I wish we had gotten you sooner.  I wish we had been able to do more.  We tried to show you an awesome  year. 
Wineries, greyhound meet and greets and parties.  We showered you with marrow bones, cookies, ice cream and wonderful goodies.  We tried to make up for the years you spent in isolation and deplorable conditions.  We made sure you were always warm, fed, flea free and happy since you had years without any of that.  We hope you forgot the bad stuff that happened before us (first days blog here)..and remember all the fun we had this last year.  We showed you what retirement was supposed to be like..You were a good old man..cancer sucks.  I wish we had more time... 

Run pain free, my old man.

 We will miss you.

Oh, I am so sad to read this! Shane had the best year of his life with you, thank goodness. He deserved a lifetime with you! I'm so very sorry!

Sue said...

I am so sorry. I'd hoped he would have had longer with you, but know his time there would have been wonderful. Bless you for giving him the chance to know how loved he was.

Run free Shame. Say woof to my Song.

Such a sweet old man. You hit the jackpot when Trina took you in. We will all miss your 'pimp walk'.

What Remains Now said...

Oh, Shane. So glad you found your perfect home and got to enjoy it. I love the picture of you frolicking around in the yard. I can't imagine how much you'll be missed. Rest in peace, Shane. Sweet Shane.

My deepest sympathy to your whole family, Trina. Your dear tribute made me cry buckets. What a boy.

Michelle said...

Very sorry for your loss. He was a sweet boy.

RETA said...

OH MY GOODNESS . . . a heart-breaker to say, "good-bye" - but you are full of sweet memories. Your life is richer because of him.
