My Life as a San Francisco Realtor: Those Were the Days, My Friend...

Those Were the Days, My Friend...

Those Were the Days, My Friend...

We Thought They'd Never End

We lost our dearest and oldest Chow Friend Rico today. 1/1999 - 06/01/2012.

Our two other Chows, Kevin and Ponche will miss him dearly, not to mention Tjoman and myself. I see him everywhere he used to be, always sitting by my chair so I had to step over him. His beautiful eyes and bright smile... I hope you enjoy doggy heaven my sweet.....

John, sorry to hear about your loss, they are definitely very special friends, always there for you, never complaining, and no one is more excited to see you when you get home.

I have a 14 year old chocolate lab and every day I wonder how many days we will have left with Mocha, she thinks she is still apuppy, but her hearing is definitely going.

so sorry to hear it... I had two of my long time pets pass away last year and I still miss them daily. Sincerest condolences to you...

Oh John, I am so sorry and feel your loss of a best friend.  I lost 2 some years back and I still think and remember them with joy and tears.  Beautiful pictures of Rico.

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts. I thought I responded to this already, guess I just wasn't ready. It's been one week from that day, and I still see him in my mind around the house. But when I see photos like the 2nd one above..... Thanks again!
