Good-Bye Our Friend
It is always sad to lose a friend. We love them and want them to be with us forever. But it seems to be a particularly sad day today because we have lost Charlie, ChuxBux, Tormentor of Opy. Without Charlie, there would be no Dogs With Blogs, no Christmas Card Exchange, no vast network of dog loving people who share in the victories and come together with compassion in times of sadness.
Our hearts go out to Greg, Brooke and Opy. Charlie's trip to the Bridge has left a big void in our lives. We can't even imagine how this has affected them. We send our love and support to you across the miles separating us. We are confident you will receive it because of the great work you have done with Charlie at the helm.
Nothing can ease the pain of the loss, but we hope you will find comfort in knowing that Charlie had the best life ever. He had the best mom and dad ever. He even had the best sister ever (though he might have argued that point). He does not need any medications to feel his best. He is enjoying the sunshine and smelling the flowers at the Bridge until it is time for his family to be together again.
