Halo von Rokanhaus 11/9/08-6/17/18

Halo had been fighting DM for nearly a year and a half. Several weeks ago she developed pancreatitis, and despite our hope that she would get past it she continued to get worse. Sunday evening we made the difficult and painful decision to let her go peacefully. We had vowed to fight with her as long as she was able to fight, but finally she was no longer able to do so and we knew that it was time.

Halo was supremely confident and totally fearless from the time we got her at 10 weeks old, all the way from Connecticut. She was a stealer of kitchen knives, a shredder of potholders, and an eater of toilet paper, she was my hiking companion and my flyball racer. Halo was brilliant, competitive, clever, devious, sometimes annoying, exasperating, sweet, affectionate, intense, opinionated, and funny. She made us laugh nearly every day. She was delightful. She was loved and she loved us. We will always miss her.

Oh Debbie, I'm so sorry! She sure was a character and a fun dog. The knife picture will always be one of my favorites. Rest in peace Sweet Halo.

I'm sorry Debbie. I was wondering, but didn't want to ask. Its hard to believe how short a time 10 years can be.
