another sad farewell

Hocus Pocus, posing for the camera last summer.

I said farewell to my little marshmallow dog this morning. Sadly, he started seizuring again from a probable brain tumor and wasn't responding well to the anti-seizure medications.

Poke came into our lives at the end of summer in 1997. He was bred by my friend and we were both gob-smacked by his beauty. Together, we traveled to dog shows and he was great fun to show, earning lots of group ribbons along the way.

However, Poke was much, much more than a show dog. He was part of our family and dearly loved. I miss him so much already.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to read this Susan! He was a very cute pup judging form this lovely picture!
I so hoped he would do well on the meds for a while longer.
Rest in peace Pocus and say Hi to my Sammy boy! :o(
