On March 7, 2014, I said goodbye to my Parker (“Parkie”) who was around 15 years old. Parker was fiesty and full of personality and used to love to play all the time. Recently, he had become completely blind and had trouble hearing. He exhibited Alzheimer’s symptoms and was getting confused and that scared him. He died relaxed in my arms with the family dog and picture of my father cooincidentally close by reminding me of where Parker got his middle name and reminded me of how special Parker was to a few members of my family.
He had the most beautiful white coat and pretty green eyes and i will always remember his uniqueness and the serendipity of how he came to live with us and how he left us. I am grateful for Parker and he is always in our hearts.
