January 1996 – July 2011
Handsome, humble and housetrained. A good guard dog, good eater, good listener and good kisser. A trustworthy walking companion: no leash required. A diligent sentry, until he handed over yard patrol to another able soldier. For nearly fifteen years, he diligently upheld the ideals of noble dogism. Salute.
In return I loved, pampered and indulged him. He never knew a flea, tick or illness, except old age. Never suffered the bite of a wintry night, the end of a chain or fell out of favor with his pack.
