Farewell Old Friend
Today we made the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to Boris.

Boris, taken 13 April, 2009
Boris had been with us for a very long time... he would have been turning 15 next month. He was a member of our family before the kids came along; and patiently with good grace, accepted his lower position in the pecking order with each arrival.
He has been a loyal friend.
We will miss him terribly.

I'm so, so, so sorry. I know exactly how this feels. We had to make this sad decision a year ago with our dog, Calvin--who looks like he could be Boris' brother. He was exactly what you described of Boris. My heart goes out to you and your family. ((hugs))

OH Jenny--

I am so very sorry. I know losing a pet you've had for that long is so similar to losing a child. Love going out to you and your children this day.

Oh no! I'll be thinking of you all.

Farewell, good dog.

Yellow labs are just the best. Particularly when they are mature.

It's a sad, sad day. The neighbourhood is a much quieter but much more boring and empty place without him. I'll miss feeding him at your parties as well. So long Boris. xx
