Sleep my old man

Sleep my old man

You were my Raider, my best friend, my listener, the one who stood by me no matter what. You defended me against other dogs. You might have been blind but I loved you unconditionally. You were mine, I was yours. I hope you know how much you were loved. And how much I miss you. I wish we had more time together, I met you when you where 4 weeks old. And I was there for your departure. It was so hard saying goodbye to my boy. I can’t ever replace you and I won’t even try to. I miss you so much. I’m so happy that you were my best friend for those 12 years. I wish I would have been a better friend. I love you Raider. No more seizures baby, no more.

I feel your pain.
by: Marianne DiNenno from PA

I read your tribute. We lost our 14.5 year old salt and pepper mini Schnauzer named Tony a few months ago. He was my best friend. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor and suffered from seizures the last 2 months of his life. Seeing your photo and reading the story touched my heart as your boy reminds me so much of our beloved boy.

Tears. I love these little "rascals". Mine is sitting in front of me smiling but I hope I will never see the day to part with her.

Your old man
by: T St Louis

I'm so sorry your friend had to leave you. I understand every word you said. He was a handsome boy. I'm certain he knew how much he was loved. I can feel it in your words. I'll be thinking of you. Take care.
