Had to put my little buddy Fletch (Fletcher) down yesterday. Brain cancer, left side. Made it to 16 1/2 years. He was a good boy. Trained to hand signals. Would die a thousand deaths before he'd disappoint you. Could not ask for a better companion.

Here's a great pic of him my good friends Sam Guy and his wife Elvie took when they watched him for me about 1 1/2 years ago when he was 15.
The 2nd pic is him as a puppy.

I will miss him terribly. See you on the Rainbow Bridge, buddy.

Durn sorry you had to put him down, at least you had a long run together. Little dogs kinda have a way of growing on you. Weinerdog man myself, Hildegarde was supposed to be the wife’s pup but me and her are pretty good buds.

Fletch looks like he was all you say he was. So sorry for your loss, it is never easy.

Condolences.... It's tough losing a family member and dogs qualify as that. Hope you were with him until the end. My last dog had to be put down at 12.5 yrs. old. I was cradling her head in my arms as she drifted off to sleep. But at least it was peaceful and painless for her. You'll always miss him but life will still go on.

For Fletch,

THE PATH BEYOND THE BEND

Have you ever walked along a path
And looked ahead of you
To where the road turned suddenly
And seemed lost awhile from view?

Think of your dear one living still
Where the road goes on without end
It is only WE who do not see
The path beyond the bend

Having met Fletch on numerous occasions, I have say he was a great dog. We will miss his sense of humor, his playfulness, and his company.

if a man speaks, and there isn't a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

16+ is a hell of a run!

Sounds like you both were more than fortunate.

Thanls to all for the kind words.

The house feels empty, and bigger.
