Farewell, sweet Lenny


Lenny died last night after having a stroke. He lived a happy 12 years, 7 of which were shared with our family. He brought us joy and humor every single day.

Thank you to all of Lenny's wonderful DWB friends for some great memories. He is with some of them now.

RIP Lenny, 7/12/1998 - 3/20/2011
Thank you, sweet little buddy

Lenny is with tons of our old friends right now at the Bridge...my last two foxies personally welcomed him, I am sure.

I am so sorry that your Lenny has gone!! I know how sad it is when you lose one.
My girl is 13.6 years old next week!! Every day I wonder when something like that is going to happen to Bambi. It is going to kill
me!! Some say go out and get another dog right away but so far I have not been able to do that. It takes time for me to grieve. I am truly sorry for your lose!!

We were away for a few days and just saw this sad news. Lenny was one of our earliest pals -- and you know how much we cherished his name and his namesake!!!

We -- and our Mom -- are sending you love to help heal the wounds from his departure -- but we know he'll be having a ball with all of his foxy and other friends across the Bridge.

It's rough to lose such a dear furry companion, especially such a clever boy as Lenny. The PawOlympics was one special event that we will always cherish!!!

Wirey love, Jake, Just Harry, and Mom, Joan

You know. Our blogaversary is today. Two years. It's hard to believe. We remember being overwhelmed by the wonderful dogs (and cats and families) that we met. Lenny among them. We never had any idea how much like family they would all become. When a dog (or kitty or human) passes, it's like one of our own family that leaves us. Just as we enjoy the good times, we grieve for the sad.

We hope you are beginning to feel some comfort in the memories that you will always have with Lenny. Like we suggested earlier, take time to jot down all ... and we mean ALL ... of the little quirks and memories of him. Challenge yourself to remember yet one more, and write it down. Keep adding to the list for the next several weeks and months. Years from now you will have ALL the memories at your fingertips ... and it will be as if he is there with you. As he is. In your hearts.

We are so sad ... and now we are going to cuddle up with Moma as she pulls out the list of memories of Kizzy and Molly before us.

Much love
Jake and Fergi and OurMoma, too

Run free dearest Lennie.Wiry love Eric xxxxxxxxx

Even his photo, I send to our Verdi, hanging from our tree of friends, and stay there with a picture of Verdi
