I just wanted to thank everyone for hanging out with me for the last 15 years. I hope you enjoyed my life as much as I did.
I came a long way in my 15 years on this big ball floating through space. I had a really good life with great friends, both 4-legged and 2-legged.
I started my life as a sick little puppy that came from a truly crappy fake rescue. The place was finally shut down by the state a few years ago. They started another fake rescue almost immediately and are hopefully going to prison for animal neglect, identity theft, forgery, federal conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and federal mislabeling of animal drugs.
I went on vacations every year and got to travel through Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, and Montana. I played in the ocean, explored the high desert, ran around the mountains, got to see the Redwoods, swam in high mountain lakes, barked at wolves and cougars, herded cattle and bison, swam in rivers, rock hounded for obsidian, watched whales, played in the ocean, saw the largest Sitka Spruce, played in snow 4 feet deep, slept in a tent, and climbed part of a mountain.
I got to eat all kinds of food like emu, pork, turkey, lamb, elk, venison, steak, chicken, pizza, hot dogs, fish, cheesecake, crème brulee, liver cake, bacon, root beer floats, hamburgers, prime rib, cupcakes, and other tasty stuff.
I played in pools, attacked sprinklers, swam in doggy pools, played ball, went for long walks, played with friends, barked at cats, caught mail thieves, did yard work, raked leaves, took stuff to the dump, helped build things, celebrated special occasions, dressed up and passed out candy at Halloween, and snuggled with my people.
I spent my last couple of days eating turkey, vanilla bean waffles, fish and chips (minus the chips), fried chicken, pizza, my favorite pureed canned dog foods, canned cat food, vanilla bean cheesecake, the bacon from 2 Sonic bacon cheeseburgers, 1/4 of a Sonic root beer float, minnows, Bonito flakes, birthday cake, liver, kidney, and my body weight in treats. I went for a ride along some of my old walking routes. And I got loved on by my people... a LOT!
