    Today the Cutterpup has stopped running

    Being born with a heart murmur didn't stop Cutter from doing things most dogs could only dream of. He hiked, went rock climbing and backpacked, wearing his own pack. He passed his CGC at the age of four months, home schooled. In obedience class he was valedictorian. He was equally at home running agility courses as he was at horse shows lounging beside the feet of his equine friends. In his later years Cutter spent part of his time at the nursing home with me, keeping an elderly hospice resident company while I worked in my office. At the home front Cutter rode herd on various cats and was there as his two teenaged companions grew to adulthood and moved to homes of their own. His role as family protector became was never more pronounced than when first Liam, then Molly joined the family. He was never more vigilant than when they were over to visit. Today, the heart which had never failed, despite the murmur becoming worse over the years, stopped beating. Cutter had been in our lives for over sixteen years. He will be remembered forever.

    It sounds like he had a great and full life. I'm sure he's having a great time, wherever he is.

    I am so sorry to hear this, I know how hard it is to lose a pet of many years. Not terribly long ago my family had to put down our dog of 12 1/2 years. It sounds like you had many great years with him, though, so dwell on the memories of times you enjoyed and not the loss, and your Cutter will always stay near.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
