"It is with
inconsolably heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear
and precious Louie (Blossoms Sweet Louie Dunbar) our loving,
gentle, and goofy Louie crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.
Louies story has been told many times over the past 10
years. He came to us when he was just two when it became known Louie
was crated day and night, and terrified of that prison.
Louies breeders intervened after Louies mouth was
repaired yet again from attempts to escape his 'prison', and most of
his teeth, canines and incisors, broken off to the gum line. It was
decided that Louie be re-homed, and we were the lucky, eternally
grateful ones who got to share Louies love from then on.
Louie was a clown. He mastered The Look and could
melt the steeliest heart. Never a day went by when he didnt
make us laugh. Louie was so loving, so knowing, and hilarious.
He grieved right along with us over Destiny and Bens loss
to hystio. Louie has been my shadow for 10 of his 12+ years, and
given us more unconditional love that we can even express
Hed cuddle all day and all night if he could. You could
never hug anyone, without Me Too Lou-Lou squeezing in
between you for his share! He was always happy, always full of
energy, and never forgot a friend.
But Louies energy had gone, and he had become more and
more frail; his spirit was willing but his body could no longer do
his bidding. Our vet of 26 years came to our home yesterday, and
helped Louie across the Rainbow Bridge while we held him and each
other in our arms.
Louie is in a special place on our property where we can sit on
a large rock beside his spot in the forest. We placed our Desty
(Valleverdes Destiny, Aug. 9, 1992-April 30, 1999) and Ben (
Valleverdes Friendly Ben, July 29, 1993 - May 9, 2002) with
Louie cradling their urns. The three of them are together again, and
Louie will have been greeted by Desty and Ben as he crossed the
Bridge last night.
Goodnight Sweet Louie, your Desty and Ben are with you.
Always Loving, Always Loved, Forever in our hearts,
Adrienne & Fred Hammond
