as we had to say "good bye" to our beloved Juneau at 4am this morning. The eldest fur-baby in our family, he was a great dog. He'd great you with rabbles, stare up at you with his blue eyes and you knew he wanted love. His fear of hard-wood floors would make him rabble louder if you didn't pet him right as you walked through the door. While he was a "big" dog, he was all fluff. He was a softie to the core - loved other dogs, children and people so much.
At 11 years and 2 months old, he didn't live as long as we had hoped. He left this world abruptly, but the last faces and voices he heard were of my and my husbands.
We are so heartbroken. Devastated by this loss. But we know we were lucky to have him as long as we did. To be blessed by his presence. His smiling face. He made life better and for that we are grateful. And while he did not get to meet his little sibling in person, the rabbles will always be familiar to our little FryBean b/c its a sound s/he heard daily for 32 weeks.
We love you Juneau. May you rest in peace and know that your daddy, mommy, little brother Kota and little sibling will always remember how you brightened our day with a simple wag of your tail!
We miss you already... rest in peace our beloved friend!
