Goodbye Whitefoot


A week has passed, and I can now write about the loss of our beloved Whitefoot. A huge thunderstorm scared her off the boat, and she ran away, only to be struck and killed by a car 2 miles away. It was raining hard, with slick roads and bad visibility, and the driver would not have been able to avoid her.

We were in the process of putting up posters in the area the next morning, when one lead led to another, and I drove to the site of the accident to find her.

We are grateful to have her ashes with us, and plan to spread them on the ocean soon.

Rachel has been incredibly strong, and continues to impress Kathy and I with her maturity and understanding of the world around her.

Safe voyages, Whitefoot!

It's a shame to lose such a great companion. I will never look at a tennis ball the same way. We had lots of fun with those raggedy old tennis balls.
I remember the day I lost Max. It was a bad day. I know how you must feel.

How many dogs have been able to share all of those wonderful adventures? Whitefoot was a great dog, and had a wonderful life.
