It is with a heavy heart that I write this post.


Tony was sent to the bridge today. He was a kennel pet who had a spirit stronger than any grey I have ever met. His spirit was so strong, that his aging body could not keep up.

Tony, you were the highlight of my time in the kennel. I loved to see you, and would count the days before I'd see you again. I hope we made your journey to the Bridge a peaceful one. I know you are running in the wind, pain free, with a young body that doesn't wobble or stiffen up.


I love you Tony. I know Chip and all of those who have gone before you are there to greet you with wags and sniffs.


From Alfred Lord Tennyson (excerpt from In Memoriam)


Henceforth, wherever thou may'st roam,

My blessing, like a line of light,

Is on the waters day and night,

And like a beacon guards thee home.

So may whatever tempest mars

Mid-ocean, spare thee, sacred bark;

And balmy drops in summer dark

Slide from the bosom of the stars.

So kind an office hath been done,

Such precious relics brought by thee;

The dust of him I shall not see

Till all my widow'd race be run.
