MOOSE July 2004 – March 2014
HE taught me patience, understanding and kindness.
He was my confident, my conspirator, my fellow prankster.
He taught me how to truly laugh and smile from within.
He was my lift when I was heavy and kept me grounded when I was high.
He taught me loyalty and courage. Taught me to be grateful and showed me peace.
He taught me how to listen and taught me how to play. He taught me how to love and live each day.
He taught me that the best things in life are indeed free; that unconditional friendship, love, and kindness only make you richer and really cost you nothing.
There is so much more that I could say about him; there are so many more lessons I learned.
He was my Teacher. He was my very best friend. He was my DOG.
I will forever remember all You taught me.
I will forever remember You my MOOSE.
I will always Love You and Miss You.
We will see each other again.

He has worked as a vet tech since 1999 in local animal hospitals and clinics.
