2/14/2014 - 10/9/2019Oh Estes, we will miss your hugs, kisses, eye contact, and silly [almost always] wet beard. You were such an inspiration to both of us; you were so kind, loving, and thrived off of living in the moment. Estes, you were the MOST intelligent dog we've ever met and so intuitive. We're so grateful that you were able to pass so peacefully and without struggle - we're happy that you didn't have to suffer very much and were able to live a full, loving, and rich life with dad, mom, and Peachy. Peachy lays in your bed now and she rubs her face all over - she really misses you so much. Peachy asked us to keep your bed around so that she can lay in it from now on and we told her "sure - Estes would probably want that". In some of our darkest moments, you were there - without hesitation - to lick our tears, lay your chin on our lap (or lay your chin on the couch near our legs), and just because - you love us regardless of our "bad days" or "good days". The house is so empty without your loving prance meandering throughout - the other day I noticed that there were scratch marks all over the floor because you had a hard time walking on the hardwood; it brought tears to my eyes. We love you so much, Es-T the wonder pup. Your thoughtfulness and kindness has taught us so much - we promise to pay it forward and treat everyone with dignity and respect - fur or not.Denver, ColoradoOctober 12, 2019

Estes was a good boy! He was always smiling and happy. His happiness was infectious and at times even changed the mood I was in that day. I'll miss hearing his loud barks saying "hey Jason, how are you doing? Let's play!". So much energy, I didn't know where he got it from. You always had a place in your heart for me and I felt the same way. I miss you buddy.Jason Mccabe - October 18, 2019

Estes, we were so lucky to get to know you and your sweet energy. You were instantly our friend with no hesitation. Your mom and dad love you so much, and I know they are grateful your life was able to be spent with them. The house feels like there’s a big hole in it. None of us will ever forget you. I will miss your bearded dog smile and innocent playfulness. I know your spirit is blessing others while you wait to be with your family again. Run free and play hard up there, Estes. Til we meet againCally Smith - October 17, 2019
I miss you so much buddy. The house feels really empty without you around. I miss waking up with you in the morning and going on our morning walk. It’s so hard to get used to life without you. I love you and miss you.Joe Haefling - October 14, 2019
