Eddie "Special Ed" Stroud, 2/17/2004 -
Sweet, Sweet Eddie Kitty Boy - you will be so missed, but I know
that you are with Mei Lin and she's taking such good care of
you. What a terrible birthday you had. You have been a
true friend, and helped us through kids, graduations, cancer
treatments and surgeries, and deaths -and have always been such a
loving, happy kitty. I know I'll be reunited with you again
- but until we are together again, you are in our hearts. We
were so blessed to have you share your life with us!
Ender, November 15, 2005 - March 10,
Today I lost the best buddy that I have had. In my 60s, I've had
many dogs, but this loss was the toughest yet. My Ender was by my
side every day since the end of 2005. He slept on our beds. He was
the most peaceful, friendly animal ever to grace our home.
Everyone who met him loved him. He was a mixed breed that
turned out great. He had the handsome face and head of his German
Shepherd ancestry, and the sleek and lightning fast body of his
Husky mother. Into his 12th year of life, he had never had a
health issue, but within 8 weeks, he failed rapidly. Many
Thanks to the wonderful doctors and staff at Twin Oaks Veterinary
Hospital, for trying so hard to heal and save him, and to Dr.
Tompkins, for being there at the end. She came to our home
to help him end his suffering. He passed, in the company of
his doctor and me and with his Malamute brother and sister at his
side. He now has no more pain and suffering, and peace has
descended upon his life. Ender will be missed by our entire
family, especially by my son, who found the puppy at a friend's
home, back in his high school years. Thank you Ender for gracing
this home with your 11+ years, spending time with your people,
your cats, and your Malamute siblings. Run free and fast,
sweet Ender, and I will see you at the Bridge.
