  5. So sorry for your loss.

    I lost a border collie named Hondo five years ago. We raised him up along with the boys. He was a special companion. I understand that quote.

  7. Thank you all so much for your kindness. We all feel unexpectedly lost. Hoover had a huge personality and he filled our home to an extent we only now realize.

  8. Oh Gail I'm so very sorry. You know that I know. Tears here in Ohio from another of Hoover's admirers. How lucky you were to have each other. And your pictures are bringing back so many memories of Yukon. He slept exactly like Hoover did.

  10. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I'll always remember your special Mr. Bartky, even though we never met! In a way, I think we met via the near-miracle of cyberspace.

    You take care, and I look forward to more of your grt posts!

  12. Oh, Hoovb, how sad! I didn't want this post to be what I thought it was, but I loved getting to know Hoover through his photos - so happy and comical and full of personality. I know the loss is heavy and painful for you and your family. I've lost a Sweet Boy, too. It's a hard thing not to have him close to you anymore, to touch and to hug, but he's always there with you.
