 There have been too many losses this week and I just found out that we have another one.
 Keller came into rescue in July of 2010.  He was in a NC shelter and he was fostered by a sweet young woman in NC.
 His eyes were damaged, and nothing could be done.
 His eyes were removed, but it not change his spirit.
 He loved his mom, and enjoyed the sunshine on a car ride.
 He went to work with her every day.
 His mom was a dog groomer, so sometimes, he had fun things done to his hair (all pet safe of course).
 He loved his doggy family and got along with them well.
 Snow was no problem-- except for his mom, because he blended right in.
 He loved a good snoozing place.
 And if his friends were with him, it was even better.
 He sometimes had a ride when they went someplace.  He loved his pouch, and on walks with his siblings, he would sniff the air, and wind up falling asleep.
 A snuggle with his friend was great....
 But, snuggling with his mom was at the top of the list.  He had the best life with her-- the best food, hair and nails done, trips to the lake or beach. And love.
 Keller had a wonderful life.   But, last month, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.  This is bone cancer, and it was fast growing.  There was no way to do surgery because of its location.    He was kept as comfortable as possible, but once the pain began, his mom knew she would not let him suffer.
 His doggy friends will miss him so much.
Keller had a life of love for the past 7 1/2 years-- he will be dearly missed.  Run free, sweet boy.

You are correct, there have been too many who crossed the bridge recently. And each one makes me sad but the good part here is that each and every one of them was rescued, saved and had love, food and comfort of a good home in the latter part of their lives.
