In memory of "Lynard"

Postby Willowen » 03 Apr 2014, 05:34

I have a few words to say about my friend, Lynard Skynard a.k.a Lenny Roo (called this because of his tendency to hop around like a kangaroo). "Roo" was no ordinary yellow lab. He was one of the most extraordinary hunting dogs I've ever seen, as a friend of mine put it, "He loved to hunt and hunt he did". He and my husband spent many hours at their favorite sport.
Roo was unable to hunt the last two years of his life, but he became my constant companion as we gimped around the house together in the mornings trying banish the morning stiffness from arthritic joints. Even though this dog was 13 he always found joy in life. His motto (if he could talk) was, "Everyday is the best day ever!" I learned a lot from that goofy dog.
Thanks Roo for being my friend. I will miss you more than I can say.
Now you can run again. :rainbow:

Wonderful words that paint the picture of a lovely companion...

Best wishes for you and your husband, may the pain slowly fade, yet the memories stay strong!
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe

He sounds like a great dog, :hug: my sympathies to you and your husband
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)
