Quick Bio:

May 12th 2006

Striker loved to fetch. Indoors he played grab and run constantly.

He hated going into "time out" in his crate. Didn't like being confined at all.

Favorite Toy:
Strike loved his 2 nubby "sports" balls for chasing in the backyard.

Favorite Food:
He was on Iams "Smart Puppy" and no table scraps...until we started puppy kindergarten. THEN he discovered chicken, hot dogs and steak!

Favorite Walk:
We had just started taking him to Laurel Lake. He LOVED the beach...ocean or L.I. Sound.

Striker is no longer with us. He died when he licked our home paper shredder. We have launched an awareness campaign. Many of you have probably heard our story already. If not, you can look on Dogster's pet blogs (health)for info. . You may request a copy of our flier at THANKS to all of you who care enough to spread the word.

Tomorrow marks a year since Striker died. It has been an incredible roller coaster of emotions for me. The one feeling that overrides the sorrow however, is GRATITUDE.
Through his tragic death, I have become an advocate for pet safety.
Because of my advocacy I have been contacted by the most wonderful, caring people who have expressed true sorrow and empathy.
Because those people carry Striker's story in their hearts his legacy continues.

I truly wish, with all my being that I didn't have to write this but reality is what it is.
And so I say thank you to you ALL for your support and ask that you CONTINUE TO TELL HIS STORY so that no one else needs to write this kind of letter.




A new beginning

I just wanted to let everyone who has become a part of our lives to know that Striker's new "brother" RUMBLINE'S BODIE ISLAND LIGHT...BODIE came home last evening. He is a beautiful boy (Strike picked a good one for us from the "Bridge") full of typical puppy energy and joy. I never imagined a year ago as I watched him frolic in the same way, that we would be in this position. I wish with all my heart that we weren't. Bodie will never replace Striker but will help our broken hearts to heal.

Please remember to keep Striker's story alive so that we continue to spread the word about paper shredder dangers.

Pictures will be coming! Time to drink my coffee while Bodie naps!

Thanks to all of you for kind words and support.
