Good-bye Frank!!

Frank died yesterday, June the 13th. Bob has been sick and Frank seemed to catch what Bob had. Within about 24 hours he was gone. I feel so horrible. I thought he would be okay after a day or so and instead he died during the night. Thursday night we tried to find a vet open but couldn't, so we figured if he wasn't better by morning we would take him then. I think the hardest thing I have ever had to do was to wake Dane up and tell him his dog had died, so he could see him one last time. Dane and Frank were the best of buddies. Dane is doing okay, I guess, he isn't saying very much. Darren, too has just gotten quiet. I just can't believe he's gone. No more Frank running to get under our feet so we will rub his tummy. I sure did love that dog. On top of my own sadness, I feel so bad for Dane I can hardly stand it. Bob is doing some better. He's on three different medications, I quess it's some sort of GI infection/virus. Frank was just too old to handle it.

We miss Frank too!!! He will be missed so much! I cried off and on about all day yesterday! I loved that dog and for some reason I think he loved me too!!! He's made it through alot of things in his lifetime, even Aunt Boof running over him once! Hope you and Dane are doing better!
Love, Boof

How sad to loss a family friend. My mother lost her dog a few months ago and the memories of him are treasured. Dogs are faithful friends and love us unconditionally.
