He was almost 12.
I lost someone very near and dear to me Friday night. Not only was he family but a great friend as well. He helped me on road jobs and in the shop. Loved to go hunting with me. Going to work cows at the ranch was his favored thing to do. He was good with my grandsons and loved Shawn and Allison. Always there when I needed someone to talk to. Never let me down and always wanted to do more. He loved to go for rides, didn't matter where we was going as long as he was part of the group. He truly was my best friend. Some say dogs don't have a heaven but I know he'll be in my heaven. Rest in peace old friend for we will be together again one day.
Love you Blu.
