Killian

I am sad to report that Killian went away yesterday, to a better place... a place where he had strong legs and a bowl full of roast beef whenever he wanted it. Mom and dad and I are all very sad, and miss Killian terribly, but we know he is happy again. Killian passed away in dad's arms, as strong and proud as ever.

These are some pictures of my brother, and best woofer friend.
Killian dressed up like the devil on Halloween.
Killian and mom, last summer. As usual, I am trying to get in the photo.

Killian as a puppy. He was being trained as a police dog, but he didn't like the gunshots and was put up for adoption. That is how mom found him. Right after that, mom had surgery on her feet and couldn't walk for a few weeks, and Killian never left her side.

Killian and dad, in the condo in Queens.

The whole family/pack. This was during mom and dad's engagement photos last summer.

We love you Killian... be a good boy.

They are lovely photos. Thanks for putting them up.

So sorry we didn't get chance to know him through the blog.

There is not much more we can say, just that we will be thinking of you.

My mom is very sad reading this. I hope that everyone is okay.

My uncle Jacques who was their basset before me has some pretty big paws to fill.

I know that I am not going to be him, but I know that he's smiling down from doggie heaven at some of my antics.

Smooches to you all and Killian, Jacques liked his roast beef on the rare side with no worcestershire sauce, thank you.

Yes ernest... having big paws to fill is tough, but it is also a sign of living in a house that is full of love and affection.

I'll take my roast beef any way the dad hands it to me. I've learned a little trick of looking indifferent while he eats... he is more likely to give me some if I do this than if I am a pain in the butt. Training people is so much fun.
