2007 - 2013  OUR BELOVED CHAMP!
How is it possible that a "rescue" dog, can become such an important and beloved part of our family for six years ONLY.  Oh how we miss him.  I don't want to dwell on our loss, but I do want to share some of my favorite pictures with you, of this little hero, who gave us so much, and asked so little in return.  I know that he was a hero to many of our guests too, and we MISS HIM every day.
 If any of you have special memories of him - please share them!  He was amazing...
We all know that many breeds of dogs LOVE to hunt, but there should be another category for a "hunting dog" that LIVES every moment to hunt, and hunts so PASSIONATELY, that he goes beyond what we can imagine or expect.
 Not just smart, but so handsome too!
 Truly a part of our family for 6 years, and soooo loyal!
 He never liked photos much, so seldom posed for the camera like some of our other little friends have...
He had a very unfortunate attack from an irritated warthog mid March.  He simply was unable to get away fast enough.  The xrays showed a very 'sick' liver, which we can only assume was the result of the puff adder bite last year.  He completely lost his appetite, his energy, his mobility, his wag in his tail, and his organs began to fail him.  He was very underweight, and despite all of our efforts, we were unable to nurse him back.
