Spencer's registered name is Ch. Phantom Night Watch, but is called Spencer or Spence. Spencer has three obedience championships, can understand some hand signals and can do scent retrieval. He has lost some of his good manners and needs some practice, but is overall a good boy and much-loved member of our family, which includes a six-year old and six cats.

The Last Eight Weeks


One Year Ago Today

My good boy Spencer...it was one year ago today that you left us and got your angel wings. I miss you so much and think about you everyday. Sirius has picked up where you left off in keeping the cats in line. He takes his job very seriously (no pun intended!). You were the best dog I ever had and the three years that you were mine were all too short. Until we see each other again.

 

The Best Place to Bury a Dog

THE BEST PLACE TO BURY A DOG


There is one best place to bury a dog. If you bury him in this spot, he will come to you when you call --- come to you over the grim, dim frontier of death, and down the well-remembered path, and to your side again.

And though you may call a dozen living dogs to heel, they shall not growl at him, nor resent his coming, for he belongs there.

People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by his footfall, who hear no whimper, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them, and which is well worth the knowing.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.

Ben Hur Lampman
From the Portland Oregonian Sept 11, 1925

I snagged this from another site; this poem really sums up my feelings. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of Spencer. I miss him more each day.

I am sad beyond words...Spencer did not make it and went to sleep Saturday, December 1. I was with him and held him when he went to sleep. I want to thank everyone who has sent messages; you are all helping me more than you know.
