It's with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of Tad. He was a small dog with a HUGE heart. A heart that was so big he was able to share little pieces of it with all of those around him be they family, friends or strangers on the street. It was also a sick heart and after 16 years of giving it had nothing left to give.
I adopted Tad when he was 13 and it was one of the best decisions of my life. Senior dogs have so much to offer us. Tad reminded me that it's OK to take things slowly sometimes, that there is no age limit to learning new things and about the importance of taking naps.
I never believed in love at first sight until that October day 3 years ago when I first met Tad. Three years was not enough time but had I adopted him when he was 3 months old it still wouldn't have been enough time. It never is, is it?
I hope your heart is now at rest. I miss you.
