Arrival Story: He was hidding among a bunch of lab puppies at the local Humaine Society. I was not looking for a pet but was there for business purposes and just went to look and there he was, all small and cute. I knew he would be a perfect companion for Drizzt. He was. It was love at first sight for them and they became instant brothers.
Bio: I learned he was deaf at his first check up. The vet offered to put him to sleep if we did not want him and I was horrified at the thought. He was a baby and it wasn't his fault he was deaf. I declined and said no, I was already in love with him. The vet said he was glad bc he would have hated to put him down. So I had 5 perfect years with him till he experienced kidney failure. It was hard bc he died at the vet's over a holiday weekend. We didn't know he had passed on. I promised never to let that happen again and it won't.

Keebler's Poem: IF IT SHOULD BE THAT I GROW WEAK
AND PAIN SHOULD KEEP ME FROM MY SLEEP
THEN YOU MUST DO WHAT MUST BE DONE
FOR THIS LAST BATTLE CANNOT BE WON.
YOU WILL BE SAD, I UNDERSTAND
DON'T LET YOUR GRIEF THEN STAY YOUR HAND
FOR THIS DAY MORE THAN ALL THE REST
YOUR LOVE FOR ME MUST STAND THE TEST.
WE'VE HAD SO MANY HAPPY YEARS
WHAT IS TO COME CAN HOLD NO FEARS.
YOU'D NOT WANT ME TO SUFFER SO
THE TIME HAS COME, PLEASE LET ME GO.
I KNOW IN TIME THAT YOU WILL SEE
THE KINDNESS THAT YOU DID FOR ME.
ALTHOUGH MY TAIL ITS LAST HAS WAVED,
FROM PAIN AND SUFFERING I'VE BEEN SAVED.
PLEASE DO NO GRIEVE IT MUST BE YOU
WHO HAD THIS PAINFUL THING TO DO
WE'VE BEEN SO CLOSE, WE TWO, THESE YEARS.
DON'T LET YOUR HEART HOLD BACK IT'S TEARS.
