RAINBOW BRIDGE: SPIKE

We lost one of our playdate group hounds yesterday. Spike, a young boy, was hit by a car. (which didn't slow, swerve or stop) Our hearts go out to his Mom and Dad. Spike was the instigator for most of the runs at playdate. Getting all the other dogs going, trying to catch up with him. As I was going through photos for this post, I realized there were no images of him just hanging out staring at the camera. Then I realized it was because he never once slowed down. My mental images of him is being let loose from the leash and tearing off across the field in a balls out run with the rest of the dogs trailing after. Run free, Spike, in a place with no fences and endless fields of grass.

I'm so sorry for those who loved him! They're never with us long enough, but some losses are much harder to accept than others. Our hearts go out to his family!
