Conner BC Kick the Can 4/15/05-8/19/19

Recommended Posts

Vet is coming this afternoon, I thought I had better write this while I still could.

Conner was the sweetest, easiest dog I ever had. He went along with anything, was always happy, especially if there was food involved. He never met a food he didn't like, except raw carrots. He and his brother Ares were returned to our group due to a death in the family, and I was in the market for a big goofy boy. He was 9, almost 10, just the age I like. His foster mom handed me the leash, said here are the keys, and that was that :) I never in my wildest dreams thought He would still be here with me at 14.4. Unfortunately, his poor old body has just worn out. I wish I could keep him with me forever (don't we all wish that) but we can't control his pain any more, in fairness to him, I have to let him go.

Go find your buddy Rocket, the two of you can sit up in your balcony and complain about the rowdy whippersnappers (Muppet reference) I'll miss you old man :cry1

Conner and Rocket, now there's a fine pair of houndie boys.  :brokenheart I am so sorry that your boy will be leaving. At least he will have Rocket to greet him.

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 heal and 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.

Conner and Rocket were best buddies. Whenever they were together, you just automatically pictured the two old men sitting in the balcony on The Muppets (Statler and Waldorf) and knew that their commentary would be similar.  The two were so much alike, and even looked enough alike that you had to check the collar to make sure who you were petting if you weren't paying close attention

Chris and I met Conner and Ares the day before Jan brought him home.  We were still discussing whether or not to adopt  Conner and how Rocket would take a second dog in the house the next day when I logged in to GT and Jan had made a post showing him on his new couch at her house. I told Chris - "Jan stole our dog." :lol   We had no idea that she even knew about him.  He definitely landed in the right place, as he had his own personal couch.  The next time we saw him, he came to our house, walked in, laid on my feet and went to sleep.   OK - maybe he's partly my dog too....  Ares went on to be adopted by someone else since he really needed to be the only-dog in the house. 

We loved having Conner visit or stay with us. He adopted the love seat in our living room as "his couch" and would lay on his back and watch television for hours. He made us laugh as much as Rocket did.  Rocket loved staying with Conner and Val too. 

Conner, go find Rocket and I'm sure he will show you where Chef Seamie has the good bacon and the ice cream stashed.  There just might be a little more "mayhem" at The Bridge this week.  Love you, buddy. :brokenheart

I'm so very sorry. I hope that he and Rocket are on couches, watching TV, and grumbling about the rowdies.

Godspeed Conner.

I can't add anything to this beautiful and very true post. My deepest sympathy on Conner's crossing over. This post sums up something that my boy Gilly Boy taught when he crossed over and that is that 'even in the hell of grief, love wins."  Conner & Rocket are indeed having a 'blast' (pun intended) and Gilly Boy is there in the 'mayhem' munchin on Seamie nom noms to.  God bless those crazy boy dogs.

Perfect.  But maybe tell a few stories when you yourselves were the rowdy brindle whippersnappers.
