R.I.P. Skipper

Elegant..
Beautiful...
provocative...
These are only a few of the words I have used to describe my chocolate lab Skipper.
We bought Skipper when he was only 3 months old. He was the most magnificent puppy Ive ever had(considering he's not a gsd). There were no puppies as playful as Skipper. We would play outside together from sunrise to sunset(with naps in that time too of course).
As Skipper grew older he began to grow as every dog does, but Skipper was different. He grew to be morbidly obese by the time he was 2 and a half years old. By the time he was 6 years old he weighed 160 lbs.
Despite being outrageously overweight Skipper was a very active dog. He regularly played outside and loved to chase his jolly ball.
When Skipper was nine years old his health really started to deterioate. He started growing tumors all over his body and eventually broke his back and died.

The good lord jesus came and took my dog to heaven on December 23rd 2012.
He was 9 years old 8 months and 26 days old he passed away.

One day you'll be playing with Skipper again----he's waiting just around the corner, you just can't see him from where you are now.

I have never stop hurting about all my dogs, Beno left me 3 1/2 years ago and I doubt their is more than 10 days that I haven't thought about him. But for the last 3 1/4 years, I have had another great dog helping to ease my pain.

R.I.P My friends,, I miss you all...
