PostSubject: Colter, Chip and Hoss are Playing together today!   Sun Nov 15, 2009 3:25 pm

As you have read in my post "Its almost time" Colter (my neighbors Black Lab) has been suffering from declining health over the past month or so. It is believed that he had a major stroke on Friday morning and it effected his quality of life in a big way. Yesteday he was lethargic and inactive. He didnt want to eat or drink and just layed quietly in his kennel.

Early this morning he passed away in his sleep. He was 15 1/2 years old. He has now been reunited with two of his best friends, Chip and Hoss, and they are how playing together at Rainbow Bridge.

His remains will be layed to rest under a big tree in his back yard later today.

Rest in Peace Colter - We'll Miss You ol' Guy!!!

Colter



Hoss

Chip

I'm sorry to hear that. Its good to hear that he went peacefully in his sleep, but still must be really hard for the owner. My condolences...

While he was expecting it for the past month or so, it was still tough to loose him.

He was actually out pheasant hunting with Zeb and Sarge when it happened. His 13 yo son was the one that found him.

Yep, he seams to be handling it pretty well. He's one of those "tough" street wise 13 yo's ... and his dad has been really open as to what was going on. We talked about it, and his dad is going to keep talking with him to make sure he is still OK.

Oh ok, so he knew what was going on. Thats good, I think it would be horrible for a little kid not to know what was wrong with his dog...

He's been preparing him for this for about a year. Explaining to him that dogs only live 12-15 years. So on Colters 15th B-day the kid actually said, "Colter isnt going to be around much longer is he?"
