Bert... Betabuckburt Aka The Bert Of Doofbert

I've not been able to post here. It's the end of an era..... Bert earned his angel wings, here in Texas -- in my arms with the Daddieman at his side.

 

Bert slowed down over the past few months.... not as many stuffies were slayed. But, he kept the sofas from levitating and played fun police when the younger hounds were too loud in the family room. He enjoyed romp in the yard every day or so. But suddenly, he was off his food and refused his meds for his LS. He ignored the noise of the young ones. He fell more each day and lost the ability to make to the play yard for the necessary.

 

We went over to our vets on the scheduled day/time. It was a sunny day. I left Bert off leash for a walk across the field. He explored the various smells (the field is used to walk horses) and turned in unison with me as I walked toward the office. We knew it was time for his journey to the Bridge. It was peaceful.

 

Bert came to us because we asked for him. I was able to see him in live race from Wonderland, right before he retired. I didn't care if he won or not.... but I sat in awe of his speed and his power.After his retirement, he went to the breeding farm, but one day I rc'd a call from Lindaj.... she let me know that Bert would be pet and asked if we wanted him..(We had his littermate, Sir D (aka Doofie). Augut 11, 2004 -- Bert's Gotcha Day.

 

I'll remember our Bert this way -- he never slept on the bed at home.... but was the first hound on the bed in any hotel room!

 

And the Doof+Bert in the snow....

 

The brudders are now together with Tessa and Bacchus.... having Pocono Black Party at the Bridge!

 

Run fast and Run Free Bert..... lead the black pack through the stars..... and, remember to send us some love in Texas!
