My dog friend Ranger, joined the other pure animal souls and is running around like crazy with all our other passed pet companions tonight. Ranger was dealing with cancer for nearly 3 years now. His family, Don, Sue and Kaya, will miss him dearly. I was lucky to have gotten to spend a week with Ranger recently. I knew I wouldn’t see him again, so I sat down and talked to him about the “rules”. I told him that my dog George, would take care of him, show him the ropes. That he could chase my cat friends, and Bugsy, a white rabbit, but no nipping or scaring them too bad.
Ranger was a great dog, was always up for any distance you wanted to go in the mountains. Just last weekend, he went for a 3 hour hike with Don, Sue & Kaya, at one of his favorite places in the world, Idyllwild, CA. What a way to spend your last days. I know our animals feel how much we rely on them for companionship and love. It is a near perfect symbiotic relationship. I was very fortunate to know Ranger. I hope to meet up with him again.
