Our sweet Streak

We had to say goodbye to our friend of 14 years this morning. I will write more about him later, but wanted to just note that this blog community was inspired by this little guy, and everyone here has been so thoughtful and compassionate about Streak and before that, about Alafair. In fact, for a 30 pound dog, he introduced us to an awful lot of people.

Streak's blog will continue. He inspired me when he was in the room, and will continue to do so. We will all be sad for a long time. Right now, the music is off and the coffee has little flavor. But in time, the joy and sound will return. He was a very special dog and we miss him terribly.

I am so terribly sorry. What a wonderful companion Streak has been to you, and will continue to be in your memory.

God bless and comfort you both.

To Streak's friends...thanks for all your kinds words, prayers, and friendship on this blog. This community of people means a lot to us. I know many of you have gone through similar goodbyes and I appreciate your compassion and kindness so much.

Comfort to you and SOF. This blog's name is an apt reminder of the passion and fight that Streak had in him.

For now, I hope the happy memories will serve to provide comfort and an occasional smile.

Something told me to check your blog tonight; however, I'm sorry to be reading this particular post. I've been following your blog since almost the beginning, but have never commented. I'd like to express my condolences and the condolences of all your other silent readers. You and SOF's love for Streak was very evident and my heart is heavy for your family.
