Farewell to Fang.

Doogan is gone.  Passed on a few days ago.

I've shared a few words and images here, as a means for coping with the emptiness and grief that I feel in his absence.

Do not click that link if you're a sentimental softie like me.


  1. Thank you for sharing. Being a Golden lover myself always looked forward to Fangs next adventure. This world would be better off if every heart could be touched by a Golden. God speed Doogan.

  2. Good dogs.
    If a man is lucky (and worthy), he'll have at least one.
    "He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
    Rip in peace Fang.

  3. Sorry for your loss. That was a heck of a way to celebrate him.

  4. My beloved corgi Olivia "crosses the Rainbow Bridge" tomorrow morning after a long and happy life. Over the last week, I've had to deal with many of the same feelings. I envy the fact that you have so many great pictures to enjoy his life whenever you miss him in the future... I've got a bunch of phone cam pictures, which just don't convey Olivia's spirit the way your pictures do.

    Hang in there... it gets better as other things come along to fill the emptiness. Years from now, you'll still miss him but you won't feel as empty as you do now. That's part of being human, for better or worse.

  5. Great words Mike, and sorry for your loss. I'm sure Ted (my old golden) would be buds with Doogan.
