Quick Bio:

scarey noises like fireworks and those pesky smoke detectors

anywhere with water and mom

Best Tricks:
huey could fetch for hours and was a great swimmer

Arrival Story:
picked huey out of a litter of labs on a buffalo ranch in south dakota. he was the mellowest one of the group...mellow is relative. he rode home on my lap and was my constant companion until his kidneys failed in may '06.

there's a 100 pound hole in my heart that may never be filled, i carry him with me always. huey was my marley. he had tons of energy with a sweet disposition. he was the source of much laughter over his years and continues to be. i couldn't drive over 65mph or he'd go into a panic attack, he'd do the same if the fireworks or smoke detector went off, some friends set off a smoke detector at a party here and they feared he was was another panic attack. despite his neurosis he was a happy guy. even in his final days and hours he just wanted to keep walking with us. it took us over 2 hours to do a walk his last day that weeks before had only taken 20 minutes. those last days he lay in misery at home, but all i had to say was "do you wanna go for a walk?" and he'd make his way to the door in anticipation. i am forever grateful that i had those last days with him to say goodbye. his human/dog friends met up with us the day before to say thier goodbyes and he proudly walked with all his friends one last time, albeit slowly. he showed blossom how to swim before he left as butch had taught him about the joy of water before he left. there have always been dogs in my life and each one brings new joys and a unique character all thier own. i'm still in shock at the loss of huey, he had just always been so healthy, i was sure he'd live several years longer. i still wait for his return as i can't believe it's really true. he died peacefully in my arms and is now at the bridge with butch before him and all the other dogs/cats who have touched my life over these many years. they are all gone, but their paws continue to beat a path across my heart. last fall i walked huey this fall it's blossom and rio.

who would know that the puppy i carried home would pass away one day. it just never seemed possible. you were always so full of life and energy. so much energy i tossed sticks for hours, walked you miles and miles and still you were ready to go. i laughed that one day, you would be tired and then your life would be over. i remember i taught you to chase your tail just so i could use it to tire you out so i could sleep. you did grow tired and then you left for the bridge.

i know you are happy there with your big brother butch. i remember when butch went to the bridge, it scared you to not have him there. you were often scared without him there. noises especially and speed. if i drove over 65 or went over bumps in the road you'd begin to panic. some friends once thought you were having a seizure, it was just a panic attack. there are no more of those now at the bridge i'm sure.

thank you huey for all the years we shared together. for your constant devotion and attention. you were just a wonderful companion and friend. i spent more time with you than any person over the years and i thank you for all the joy you brought to my life. one day i will join you at the bridge. until then i will keep you close to my heart and memories of you will continue to bring a smile to my heart.
