Pumper was a wonderful pet and friend and we'll always remember him. When he was younger, he loved to run - especially at the cabin or on the beach at Shallow Bay. He was always exceptionally good with children (of all ages). He was David's brother!
Being a "Fire Dog", Pumper knew what to do if his clothes were on fire....he'd STOP, DROP AND ROLL....he'd do it a thousand times if there was a treat involved.
If It Should Be....
If it should be I grow frail and week and pain should wake me from my sleep, then you must do what must be done, for this last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I'll understand; don't let your grief then stay your hand. For this day more than all the rest, your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many happy years, what is to come will hold no fears. You'll not want me to suffer so, when the time comes, please let me go.
I know in time, you too will see, it is a kindness you do me. Although my tail its last has waved, from pain and suffering I've been saved.
Do not grieve that it should be you who has to decide this thing to do. We've been so close, we two, these years - don't let your heart hold any tears....
Forever loved by Jo-Ann (and Linus & David)
