Patches ( April 12 2001 - April 18 2010)

It has been a very difficult weekend.

Early this morning our dog Patches lost his battle with Addison's disease.

He was a sweet and loving dog filled with life and with love and he completed our family.

It has been so quiet around here and we already miss him so much. Who would have thought that a family could fall so in love with a little dog. My youngest daughter has taken one of his dog tags and placed it on a necklace that she is wearing around her neck. I know that he is not coming home but it still seems so unreal to me. I wish so much that life did not include death because it is always so painful.

Patches we will all miss you very much. Thank you for all of the love that you have given our family. You will live on in our hearts forever.


  1. Sunshine I am so sorry to read about Patches. What happened? I know it is tough but know that if you need something you can call.

  2. Sunshine, I'm so sorry. I know what you are all going through having been there myself. It's so hard.

  3. Sunshine, I'm so very sorry. Patches was alwasy filled with love and happiness and I will miss him very much. We are here if you need anything and love you all.

    Patches, benjo outside is something I've heard for many years

    But now our hearts are overwhelmed with tears

    Our little Patches, so filled with love

    He's gone to a better place with so many up above

    We'll never foget his friendly bark

    And how much he loved to run in the park

    If you look at the windown and see where the light catches

    That's our little happy boy, we'll never forget Patches

    Here for your always Sunshine,
