I lost Old Man Dean on April 17th 2017 to kidney failure. Having to help a loved dog over the Rainbow Bridge is a very difficult thing but the right Thing. Old Man Dean has a story on this site of being rescued. I rescue him at age 12, he had been abandoned at a lake close by in the middle of summer (108+). It was such an honor to have him with me even if only for a year and a half. Good night sweet prince. Thank you for taking care of ME.
