Not a good day when I think of you. I cannot believe it's been 10 months. I miss my boy. Darcy is doing really well. She actually let me rub her ears and rolled on her side... I was thrilled. Grunt passed his STAR classs. He's doing really well and makes me laugh.

10 months, 10 freakin months - just sucks Turner...

Talked to the State Licensing about your case. Your case was assigned to a prosecutor. I'm hoping that's good news. I hope we go for a hearing. I would love to look at him as his world crumbles just like ours did.

Miss you Turner, love you..



Happy New Year Mr. Man

I miss you terribly! I'm glad 2011 is over, it sucked. I lost more friends and friends dogs to cancer, motorcycle accidents and heart issues. It sucks - period. Remember Mojo? That's when I learned about reactive dog issues - he passed and then 6 months later his brother Max passed. So sad...

So for 2012 I hope that things get better. I hope. I hope that I go to the Licensing Board and my complaint against that mean ol vet gets found in our favor. I hope that Grunt continues to learn and be a good boy. I hope that Darcy continues to come out of her scarey world. I hope that life gets just a little bit better...


Merry Christmas Turner - Miss You!

Miss you so much! The house isn't the same - no presents for you to open. You loved opening presents. I put a tree up but that is pretty much it. Just not in the spirit without you. I'm ready to take it down now.

You sent us Grunt and he's a good boy. Thank you. He sticks right by me when I'm home. I'm using your Gentle Leader on him and hoping your spirit is still there to teach him.

I'm sorry you had to suffer with cancer. We never knew and I'll live with the memories of you crying in pain and being uncomfortable. It haunts me to no end. I'm so sorry. :(

I hope you're up there somewhere with the girls (we love and miss them also) but you were my special one, my once in a lifetime one. We haven't had much snow this year. You saw more snow that most dogs we know! Darcy is doing good. Grunt keeps her on her toes and they play and sleep together during the time I'm at work. Grandpa met Grunt and was pretty rude to him and now Grunt doesn't trust him. I wish grandpa would realize that Grunt is not you. Grandpa loved you so much also. He bought you a toy before you died and you never got it. He still has it as far as I know. So maybe you could send some magic down to grandpa for us? Thanks bud.

Well Turner, I've got to get ready for work. It takes my mind off of alot of things that make me sad right now. There is no snow on the ground and it's cold, just not how it should be. We love you Turner and miss you so much. Merry Christmas!

Love to you my boy,

Mom and Dad

You've been gone, I still think of everything that happened. I still cry when dad isn't around to see. I still hurt thinking about you not being here. It still sucks not holding, walking, talking, just being with you. I wish we never moved here, would you still be with us if we stayed in Texas? I'll never know...

Love you Turner,

State investigators came yesterday and talked to me and dad for almost 1 1/2 hours. It was interesting to say the least. They had lots of questions and me and dad and plenty of answers. Now we wait, again. They have to have their "expert" verify all of the information and then they will determine weather to pursue it further legally. We have our fingers crossed. I have to say I did pretty good, I only cried a few times. The investigators were very patient with me and were also impressed with the information and evidence we had against the mean vet. So, Turner, we are still trying to get justice for your undue suffering. We love you and miss you terribly...

The investigator will be out on Monday to gather/confirm the information and discuss our case. No other dog or owner should go through what we went through. Hopefully we'll win our case...


Possible Closure Soon....

Daddy called me at work tonight. He said that there was a message on the answering machine. It was the Investigator on your case. I have to call him tommorrow to discuss the complaint against that mean vet. Hopefully we can hold him accountable for you suffering with cancer the way you did. My fingers are crossed that things will go our way.


Six Months...

Six months ago your dad and I made the hardest decision ever, to let you go to heaven free of cancer. I still cry when I think of that horrible day. But I know we made the right choice. To let you suffer would've been wrong.

I'm at Chincoteague today. I needed a break and a breather. Aunt Jackie and I are here at a house we rented. It's beautiful. We got to the beach just after sunset.

Aunt Jackie brought Buster's ashes and will release them to the winds this week. I can't do that. I can't part with you, she's so brave to set her boy totally free. I was stunned when she told me she had Buster Boy with her. I understand the need to free...

You're case is still under investigation with the State Licensing Board. I will not sleep until that man is held accountable for all of the pain he caused you, me and your dad.

I'm going for sunrise tommorrow, time to yell at God for taking you away from me too soon. Maybe one day I'll forgive him, not now though. We had things to do for the next several years and he robbed me of that so I'm a little pissed. You had to leave too soon. Maybe that's selfish of me, but it's how I feel. When I say you were my best friend you know what I mean.

I love you Turner, my Mr. Man, my best friend, and miss you so much.



We have a new guy in the house, his name is Grunt. He is no substitute for you, no dog could ever replace you. But he is a good boy. He is so quiet and calm for a pitbull. I believe people when they say you sent him to us. He is Baby, Boomer and you wrapped up in one! When he gets the zoomies he reminds me of you so much. He's brought sun back into our dreary existance and is healing your family. Needless to say he has a big job ahead of him.
