Good dog

We're so sad... Elvis had cancer, and there was no hope. And yet we hoped. He died on the operating table Saturday afternoon. He was a prince.

  7. Elvis was the canine King, and he is missed. What a lucky dog, born into the Brewer family, who loved, spoiled and adored him, just as he loved, spoiled and adored you. We join you in your sorrow. xo Elvis fans, doni and bruce

  15. KJ-
    OMG. We are all sorry and heavy hearted at our house, too. He was so much smaller a decade ago--almost exactly--when we took him to your house in the white minivan. We had no idea how big he would get or how sweet he would be.

    He turned out like some gentle giant, rather Steve's daemon if you go with notion of owner-reflective creatures that appear in The Golden Compass.

    He helped raise the kids, helped guard the property, did two states and three houses, taught you about skunk management, and enriched lives even beyond your family.

    We all miss him. For his happy dogly tearing and chewing in the great beyond, I wish him all my individual lost socks that vanish into the ether. We love you, Elvis.

  17. With luck, he'll hook up with my pal Porter, who hopped the fence on this mortal coil a couple months ago.

    Good dogs are hard to say good-bye to. They take a piece of us with them, but they also leave a lot of love behind.

    My deepest sympathy.

  19. I'm so so sorry. He looks like an amazing dog. I don't think I could go through the death of another dog in my life right now and yet I would love to adopt another one.
