January 3, 2017 Always Remembered



These are by far NOT my favorite card to have to make - but our Rhodesian Ridgeback Recue coordinator had to say goodbye to her beloved boy MAX on Christmas night.  He was such a gentle giant and loved everyone that had a "snack" for him.  He had several health problems the passed couple of years including a couple of surgeries but he always bounced back.   

We made a donation in Max's honor to the Ridgeback Rescue organization as all of our Rhodesian Ridgebacks (2 full and one mix black lab/Rhodesian) have come through the rescue organization.  We have fostered several dogs waiting for their forever home, trained a beautiful little pup Elle that now has a forever wonderful home in WI. and with the mixed (black lab/Rhodesian) we are what is termed "failed fosters".  We have 3 beautiful furbabies that let us share their home with us, all weighing in at 75 to 75+ pounds, yes they eat a LOT and require daily or more of clean up in the backyard.  I wouldn't trade them for anything.

Lol....your only fostering 'fail' is that you wanna keep everyone you foster!!! Great card, dear friend. Poor T and J. Losing a pet is awful, but losing one on Christmas Day is brutal. Sending up cyber hugs to them. Thanks for sharing!
