We adopted Walter at age 9 from an elderly woman who could no longer care for him. We took him to our mountain home to live. He climbed mountain and swam in lakes, ran and played with our other pets, Sam and Charlie. He lived a fun filled life for the nearly 4 years we had him. He was my constant companion at work and home. He loved the kids and grand kids, his little tail wagging when they came around.
My heart is broken but I cherish the time we had together. He will always be a part of our family. Rest in peace little buddy.
