Eleven years ago, March 16, 2003 we brought home our wonderful boy and today we had to let him go.
It was because of Pet Talk we had our Boy (look up the thread from 2003, A Dog Rescue in Progress if you don't know his story).
Spot was an amazing dog, rescued at 2 1/2, he fit in to our home, with his two doggy sisters right away. He spent many years as a therapy dog, a favorite of the kids at the local libraries. He adapted well to a new human sister who loved to chase him and be chased. He made friends (maybe too good of friends?) with several of Pet Talk's fluffy tailed girls, Huney, Keegan, Dazzi, and now he is reunited with them again. I imagine there is a big PT picnic going on at the bridge today to welcome Spot, Phred sitting in the middle, handing out treats.
Tomorrow would have been my brother's 36th birthday. Spot was one of his favorite dogs. Happy Birthday Rob. Take care of our boy til we see him again.
Rest in Peace Spotty Boy (aka Bubby). We love you and miss you.
