    Many of you heard me speak of our beloved poodle Frank.
    I’m sad to report that today, after many years of wonderful companionship….we had to have him put to sleep.

    His health issues, progressive cataract blindness, and deafness all affected him these last 2 years. But two recent bouts of canine geriatric vestibular disorder with the last one about a month ago pretty much ruined the old guy’s quality of life.

    So, over 18 years after that January day that my wife found this cold little dog in an outdoor animal shelter pen…he’s gone.

    To where the food bowl’s always full, the bed’s always warm and there’s always squirrels to keep up the trees.

    Good bye my friend and thank you for the love and joy you brought
    your family. We loved you so very much.

    *cheers* PoM….thanks guys for your thoughts.
    We’ve expecting this awhile but, its just so damn hard….. 🙁

    He was such a good little guy, went to work with us every day since business opened back in 1995 until just a few months ago when we had to start leaving him at home.

    He was friends with so many customers at the store alot of people are bummed out. Many fo their kids grew up to be teenagers knew him.

    My closest friend came for a weekend visit with his new girl friend back in 1999…..she was a cat person who didn’t like dogs…when they left on Sunday she kissed him! I DIDn’T even kiss my dog…lol. Thats the way he was.

    She cried more than we did when we let her know.

    I have so many stories but I won’t bore you all with them.
    Poodles are an amazing breed, he was a minature and weighed about 20 lbs. Always ready to go, always eager to meet people and always………..ALWAYS your friend.

    My apologies if I invaded a funeral thread, sorry if I did so. I didn’t think..but posted in active threads looking for my own attention to be had..

    I meant no disrespect. May the dead rest well and with honour in the Afterlife.

    By my honour in the houses of the Royals of Stewart, begone all these long years, I promise my eyes have seen and my mind will that such peace will be here.

    So it moted be. So let it be. So let it be done.

    Amen.

    Guess ya gonna have to find another wee companion that likes carrying Stoli for ya.

    Might I suggest something a little more substantial though so he won’t have to won’t have to keep going back and forth carrying a sip @ a time.

    Sad for you mate, but atleast the lil guy won’t have to listen to your dumb ass jokes anymore, I’m almost envious.

    Your sympathy,as always, is touching Pnut.

    Thank you for the condolences Mrs PoM.

    When I buried him it was in the rain Monday, did a rather fast messy job. Rained again last evening, just as well , I just couldn’t go out there.

    Went there this evening, moved the rest of the dirt, cleaned things up and dressed it with a hard rake.
    Its a proper site for our guy now.

    Rest in Peace Frank.
