Here’s Zeke at 4:54 p.m. yesterday, minutes before he expired.

Words? None. Not today.

Zeke (December 26, 2007 – September 5, 2016).

RIP.

    He is now lighter, in peace and …maybe even playing with Loretta [heavens took her a year ago]. One thing’s for sure, he carries a heavy load of love from you.

  10. Dave, I’m so sorry to hear the news. I lost Sterlibg a year ago and it is tough. Those furry friends are so special and loyal. Unless you have a Zeke or Sterling in your life, you won’t understand. May he rest in peace.

  22. No way to ‘like’ – I’m sorry for this loss. Tell your stories, they remind you and your family of what makes you complete.
    Memories may feel sad -right now- but memories become a gift. A gift to help with grieving and leaning forward.
    Peace.

  52. I’ve only just clicked through to you for the first time, from Bela’s blog, and seeing this has the whole of my heart reach out to you and not a few tears too as I lost my own dear girl (always a pup in some way to me), aged sixteen and a half at the end of last year and looking at Zeke I see her, in that pose at the end. So I send empathy and warmth in appreciation in the joy that such wonderous beings give us over so many years, from the Cloud to you. ❤

    DK, I thought I would check back in to see how your friends rallied around you during what is the toughest of times. Did you see the replies? Loads…..The responses? Heartfelt….The authenticity? Total. The connection with all of us who follow you on the blog is simply amazing….you’ve created that through all the years you’ve been blogging, so very special. We’ve all lived every pitter patter of him that you shared with us. You know he would have said thank you. No better way to close. Take care DK. Steve A.

  68. There’s no way to prepare to say good-bye to such a trusted and loyal friend. You can’t, you just stay with him and let him know how much he was loved and keep him calm and comfy as the end comes. God Bless you for doing so, it would have been much harder for him without you right there in his corner. Everything, even this, is easier for him with you there. Many hugs and tears on the loss of your beautiful friend. MJ
