So sorry to hear about your loss Doug. We lost of beloved golden last Thanksgiving from kidney failure. It was surprisingly difficult. We still miss her dearly.

Default Good Byes

Doug and Suzi,

Sorry to hear about MoonDog. Having to make that final decision is horrible.

I just had to put my 12.5 year old Aussie down last week. He was my airport dog as well.

I'm sure you're as heartbroken as I am.

All the best,

There's nothing we can say that makes losing a friend any easier. They just don't live long enough!

Doug and Susan,
Kelli and I know how tough it is to lose your friend. We miss Snoopy, our original Lab hangar pup. The VanCave won't be the same.

Moondog was awesome!
