Another friend has left us...

I am sad tonight because my girlfriend Sophie's new brother, Graham, has gone over the Rainbow Bridge. The poor guy had some health issues that progressed rather rapidly and Sophie's pawesome and caring Mom made the tough choice to let him go.

We didn't know Graham very long, but he was a special and sweet guy, even though he often referred to me as Tanner's SISTER. He and Tanner got along quite well and the Doofus is really going to miss him.

BUT Sophie and her Mom are going to miss him even more, so go over to her blog and send them some hugs and do a couple of farts in Graham's honor for me. He and I really enjoyed a good toot.

Ah Joey, You always know how to make us smile. You really are such a super special guy. And don't worry, I know you are a guy. Graham was a little ... confused on the gender front. But he may have thought the Doofus was a cat, so it's all the same in the end.

I will miss my flat brother. Thank you for the kind tribute. Farts forever! (but not from me, of course, since I am too pretty to fart)

Oh my dogness. We just learned about Graham here. We are sooo sad. We've been following Graham's last few weeks, and were concerned, but we so hoped for a different outcome. The one thing we are so thankful for is: Graham knew love. Real genuine love. He felt the arms of loving humans touching him. He had a home. He belonged to a family. And he now has a family to wait for over the Bridge.

We'll head to Sophie's right now and let them know how sad and sorry we are.

Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo

So sad... Especially when a dog doesn't even get to grow up/grow old. What a hard decision to make, especially so close to the holidays... Our condolences to Sophie & her humans on the loss of their dear Graham

Sketcher and Angel were tooting up a storm last night in honor of Mr. Graham! Their efforts alone could carry him over the bridge on a cloud of...well...farts.

We have only just recently met Sophie but we were very sorry to hear about Graham. It is always a very difficult decision for our humans. Hope Graham meets up with Dakota - she has been very busy welcoming way too many lately.

Joey that was a very nice tribute for Graham. Better head over to Canada and give Sophie some comfort without any tooting if you can.
