Jean in TN's Pup Floyd
Floyd as a puppy in happier days
I just received a sad e-mail from Jean that I will share with you; many of us who have been around for awhile knew Floyd as one of the "family" of garden helpers:
"My post on gardenweb was made two hours before Floyd got sick. Many people have since asked me how he is doing, so feel free to pass this on as I have not had the heart to respond. My beloved Floyd, the original big fluffy dog, died Saturday after a very short and very hard fought one week battle with what we think was liver disease (results are not back from the lab). He was seven years old. He was certainly one of the great loves of my life and I will miss him more than I can say. He had a magnificent life and he was loved from day one. He was a jolly soul and if there is such a thing as dog heaven, I hope he is there now with his smiling goofy face in a big bowl of food with a pile of stuffed animals waiting to be tossed in the air. He leaves behind two beloved (and aggravating) dog sisters and a dog brother who adored him and 3 cats who always walked over him to get to the water bowl. He was friend to enumerable fosters (even Felco) who came through our doors over the years. He was one of a kind and although I am heartbroken, I am grateful I had him for the time I did.
Floyd would not want anyone to be sad for him. Instead, he would want you to pet your dog, thank the heavens above that you have such a
wonderful dog and give him or her an extra biscuit in Floyd's honor.
Thanks for thinking of me.
Please keep Jean and Floyed in your prayers, pet your pup and give him or her an extra biscuit for Floyd.
