the ringing of the doorbell; the voice of my master was the one sound that I cherished most. Your moods became my moods. When you were sad or lonely, I nuzzled closer to comfort you .

There were times when you became upset with me because I soiled the carpet, chewed on a piece of furniture, or barked too much. But do not feel bad about those times when you scolded me - I needed to learn right from wrong, and I always understood when things weren't going your way or when you'd had an unpleasant day at work. There is no need for you to harbor guilt or remorse on my behalf.

You loved me and blessed me with more happiness than most animals will ever know. Instead of wondering what you could have done differently, remember the funny things I did and the happy times we shared together. Though it is hard for you to understand, I was ready to pass on from this life.

Our time together was short, but if we'd had fifty years together, you still would have not been ready for me to leave.

So please, Master, share your life with others. Do not refuse the opportunity to give another lucky pet the love you have given me. No other animal will ever take my place in your heart, but there is another one who needs you and will grow to love you as much as I did.

I am now at peace and no longer feel pain. You gave me a wonderful home and a happy existence on this earth. So please be happy - go on with your life and give your love to others.

Although I no longer share your world, I will always live in your heart, and you in mine.

Farewell, Dear Master.

You can be sure that this one is printed out and saved! I am usually not too mushy over my animals but this one got to me.
Ron and Donna
