The week before he passed away I took him to New York to get him on national tv. It took some doing but on Saturday, October 30th he was on the CBS Early Show with Ira Fisher. I cannot thank CBS enough for making my dream become a reality. He died one week later on the following Sunday, while I was in California. I believe he did this to spare me the grief of having to deal with him dying. I had his veterinarian keep him in the cooler so I could say "good-bye" when I returned one week later. It was the most difficult thing I ever had to do, but I am glad that I did it. He was the most precious dog there has ever been. He has left a mark on the community as well. He leaves a big hole in my heart, and I will miss him terribly, just as the many others whose lives he has touched. Bart boy, I love you two pizzas! "The day they said that you had died, it truly broke my heart. Lord knows there will never be another dog like Bart." I even wrote a book about him, called, "A DOG NAMED BART" which was published the summer of 2003!|
