Rudy
8/18/2012 - 1/22/2021Rudy, oh our sweet boy Rudy.
Thank you for waiting for us at the shelter 8 yrs ago. The moment we saw you in that cage we knew fate had brought us together. You stole our hearts, it was love at first site, and you would never be in a cage again. Ever.

You were so handsome, so smart and so willing to please. You loved (obsessed with) chasing the tennis ball and it never grew old. You loved being free to run outside, take out the trash, fetch the paper, shop at the hardware store, and terrified when it thundered. Every morning you came into our room, waited patiently for us to awake, then greeted us like it was the best day of our lives. And it was.

Getting liver cancer at 9 yrs old was devastating news. We cried when you weren't looking and cared for you for months - until your last breath. Our hearts are broken and we miss you so much. The "Rudy on Duty" sign will stay up forever. And when it thunders in heaven, Grammy will be there to protect you.

Love,
Mom and Dad

Rudy is now on duty in Heaven and leading the best tennis ball chasing ever, but without pain or suffering! Rudy hit the lottery 8 years ago and is so thankful for an amazing Mom & Dad! I am so sorry Rudy’s life here with you was cut short, but I know he lived life to the fullest thanks to you! Rudy was such a cutie and I know he is missed, but I also know he gave you 8 great years of unconditional love and wonderful memories to keep him alive in your hearts forever. RIP sweet Rudy!

Rudy did a great job picking the perfect family for him. I bet there are tennis balls in heaven and he is having a ball playing with Grammy!Faye Sparks - February 6, 2021
I am so sorry for your loss. It has been just over one year since I lost my little dog to hemangiosarcoma (cancer of the blood vessels). I am sure you did all you could for your dog. I am still struggling with whether I could have done more.
Best wishes.
