    Default The company we keep....

    My good friend Sumo will be 16 years old in a couple of weeks... he was my loyal friend for several years B.C. ( Before Children!) when it was just me and Sumo. He waited at the door to greet me the day I brought Adam home from the hospital...and again the next day when I brought Alexis home....( I'm sure he was just hoping I wouldn't leave again on the third day,thinking just stay in and have pizza delivered...!) He would follow me from room to room, staying at my side..... he was my faithful friend when I felt alone and overwhelmed by being a new parent, a single parent.

    My twins are 11 now... and Sumo is still my loyal friend. He's starting to feel his age. He has arthritis ( probably from following me around the house in the early years of feeding babies and diaper changes!) and he doesn't see as well as he used to. It'll break my heart to lose him.
    My daughter made me an avatar with Sumos' photo... she had to crop the photo in order to make it fit. I thought I'd start a thread in honor of my great friend Sumo.... Here's to good friends,no matter what species!

    this is Galahad - he lived with us from the time he was a little pup - my daughter, Aileen, brought him home the night before Easter. I remember us all at church the next day - at a sunrise service - all wrapped up in a baby blanket. She was 16 then.

    Now she is 27 and has two year old Lucas to care for - and was right there helping guard him as you can see in the posted pic.
    Sad to say at 16 he was still frisky enough to jump the fence and run to the neighbor's down the road to pursue romance - (this happened just 6 weeks ago so the loss is still fresh)he heard the car returning and was running back when a speeding truck on the highway we live on hit him. He was gone instantly right in front of my daughter. It was traumatic. When she called me I thought she had news her husband had been lost in Iraq at first she was so shaken - but he is still ok and due home in Nov. Our best friend and family guard has gone on and we miss him.
    right now the loss is too fresh for us to have gone to seek another in need of a good home but someday I imagine we will find a Galahadtoo. Luckily he has had pups once and we still get to see one of his boys and are glad he had the chance to leave his own legacy.
    this picture is a few months old - Lucas has recently turned two

    What an adorable photo! I had tears in my eyes reading your post.
    Isn't it amazing the love our furry friends bring into our lives? I really love your photo of Gallahad &Lucas!

    I'm sorry, I spelled Galahad wrong.

    Netsirk... what are your dogs names? What kind of dogs are they? The one on the L in the photo reminds me of the dogs in 8 Below.....
