RIP Keefer 8/25/05-4/24/19

We said goodbye to Keefer a couple of week ago after a good, long life of 13 years, 8 months. Such a sweet, loving, affectionate dog. He lost his half sister Dena when she was 4 years old, and took it hard. Those two were joined at the hip. A few months later we got Halo, and at first he wasn't much interested in her, but they did become friends and were constant companions for over 9 years. Almost a year ago, he lost her too. By the time we brought Cava home Keef was already too old to play with another dog and I'm not sure how much he cared whether or not she was here. But she loved him and was very devoted to him, always looking out for her boy. We'll miss you so much big boy.

I am so sorry. No matter how long they live, it is always way too short. Gorgeous dogs and what a fun life. Those pictures made me tear up and remind me of the dogs I lost. Heal well.

A handsome dog that had a good life. Who could ask for more?

It's always hard for me when I loose one but it's always been an honor to have them in my life.

He was so beautiful. Babsy was put down on 4/29, and she would have been 14 on August 10th. So about the same age as your boy. Aren't the old ones so very special? I am so sorry for your loss.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand youíre hanging on to your dogís body because youíve lost his mind!
