   Leave a bone for Moe- June 1993-December 2004

Nicknames:
Moe Moe, Mosey Boy, Moses

Likes:
Moe loved sitting by the woodstove fire and being pet by my Mom. He always jumped at the chance to go chase birds in the fild with Dad too!

Pet-Peeves:
Moe never liked being left, whether he was left at home, in the truck or in his kennel he just wanted to be with you.

Favorite Food:
Any type of table scraps were fine with him. Moe would hear dinner being served and take his place next to a chair and beg for some small bit of charity you might be able to spare.

Favorite Walk:
Moe lived on a huge farm and had the many acres to run and play as he wished, but mainly preferredto lay next to the couch.

Best Tricks:
Tricks? Moe was not a dog that really tried to entertain anyone.

Arrival Story:
Our family purchased Moe from Grouse Ridge Kennels in upstate New York and he traveled all the way to Hawaii as a young pup. He stayed in quarrantine for four months! During his time there our family flew over several times to the neighboring island of O'ahu to visit him at the kennel. He seemed to take to us right away, uh except to my brother. Moe, we beleive, disliked Jonathon's large fro hair stlye. He barked and growled and made such a commotion that all the other dogs in the row went crazy! After all the waiting and traveling Moe finally made his way to our farm Kapahi Kennels on Kauai.

Bio:
Moe had one claim to fame, he won 1st place in the Derby Competition of the Garden Isle chapter of the American Field Trial Association. After that win I think he felt like he had proved himself as a worthy champion, much to the dismay of trainer/ bird hunter father. Nonetheless, we loved him the same. We knew that Moe was meant to be our dog. About two years after we got him he ran off during a training excerise in the Cane fields of Anahola. We looked for him for a week with no luck. We drove down every road calling his name and even left food and his kennel out to hope that might stop by. After 10 days we recieved a call from the daughter of a very old departed family friend. She had found Moe and called the number on the collar! After that we tried to love him as much as possible. My mother did the best job of that, making sure Moe had someone to pet him all the time. After the kids grew up and moved out and away Moe was the one that woke my parents up in the morning and spent all day long at their side. Moe was a friend and someone that was alwasy there to listen to you and love you unconditionally. In the Fall of 2004 age began to really take its toll on him. By Christmas his body could not keep up. The holiday brought us all together to celebrate, but we really gathered to say goodbye. Everyone took some time to love and hug him one last time and tell him what a wonderful friend he had been. Two days later he was gone. I will never meet such a great friend again. All his family pups and humans alike miss him very much. Good Bye Moe.
