Its been almost two weeks now since we lost our wonderful dog Doc. On March 14th we woke to find Doc and his buddy Jazz (my sister's dog) had both died during the night in their dog house. We are not sure of the circumstances that caused their death, only that they are gone and gone together.
We all mourn in different ways. Sean mourns by busying himself with work. He and my brother-in-law had the task of taking care of the dogs. It was really hard on my brother-in-law so Sean offered to take the dogs. There are still times when I look outside expecting to see the dogs. Doc would come and sit by the windowsill when i was in the kitchen cleaning or making dinner. Sometimes when I am in there a shadow from the tree makes me look up expecting to see both dogs.....but it is just the tree.
For me, I am most sad because of all the things I wanted for Doc. I haven't spent much time with him this winter since having Sammy. I was looking forward to the warm weather so we could go on walks, go to the dog park, or just hang out in the yard. I was excited for Samantha to have the interaction with the dogs and have Doc learn to be a calmer dog.
I wanted to post a bunch of pictures of Doc to remember him by so here is a ton of pictures of our dog.
Our friend Becca had an Australian Shepard named Max. They had a lot of fun playing together. They would wrestle or play tug o war with the rope. We liked when they came over to play or when we would meet at the dog park. Our friends Stacey and Michael also had a dog named Angel. She always acted as the referee.
Stacey and Michael watched Doc for us while we went on our cruise. Here is a pic of Doc and Angel taking a nap after playing together.
While Stacey and Michael were watching Doc they went up to Ft. Worth. It had snowed and Doc went wild! He also loved playing with the Golden Retriever.
