Goodbye Gadget

Tuesday, August 12th was a very sad day at our house. My big, baby dog Gadget died. 100 pounds of pure love. We think he got an electrical shock during the storm Monday night as the lightning was extremely close. The storm woke us up, we heard him yelp and then we let the dogs in the house. He felt really bad on Monday and just continued to get worse. I will miss taking him to the lake, walks in the woods and laying in the sun taking naps with him!! Also, watching him try to catch squirrels (never succeeding) on our walks and him trying to catching armadillos (and occasionally succeeding). He loved to go to Timothy's races and roll in the grass and warm up/run with us. What a wonderful part of our family he was and we will miss him tons. Dec. 1999 - Aug. 2008
