Stephan and Susan,
I am so sorry you have lost your handsome Ninja. One of the other guardians wrote this, "A dog is not your whole life, but they make your life whole." I wholeheartedly agree! I can see that you have had a wonderful pack. How blessed you were to have them all in your life. I, too, had a "pizza dog." Reggie, a beagle, knew that word from the first letter. He's been gone since 1994 and I still have Reggie stories to tell. He was my second beagle. I'm now on my seventh, Levi (6). My boy, Quinn, is here at the Bridge site.
I hope many cherished memories will help ease your sorrow in the weeks to come. It's always hard to say goodbye, but Ninja is now in a safe place, healthy and happy, and with his pack. RIP, dear Ninja.
