Big shoes to fill


“On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living, that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend's life also, in our own, to the world.”

Henry David Thoreau

Gussie, you are always so wise. Wally will be missed everyday...he brought such joy and laughter to us all!!! I bet he and Snickers are having a pawty right now!!!

Lots of Sad Licks, Ruby

Jake of Florida said...

Yes, indeed, you are one wise wire. No wonder Wally appreciated you so!! We agree with Ruby -- he and Snickers will be exchanging stories and tall tails about all their DWB friends and the humans/apes they trained.

Gus, You amaze me with your wisdom. Wally will be missed by all, even those that didn't know him. He will indeed be a legend. Yep, he and Snickers are having a pawty and probably a good pawker game going.

I am very sad for his loss, but Doggie Heaven has gained an angel.
