Thoughts of a Black and Tan

Hi to all my wonderful pals at Dogster. I want to thank you for all the wonderful prezzies for my Birthday. I had a great day with Mom and Ramsey. We had special treats, songs, and my favorite "butt" scratches all day long. Mom was so very proud of me I made it to my 13th Birthday. I went to sleep that night with my new bird stuffie and a very full belly. Happy and content. Yesterday morning Mom got up to go to work and our morning was very routine. We had our breakfast, went for our walkie and while Mom was getting ready for work I followed her around the house with my bunny stuffie helping her to get ready. She headed off to work and Ramsey and I settled in to watch TV (Mom always leaves it on for us). I watched for awhile then got busy gathering up all my stuffies and putting them into a big pile by the coffee table in the living room. (Mom knows this because this is where she found them all last night). From there Mom is not 100% sure what happened but it looks like I went to the water bowl for a drink and as I was walking away from the bowl I simply collapsed and went to the Bridge to see my brother Wolf, sister Wyoming, and my dog Mom Cheyenne. When our dog-sitter came in the afternoon to take us for our walk she found me there like that on the floor and called Mom at work right away. Mom raced home hoping that Gill was wrong but sadly she told Mom the truth, I was gone, just like that. I know Mom is real sad right now. I see her cry and I see her hold my stuffed toys and weep. She knows in her heart I am OK here at the Bridge and we will see each other again it's just she did not expect me to leave so soon or like this. I had a great 13 years and 1 day and I will always be with Mom watching over her and keeping her out of trouble. I know her and Ramsey will be OK it's just going to take them a while. I just want to say how much I have enjoyed playing with all my friends here on Dogster and hope you all had fun with me too. Wyoming tells me we can still stay in touch here through our diaries, prezzies and rosettes and I have to poke Mom to be a little more active here for me because I'm sure I will have a lot of stories to tell from the Bridge. Until then my friends remember me with a smile and know I will be watching over all of you.
With Love and Thanks
Radar the newest Angel

The Morris Pack is so sad to hear of you crossing the bridge one day after your 13th barkday. You know the vet told our Mom once that dogs hold on and then finally let go when we leave them because they want to be strong for us, that is what Radar did, waited till you were at work. We know how hard this is for you but know Radar is running free at the bridge! Sending (((HUGS)))
Woof, Molly & Pack

Thanks pals for all the kind words. They are truly a comfort for my Mom. Today is a hard one for her. Exactly one week ago I was with her and we were celebrating my Birthday! Mom has thought about what the Morris pack has said and she thinks you are 100% right. She was always telling me that I had to be here for the big one-three and I just couldn't disappoint her. It was a day that will live in both of our hearts forever.
Love and Hugs to All of You
Radar and Mom
