*sigh*......... it's a sad, sad day... Herbie had left us for the Rainbow Bridge and it really is a terrible feeling when a friend leaves you, regardless of whether it was 'expected' or sudden. While we are all aware about Herbie's recent health problems, I always had the feeling he'd get better and revert back to his usual sweet-natured & 'gluttony' self. All of a sudden the lyrics 'no time is a good time for goodbye' keeps repeating itself in my head... And the feeling is a lot worse (and really sux) when the dog is someone that you know and met in real life, someone that you have stroked and cuddled, someone that you have given treats to, someone that you have played with.... I can still picture the look on Herbie's face as he tried to beg for food when he was well. It is not a face that many can resist!!
While reading Scuba's beautiful tribute to Herbie, I just realised that without Herbie and his M, I would never have started a blog for Huskee. This is because Herbie and his M were the ones who introduced blogging to Scuba's mom, who in turn introduced me the world of blogging and to the unique family of DWB. So THANK YOU Herbie and S.
To Herbie's family: The best place to bury a dog is in the heart of it's master... Cherish all the memories of sweet Herbie.
