She has gone to be with her brother...

Today has been the hardest day of my life. We had to put our dog BooBoo down. She passed today leaving behind her new brother Augustus, my wife and myself. When her and her brother Riley were given to us, she chose me, we didn't choose her. She was the runt of the litter and had the runt mentality through her whole life. We will miss her dearly. God speed BooBoo!! And be nice to your brother when you see him.

Sorry to hear that Abe.

I just lost my dog Rat Terrier/Chihuahua yesterday. A fiesty little dog to the very end.
Her last camping trip was the Conclave just last month but her heart had deteriorated significantly in the last few days and it was time.

Godspeed to our dog companions...

Love that picture. It brought a smile to my face. Hope in time it will make you smile. Wonder if she up there with my two, Kezar and Maggie.

Sorry for your loss, Abe. To us, our time together always seems far too short but for them, it was a lifetime.

Sorry to hear it Abe. I have a Black Mouth Cur because of how fondly you spoke of these two dogs.
I feel the same way about mine. Even Raub says she will be an awesome dog when she matures.

Doug Chris Raub everyone,thank you. Everything that everybody has said is so true about these wonderful animals. These two dogs have been great friends and wonderful family members.
BooBoo and Riley have been with me to every state but Alaska, Hawaii , and Maine. Probably more than most Americans.

Thanks Dan, I'm sure Abe is still in the first stage of grief...denial....just like me.

I just can't believe she's gone. MAR 2001 was her 1st camping trip and Conclave 2013 was her last.
