The first pic I ever took of Hot Rod.I have thousands of pics thanks to having digital.








you were so silly you always made me laugh







when you visited our house you follwed me everywhere even watching me brush my teeth.





the pic that was used in the poster "Winners by a Nose"




your fav spot to catch a sunbeam at our house 2009



I met so many people because of you,Some became close friends


We joined the meet & greet crew at QCGA.You loved all the attention

the more hands petting you the better



you loved hanging out with your houndie friends at meet & greets

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Happy Birthday Hot Rod!


Even though we never got to meet you, you are missed more than many can know, especially with Rocket being one of your many "brudders from anudder mudder." The two of you are very much alike, right down to googly eyes, being silly, and your handsome gray faces.


We think of you every day and see your picture on the Winners By A Nose Poster several times a day as we walk by it.


Happy Birthday sweet boy. You are still making all of us smile, even if there are also some tears involved. Run pain-free. :beatheart:beatheart:beatheart

What a beautiful tribute. I'm too new to have heard Hot Rod stories, but his tribute left me in tears. He was clearly one very special and very loved boy. And I bet it was impossible to say "no" to those adorable, googly eyes!
