Thunder and Lightning

April 1994 – August 2011

A massive storm rolled through as August 28th turned into the 29th. Cracking and booming directly over our heads, it set its sights on Dogie, our tough old man. Throwing him into the seizures that affected him periodically over the last year, not just once, but 6 times during the night, we finally let him stop fighting and join the storm.

    He will be very missed. He had a good life and gave those around him a good life. (as long as he was keen on you sorry, Chad, Huffer, Kelly and little bro Marty) Happy to to hear he waited to hear the sky bark as loud as his. He will be missed and always loved in our memories.

    Dogie was the man. I am really sorry. He couldn’t have had better humans to live with. Bristol sends her thoughts too.

    He was good. Were his eyes that clear to the end?

    What a beautiful red heeler he was! I have a bluey, he is 15 1/2 yo. Still doing fine but really getting old right now. It is good to know that we can stop our beloved pets from suffering if we need to but it still hurts so much…
