      It was 3 years ago today that I lost my boy Bruce. A large piece of my heart also died that day. Bruce was just 20 months old when he left me, and in that short time a bond was formed that will never be broken. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him, sometimes it makes me smile, sometimes it brings a tear.

      Bruce you left me much too soon, but I will always cherish the time I was able to spend with you. Run Free my Sweet, Handsome Boy.

      Bruce the day after his arrival from England, just over 10 weeks old.

      A happy one year old.

      This was the last picture taken of Bruce. It was a great day playing on the beach, retrieving, and doing the things he loved.

      Hugs to you, Barry. He was such a handsome boy and an awful loss.

      I remember what a punch in the gut that announcement was, I can't even imagine how hard it was for you. He and Thor were so close in age, and I think of him often too.

      Barry, your boy was a special pup, he may have come from England, but he was our all American Lab.

      Hugs to you during this time of difficult rememberance. Rest gently sweet Bruce.

      I vividly remember reading your post about Cookie. I felt like I got punched in the gut when I read that so soon after what happened to Bruce. I know it was a long road, and I'm so happy Cookie made it through that.
