Ruffles and me taken 5 years ago.
Our late poodle
Ruffles. We had to send him over the bridge on April 3,2002 at the age of
15. He got to the point he was blind, deaf, couldn't walk right and
couldn't stand up for long. We felt we had no choice to do what we
had to. Dad knew the time was coming so he built him a coffin, put
some carpet in it and covered him with a blanket as if he was taking a nap.
It was hard looking at him those last days without crying, plus my dad was
the one who had to take him to the vet and it was one of the hardest things
he ever had to do. We couldn't tell family or friends for a few days as it
was hard for him and he was like a member of the family. We were going to
wait until that winter to get a new dog but dad couldn't wait, so in
August of 2002 we went and got Fritz. It was
the best thing we could have done. Fritz is right up
there with Ruffles when it comes to being a great pal. .
