Sir London Grey Frang

July 8, 1999 - October 5, 2009

Things that did not kill him:

consuming a box of tampons
consuming 4 lbs of chocolate in one sitting
consuming a large amount of door most likely covered in lead based paint
consuming a Costco sized bottle of Advil Liquid-Gels (that one sure came close)

Things that did kill him:


Fuck cancer.

You are, obviously, welcome to your personal beliefs. I do not believe he is in heaven, nor anything about a rainbow bridge or stuff of that ilk. From my perspective our companion and loyal pack member is just no longer with us, except in memory. Please respect my beliefs by refraining from telling me about where you think he is in some attempt to comfort me. This isn't about my beliefs being more valid than yours, this is just about what I need right now.

He was my beautiful booger dog with super soft ears, and he made every effort to be a very good boy, and that was often not easy because he was such a smart, stubborn, rambunctious, inquisitive boogeriffic dog.

This sucks. It is okay too. It is the most natural thing we do, other than being born. But, it sucks, and I am sad. I miss him.

There will be less fur all over the house now, but also, less heart.

My favorite photo of him and I together

That's a touching picture and a fine tribute. If all could leave was memories then he did a bloody good job of it.

It is rare for me to smile when reading of a death on MoBlog but as I read this I could see my puppy and could share the pleasures of your beloved mutt for the love smiles and frustrations you shared with him and now us.

I've just looked on Flickr too. What a beautiful dog indeed - a real cuddler.

And I love what you say about trying to be good. Our cats don't even try to be good and we love them.

Tori says:

Thank you everyone.

Having a hard time adjusting still, even though we've known it was coming for months.

We are still looking for him across the room, or when we get home.

He did have a good life with us though, and I'm glad we had those years together.
