I love his name and wow was he beautiful.

 

Idol was his kennel name, which we kept. I've always wished I could talk to the person who gave it to him and ask them why they chose it - was it because he was movie-idol handsome? Reminded them of Billy Idol? I wish I knew!

 

Thanks so much everyone for your kind thoughts. The house has been so quiet! No pup around to bark at the neighbors or at the thunderstorm last night ... Pumpkin is a very quiet girl and it almost seems like we don't have a dog around at all. I think she might be a bit depressed too. :(

I'm so sorry, Nancy. He was so lucky to have found you. You took wonderful care of him through all his issues. He is such a beautiful soul- it shines through his photos.

 

Please know that you and Martin are in our thoughts during this difficult time.

I just talked to the photographer we had come to the house and take photos of Idol and Pumpkin a couple years ago. I wanted to find out if I could get another print of a photo of Idol running that she'd taken.

 

She told me that she'd wanted to contact me, but had lost our contact information. She submits photos for publication in various calendars and she had wanted to submit a photo she'd taken of Idol and Pumpkin. There's a field just outside our neighborhood that the owner uses to grow hay on - usually ryegrass and wild mustard. It's very pretty in the spring, with the dark green grass and the yellow mustard blossoms - kind of like this. The photo she is going to submit was taken there. It's for a 2009 pet calendar of some sort. Cross your fingers it gets chosen! She said she'd hear whether it was in October and she'll send us a calendar too.

 

That would make an awfully nice tribute to him.

I'm so sorry. :cry1

 

Since I live with an IBD dog I have to say: I'm glad he was able to enjoy that steak and cheese.

Awww no, Nancy and Martin I am so so sorry that you lost your beautiful boy so young! My Shiloh will be 11 this summer... and Harley has been gone for 5 years! Hard to believe. I know how much it meant to you that Idol turned out to be Roman's great nephew... and I know very well the kind of loving and devoted care you give all your hounds. He was a very special boy.... much white light and hugs from Rhode Island.............

 

luv, Sage and Shiloh WindDancer (nephew of Sir Cedric) Bless

and I have a wonderful photo at home that you took, Sage, of Rob Roy and Harley together, lying back to back ... he (and you) took such good care of Rob when he needed it so much. It's all these dogs that made us love this breed. Even though it hurts so much to lose one, it's so hard to imagine life without one (or more!).
