DW and I have been Full Time RV'ing for over two years now. 9 years ago, we adopted a wonderful Boxer boy. His name was Tyson and he came from a family whos two boys (8 and 10) tormented him horribly. After taking about a year to draw him out of his shell, he became a great companion.

What we didn't know was that Tyson had a number of tumors in his chest and abdominal cavities. We lost Tyson to cancer yesterday. We are very sad and will miss him horribly.

He was our little otter face, and was quite a clown. We are so glad we were able to give him a happy place to live for 9 years of his life.

Happy camping! - Eric and Carol Anderson -

I miss my dear Josephine everyday. I know that she will be there to meet me at the Rainbow Bridge.Josephine got so much joy out of traveling first in our 5th wheel and then in our motorhome. She was a service dog for Terry and loved me beyond any measurement. Thanks for having this site to honor her

Mason left us today at the age of nine. Mast Cell cancer took him from us. Mason loved every day of his life and we loved him every day of his life. He was one FINE dog!

Clawd went today and I miss him so badly already



We got him when SWMBO's brother died, in fact Clawd was why we stopped taking the other cats in the rig, Clawd simply didn't adjust

He as a cat, but a love-me-lump all the way

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

Terry lost her best buddy earlier this week. Skeeter had been her close friend and companion for 14 years. We got Skeeter as a 6 week old puppy so we knew him all of his life. Skeeter traveled everywhere with us all of our rv days. We are currently in Wyoming on a summer trip. We have had Skeeter cremeted and will return with his remains. He will always be with us and will meet Terry when she is ready to cross the rainbow bridge.

Just a short story about a dog named Cookie:
We rescued her as a Shepherd pup and raised her as a family member.She earned the nickname of Huntress as we de-varmintized the property.Gentle as well as rough. Many stories in seven years until she fell victim of painful and debilitating Dysplasia.She was on pain meds until the walking stopped. When we got to the vet's her last valiant act for us was to go in under her own power.
Her grave is under the Honey locusts southeast of the house.We will hunt again.

Dear Cocoui, 28 September 2011

Yesterday Cocoui I made the most difficult decision of my life. Even though you may have not known, I was there when the doctor ended your pain. I had my hand on his when he helped you over the rainbow. The state may say the vet has to do it; but I did my best to make it as much of my reasonability to you as I could. I have a lock of your hair I will keep for as long as I am alive. I hope you don’t mind that I cut a few strands of hair from your ears. I will keep it for as long as I live to help me remember you.

You passed from this world and the pain it was on you yesterday, September 27 at around 4:45 in the afternoon. It was a warm late September day, with the sun shining with big white clouds in the sky, not much different from the first day I saw you as a puppy back in June so many years ago.

I don't know how I can say thank you in a way you can understand. You were my ever present companion. You were born in Pittsburgh in late April over 14 years ago. You moved with me to Japan when you were only 10 weeks old. I always wondered if you barked in Japanese. Remember how the Japanese girls would flock around you when we went on walks in town. I’ll won’t forget how you would jump up on the pool table at my office and stick your head in the pockets trying to get at the pool balls.

I'm sorry about all the vet checks and when I had to put you in a kennel for a month when we moved to Australia in 2000. But you had so much fun for the two years we were down under. I won't forget when you first saw Kangaroos or when I snuck you into a hotel room when we went on a road trip. Everyone who every met you always said what a wonderful dog you were.

I'm sorry for the long plane ride from Australia to Virginia you had to make in a crate. I tried to get you in the plane cabin with me but they wouldn't let me. You kind of out grew the pet carryon bags available and couldn’t fit under the seat in front of me.

We had so much fun in Virginia and I had some hard times that you were there to help me thru. You weren’t very happy the day I brought Hanna home. Hanna is a good dog so please forgive me if you were less than happy at the idea of a second dog in the house. When we found Stella you took to her just like you did to me. You stopped following me around the house and were always a few steps behind her then. I didn't mind. You girls need to stick together.

I was heartbroken when your ears became so infected that you had to have surgery. I wish I could have done more then. When you went blind I was devastated but you seemed to take it all in stride. I can only image how difficult it was for you when your world become only what you could smell. Your nose was amazing. From the other side of the house you always knew, within minutes, when Stella or I opened a can of dog food.

These last couple of months you were so tired. It was so hard for you to get out of your bed and just watching you walk and how stiff you were hurt me so. I'm so sorry I couldn't help you more. I wish you could have come with Stella and me on our RV trips. You would have had so much fun. I know how much you enjoyed rides and going to new in different places.

I did something a little silly for you Coco-Bear. I hope you don’t mind but I had a star named after you and I know you'll like this; it's in the constellation of Canis Major, also known as the Big Dog constellation. I can’t see the star this time of year. I will have to wait to later in the winter when the star appears. I’ll find it and will always remember you every time I look at the winter stars in the sky.

Wait for me in heaven Cocoui. It may be a bit but Stella and I will be with you again and we can play fetch with golf balls all day long and never get tired. Introduce yourself to Spotty, Happy, Alfy, Daisy, Chichi and Chachi. I’m sure they can tell you stories about me from many years ago.

You’ll always be my special girl and you’ll be in my heart and thoughts forever.

Dale
