Poncho



Poncho
1998 - 2011




Marcus just called and told me that Poncho died today. They were out at the deer lease and he got stepped on by a cow! Thankfully he died right away and didn't have to suffer.

He was 12 1/2 and starting to show his age. Marcus was getting prepared for this day. He couldn't have imagined how it would happen though.


This is Poncho and Blue at the deer lease. He loved it out there, because he could run and run and run.

And then rest:


Marcus and I got Poncho when we were still dating. He was the cutest puppy. I need to scan some of those puppy pictures.


He has been with us our whole marriage.


Here are the dogs meeting Katie when we brought her home from the hospital:


He loved his cousins!





Blue and Marcus are going to miss him the most. The 3 of them are best friends!







Stupid Cow! I think I will go and eat a hamburger now!



We will miss you Poncho!

I'm sorry for your loss. I have two doggies too including an old poodle who is showing his age (13). I keep telling him he has to live forever.

Go eat a HUGE burger at Sonic. So sorry for your loss.

As regards to your other post, I too have a yellow house and lurve me some red flowers. But I also wonder if people will pull up and order a Happy Meal. However, I see your pics and don't even think that. I just love your style.

Hugs!

So sorry about Poncho. It is so hard losing a pet. Our cat died 3 weeks ago suddenly. We got her from the Humane Society just 3 months prior and she just died - no warning. Our other cat was so confused. And, I cried for 2 days - no kidding! I even did a blog post all about Ricky!
