We Lost Flash Today

Our lives, our home, our family are irretrievably changed today. We lost Flash today, our beloved black lab who came to us as a 10 month old pup in 2007. We are heartbroken.

He had a routine visit to the vet earlier today, but had worsened breathing problems after that, and never quite recovered. In his last moments he wanted to be out in his back yard, which he certainly considered his domain and where he loved to be no matter the weather. It was cool today but sunny, and he left us in the warm sunlight.

I can’t write anymore now, I cannot see the screen because my tears are too heavy. But here are some pictures from an album we made for Flash in 2015. My heart is broken. I miss you so much.

    Elaine and Gordo-

    Flash looks like a great dog and we also know how sad it is to lose a family member – especially one who never argues with you, is always happy to see you, and thinks you’re the greatest thing since sliced bread. We lost Abby about a year ago and still feel the loss. Our son and his family have Ella – also a black lab – who is a wonderful family member, especially with the kids.
    I’m sure you have many years of great memories with Flash and hope you will find some comfort in them. Living with you guys, I know Flash had a great life and was one lucky dog.

    Gordo and Elaine,
    So sad….we’ve been down that road and it’s tough. Memories don’t fade but the smiles come easier in time. Take care of yourselves please
