This is the day we always know will come but we hope and pray does not. This is the day that over the past couple years I thought was here only to witness her make amazing recoveries. This is not about the loss but instead it is about the gift we were blessed and privileged to enjoy for the past 13 ½ years. It is the day we will CELEBRATE our girl Keeper, as we promised her and her granddaughter, Kizmet, we would do. Those of you who know me, know the bond Keeper and I have had over the years. She was and will always be THAT dog to me. She has taken us to places we would not have otherwise been. She has taught me that to be a team player you need to trust your partner. But mostly she has allowed us to be a part of her life and for that I am a better person, I believe. We will miss her head nudges to get our attention when she felt it was time for someone to pay attention to her. We will miss the happy trot out the front door in the morning to retrieve the newspaper. We will miss her flopping on her back as soon as she knew she had you and you would have to rub her belly. We will miss her never ending wagging tail that could clear off the coffee table in a single pass. I am happy I was there to help her when she needed me the most and that some where I found the strength to do so. Above all we will miss the “GOOD DOG” she has been since the day she entered our lives. Please join us in our CELEBRATION as today we will celebrate our Keeper. For there will be far too many tomorrows for tears.
Rest well and play hard till we meet again sweetie. Give Brandi and Kizmet kisses for us. Till we meet again at the Bridge know you will forever live in our hearts.

Oh Hank I am so sorry. I know through all of your past posting how much Keeper meant to you. I love that you choose to celebrate her life and the joy that she brought you. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Hank, Joyce and Julia,

What a great blessing you all have had for more than a decade! Keeper sounds like the perfect housemate, bringing pleasure and joy every day, reminding you that it's the little things in life that can be the most rewarding. Shine on, Keeper, as you make new friends at the Bridge and wait patiently to be reunited with your human loved ones. Your people will miss you dearly, so send them a sign that you've arrived safely.....

With condolences on your loss,
Molly

What a wonderful tribute to a dog who had such a strong spirit and love for life. Those Good Dogs are rare treasures, for sure!

You missed one: We will miss your whining, kissing, peeing greetings after any one of us had been away for more than a day or two.

She wasn't our first golden... but in many ways Keeper is the one who started it all for us. If not for her, I wouldn't have this goofy fluff-ball lying on top of me right now. She forever changed what it means for us to have a dog in our lives. She was my girl-- the first dog I ever "owned," even if I had to share her with my dad... and she was his heart. She was a once-in-a-lifetime dog and I count myself lucky to have spent nearly half my life with her in mine.

I love you sweet girl... my Queen Bitch. Play hard with Brandi and Kizmet. And know I'll always carry you with me.

So sorry for your loss of Keeper.

When we have our "heartdog" for longer than we expected, everyday is a gift, and a definite reason for a celebration. We will all miss Keeper.
