We Lost Our Sarge


Hello, Blogville Furiends.
We're so saddened with heavy hearts to announce that our Sarge has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.


He passed quietly in his sleep, and we are stunned.  We had no indication that he was having any health problems.  He was just a few weeks shy of 12 years old.  

He had a ginormous personality.   Full of quirks and fun and love.   He had his issues, but was the light of our lives.   We are heartbroken and shocked.   

Thank you all so much for sharing your lives with Sarge and joining him here for all of his antics.  Here are a few photos of our favorite memories.





































Much love to all.
Sarge's Staff
