Thanks Peter for calling and telling me about "Topper", it was sad news but I felt so much joy knowing he had such a happy life with you. My husband bought Topper as a Christmas present for me in 1993, and he was such a good little boy, but I had little children and some hard things going on in my life that kept me from giving him the attention he deserved. My children loved him but when we faced a transfer to California I decided that I would try to find a home before we left with someone who could spend more time with him. My children were small and very sad to leave him with you, but when we came to visit him before we left Texas we all knew we had made the right decision for him. You taught him so much, and he loved you and you loved him. You two were the perfect match and I thank you for giving him such a loving home. In my religion we believe that pets will live after this life and that they will testify about how we cared or didn't care for them, hope that comforts you.
