Pics of your Pet

Just because her eyes weren't closed doesn't mean she wasn't sleeping when she passed.  When I had to put my fur baby down, my vet let me know that animals don't/can't close their eyes in death and they are just open.  I even tried to close them after my fur baby passed and they just wouldn't stay closed.  I was glad she warned me because it would have startled me if I hadn't known.  I know you loved Sushi very much and I know she went to sleep peacefully.

This is what I was thinking to Jennifer, but wasn't sure of their eyes opened automatically if they died while asleep.  Lacy's were open also, but she was awake when she died.

Thanks. After doing a little research it appears that you two are correct about the eyes. So that puts my mind a little more at ease.

Sadly we lost our best camping boy Brady about a week ago.  He was just a month shy of his 15th birthday.  He got to go to Disney 11 times in his nearly 15 years, and I'll dearly miss our daily walks along the 300 loop canal.  I put up some photos and a tribute to him here if you'd like to see it (you don't need a FB account to view)...

I have so many photos of him at the Fort over the years, but here's one of the more recent ones from one of our canal walks. That look pretty much says it all. Our very first morning at the Fort every trip, I'd barely get through my first cup of coffee before he started "telling" me it was time to take our walk.  And it didn't matter what site we were in, he always knew the way.  :)

Dang it, Mo, I am so sorry!

Brady was a great dog. He and I shared a love for that grassy area next to the 300 loop canal. Remember the good times.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Brady.  Thru our Facebook friendship I feel I have become close to him.

Thank you all.  We were so lucky to have had nearly 15 years with him and he taught us more than we ever could have imagined. Our trips to the Fort won't be the same without the big goober, but we're glad we were able to share so many great times with him.

Mo,

So sorry to hear about Brady.  I wish I knew the right thing to say to help, but I'm glad that you guys and him had a great bond for almost 15 years.

We got a new little guy right before Thanksgiving. His name is Winston and he has not been camping yet, but he's been on the motorhome a couple of times at our storage place.  He was afraid the first time but did better the 2nd.  Here's a pic of him in the snow we had in Jan. He's bigger now!  I think he is just over 4 months old (born Sep 28). He's started losing his fuzzy puppy coat and razor sharp puppy teeth, and he loves to chew on anything. Oh, also you can see in the pics he has a stripe above his nose where the fur grows in the opposite direction.

Good grief... why do puppies have to be so darn cute?!   That's how they get you, with their puppy cuteness :P

I know! I had one breeder tell me "don't pick a puppy because it's cute. They're all cute."

Oh my, what a face - love the stripe!!  Having done the puppy thing... they make them cute for a reason (I've got the gray hairs to prove it LOL).  ;)

Wishing you all the very best with Winston (great name!)
