In Memoriam

Zed, 1992 - 2008

Zed was the dog of the maid's best friend in New York. She knew him since he was a puppy and visited him several times every year.
He died this Sunday.

Zed was the most wonderful dog you can imagine.
Loving, gentle, caring and kind.




The last two years of his live he was paralyzed but he never complained and enjoyed whatever pleasures life would
give him.




He is survived by his human and his dog buddy Festus, who is a lot younger than Zed and ever since he was a puppy has never been without him.

They do not blog but if you could send them some purrs and/or barks or leave a comment here I am sure they would appreciate this.

It was a very sad weekend, last weekend....

Zed looks like he was an awesome dog, and sounds like he had a great life with a very loving fambly. They must be feeling very sad and have a woofie sized whole in their heart.

Sending purrs to them.

Such a sad post. He lived a long life and now is free of the health problems that plagued him the last 2 years. The psychic Sylvia Brown says our pets will be waiting at the gates for us when we pass over to Heaven. I like to believe that's true. Poor Festus will mourn his passing- he's probably feeling very lonely right now. We'd like to pass our sympathy on to the family.

We send purrs, kisses and sympathies to the maid and her friend and buddy Festus. Zed was a beautiful and brave dog!! We lost three dogs the last five years, so we know how empty it is without them.

That is so sad. We hope the family is doing okay. This is a very hard time for them. Losing a special friend is always hard. Zed must have been some dog.

What a sweet brave doggie he was...I am so sad for those left behind.
Oh I read that Poppy Q does not have any of the cool glasses that other cats have and I was wondering if maybe when you have time you might want to give him a pair. I think that would go over real big:)
