Good Bye My Friend




For those people that know me, you can usually tell where I am working on the farm by looking for the dogs. I travel with my pack, my best friends and closest advisors. I always have a Border Collie with me, a dachshund under my arm or a Great Dane riding shot gun in the truck. Cleopatra our Great Dane was born on our anniversary April 1st, she is 5 years old. Unfortunately, she wont be seeing her 6th birthday this year.
Yesterday I took Cleo to the vet and she was diagnosed with advanced bone cancer. I get really attached to my dogs. Yesterday was also my wife Darcy's birthday, what a crappy way to spend it crying with Cleo. I have a day or two left with Cleo...we will spend it lying on the bed watching tv....I dont want to turn our blog into a depressing thing, I just wanted to let our friends know that if they want to stop by and say good bye to "pup pup" you better do it soon.
We have had a lot of great dogs over the years, "Pup" is one of the best....we will miss you a lot. Rest in Peace.

So very sorry for your loss. They do form such an important part of our lives and we theirs, what endures is the love we share for all time. Best wishes for a peaceful transition and hopes for a better tomorrow.

My heart cries for you. Our Dane is near 7 and slowing down, and every day is tinged with sadness knowing
we are on the downside of his earthly existence. Cleo will be there to meet you on the other side, as she
will be with you every day, only in another dimension.
I am sure of that. Take heart. She is always with you.
