Goodbye Dear Cousin Chief

chief and poe

Today, our cousin Chief went to the big dog park in the sky. Over the rainbow bridge and on to a better life with no pain and all the treats he could ever want.

A few months ago we told everyone that Chief was having heart problems and you all sent kind thoughts and dog licks and we know that helped keep him going, so thank you all!!!

When our aunt was fostering Tanner before he came to Arizona, Chief was Tanner's good friend. We were lucky to see Chief at Christmas when he made the long drive out here again for his last big car ride. Tanner sure enjoyed hanging out with him again.

Well, we are sad here but glad that our cousin is not suffering and that he had a long life and now he is having a blast with all of our dog friends that are up there with him!

Thanks for all of your kind thoughts for Chief and his friends and family! Chief was a very special, sensitive guy...he even liked the Doof. After his diagnosis at the end of January...he got lots and lots of extra attention. Our other dogs seemed to understand. He seemed to savor his last few months...exploring every inch of the yard (slowly), socializing with the neighbor dogs, and getting all of the extra pets.

Thanks for all of your support! Aunt Patty and Uncle Dick

I'm sure Chief is at peace now and watching over his loved ones. He looked like a gentle soul.
