"I found your site the day after my dog lost his battle with
heartworms, liver and kidney failure. I just wanted to leave a
picture of my best friend where others could see him, and share a
little about him. His name was Teddy (goofy) Bear born on May 15,
2000 and parted this world May 21, 2004. Goofy was the most loving,
loving canine I have ever had; he never met a stranger, and brought
a better quality of life to everyone that ever met him.
He LOVED children, never a bark, growl or nip at anyone, especially
children. He would attend Easter egg hunts, football, and baseball
games on a regular basis. The cheerleaders made him a regular on
the sidelines, but had to hold his mouth during the singing of the
National Anthem or he would help sing it.
This little fellow made me feel like I was the most important person
in the world, Every day he would meet me at the door, tail wagging
and a bark to say welcome home. I really miss my best friend.
