Cruise 2001 - 2009
Cruise – we miss you terribly.
There isn’t a day that goes by that isn’t filled with a million wonderful memories.
You came to us as a cute, fat little puppy that loved to tear around the house and fetch “whatever.” You soon became our shadow – following us everywhere and trying to convince us to “just throw the darn ball.”
We will remember your sensitive, thoughtful eyes that always told us you loved us. The fun times we had were many – road trips to Copper Mountain and Cleveland; hikes around Pineridge Reservoir, Arapahoe Bend ponds or even to the top of Horsetooth; swimming in the ponds, lakes and streams to fetch a bumper; and running to the top of Vail pass.
You always welcomed visitors with a huge bark but had to have a toy in your mouth and a constant wagging and thumping of the tail. You were taken from us too soon and the eight years we had will always be treasured.
We miss your presence but will always hold you in our hearts.
Sleep well my sweet boy and see you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
