I feel as though I need to tell the world about my dear friend Cretos, so here goes.........
My friend Cretos came to his forever home not that long ago, he found his forever home with a family that could not have been any better. There were skin kids to play with, more pups to play with and a Mom who is a Saint. When he got to his forever home, he was a little iffy about the situation, he had no training in his past home, no exercise , A prong collar and an electric bark collar were his only accessories. He was very hand shy and it took him a while to come around. He had another Boxer sister Autumn who kinda showed him the ropes and just wanted him to come out of his shell, so they could be best friends. Cretos' Mom worked with him all the time, he was like her shadow he followed her everywhere.
Soon enough, Cretos started coming around and making leaps and bounds with his progress. He loves to play with Autumn and as his Mom says, is crazy about the kids.
His love for those kids is what took his life. On October 9, 2008 my dear friend Cretos showed the most amazing act of courage, loyalty and dedication. Here is what happened as his Mom writes...........
I have lost my dear Cretos today. I am not sure what to say about this but he died protecting his baby. I was leaving to take my kids to school. My baby had walked out side with his sister and I was getting ready to go behind them. I heard growling. The neighbors Sheppard was in my yard and ready to attack my baby. Cretos jumped through my glass patio door, and attacked her. They fought for at least 5 minutes before we could get them apart. She tour out a chunk of his throat, and he had other injuries from her and the glass door breaking. She also had injuries. They were both rushed to the vet, and he went into surgery right away. I am in such shock, and it was so awful to watch. The kids were all standing there, and they were all hysterical. I have no idea what to do about all this, and I am completely heartbroken. I swear I am cursed. I am so proud of him, but I wish I had not lost him. He truly is a hero in my book, and saved my baby boy's life (his boy) and now he is gone forever. I have contacted animal control to quarantine his dog if she pulls through, and am waiting to here what he plans to do about this.
It is with a very heavy heart and tears in my eyes that I wish my dear friend farewell. Cretos, I can only hope that in the same situation I would be as brave and loyal as you my friend. You will always be remembered as a hero in my eyes and the eyes of so many others. Have fun with Bonnie and Clyde and I will see you again one day my friend.
Love you buddy.......
