RIP Dodger the Akita

Postby Northwood » Sun Jan 21, 2018 3:54 pm

Well, this is a really really sad day for us at Northwood that I must report our only male Akita, Dodger, who reached the age of 11, passed away today, January 21, 2018 at approximately noon Eastern Standard time,

He passed on after a week long battle with a mystery illness. Every effort was made to determine what was the root cause, but we and the vets could ascertain that in time to save him. Treatment theories and methods were in vain. He died in my arms.

Dogs in our family are just that, they are extensions of our human family. He was one of my very best friends ever.

Rest in Peace Dodger, we love you forever.

Years ago I started a blog and quickly discovered that I didnt have that much to write about, so I made it read as if Dodger was posting the news... silly, but it is a fun chronicle of his life. We have had many dogs, and still have three as of this passing, its never easy, usually its the final ride that takes them, today, we did not beat him to it, it was very sad.

We are crushed. :(

I am so sorry for your loss Robin & family :cry:

I know exactly how you feel, from our experiences here with pets we've lost.

Seems that Karen & I have more feelings for our pets ( and other animals ) than a lot of humans we know.

Nothing I can say to make you feel better Robin, just another one of those time will heal things.

You guys take care and remember the good times with Dodger.
