During his wild rides, we would take care of his beautiful dogs, Murray & Madison. They were Australian Shepherds, one red and one tri-colored. Murray, the red, passed a few years ago. I know that our friend lost a piece of his very being when Murray died. He allowed Madison to go to Murray and in her own way understand that Murray was gone. I absolutely respect him for that. He buried him on the shore that Murray so loved to run.
As the last few years have skittered by, we have lost the connection that we had with our friend, although we have always cherished the friendship and respect that we have felt for him.
Today, we received this from our friend:
R.I.P. December 10. 2008.
13 years 7 months.
Madison, Donner LakeJune 5, 2008
13 years 1 month
Thanks to you and Lisa for the massive love back in the day........
My heart breaks for you, Aaron, because I know how you felt about these magnificent animals and I remember the respect and the absolute devotion & love that they had for you. It was an honor to know these wonderful dogs!
God bless our four legged friends!
