BLUE (if you're not into sad stuff you might want to skip this post)

I had the sad duty this morning to take Blue to the vet and have him put to sleep.

I had Blue for a little over 16 years from the time he was 6 weeks old.

He was a good companion, true and loyal,never in all these years did he disappoint me. He was a great playmate to my two boys growing up,protective towards strangers but gentle with the livestock, especially the baby's, from newborn goats to chicks.He accompanied me on many , many miles riding my horse through the woods while he was younger.He had a good,long live ,never missed a meal.He will be greatly missed.

Bye old buddy,may you have lots of rabbits to chase and hot dogs to eat at your new forever home.

BLUE 1993-2009

How beautifully you write about Blue, how wonderful that he lived with you and your family and it was a good life to share. Your heart must ache for this loss - when my 15 year old cat died last year I was grieving for a few months, it was like losing a family member - do take care of yourself, and take time to grieve, and remember, and say goodbye. Hugs.
