RIP Sweet Noah

Not happy at having to sit still for a picture!

Noah loved his naps!
Rest in Peace my sweet Noah.............. When he was a year old, he was abandoned along with his brother. They were left on a blanket in a ditch during an awful February ice storm. They waited so patiently on the little blanket for their owner to come back. Luckily a good Samaritan found the two icicle covered dogs and brought them to a shelter. We fell in love with the big orange goof the moment we saw him at the shelter. He was the sweetest boy ever. Although a little short on smarts, he more than made up for it with his huge heart. Allergic to everything under the sun, including grass, mold, dust mites, all protein known to man and veggies, he was still always happy. Today we had to let our poor boy go, the years of steroids had taken their toll on his body. A huge thank you to Dr. Shannon Steuart for being the very best vet and friend anyone, or any furry friend could ask for. Because of her kindness, I was able to say goodbye to my boy today, a Sunday. Noah loved her and it made it much easier for us all that he didn't have to spend his final moments treated by a stranger.

So sorry Corina! Dogs really are man and woman's best friend. They are such good listeners and keep all confidences secret. No doubt he will be missed. My heart grieves with yours. Lily my springer spaniel sends you a big sloppy kiss er lick!

Huge hugs to you and yours. ((((hugs)))) This puppy was so blessed to have been found by that stranger an then taken home by you. He looks like a beautiful dog - loved the picture of the three of them on the couch.
You are in my thoughts tonight, you have done him a great favor and I know it is hard to let them go, but you did him right.

There's nothing I can write to ameliorate your grief. That you rescued two abandoned puppies and gave them the best life they could imagine and in return were loving, loyal and lots of laughs will perhaps comfort you at this time.

What a life filled with blessings for your Noah - he knew what it was to be loved and cared for. It never is an easy journey when we must say good bye to our companions but knowing they were truly loved brings comfort.
