I can't believe it's been three years. Sometimes it feels like yesterday he was here and sometimes it seems like he's been gone forever...

We miss you so much Chris and were honored to be part of your life.



Even when, as a young dog, you dug a mudbath in the backyard and then couldn't understand why you couldn't come in! LOL - would hate to have Chris thought of as entirely dignified!

Natalie

For some reason Chris' date of Aug 1st stays with me Natalie and I think of you each year. Hugs to both of you.

Thank you so much for using Chris's memory as a way to help others like him. I have no doubt he was a wonderful baby.

Natalie,

I meant to write yesterday on the anniversary of Chirs' crossing to the Bridge, but was ill myself and wasn't near a computer.

I will always remember your boy. He was such an inspiration to all of us and you took such wonderful care of him.

I hope he is chasing furry things and eating 'hammies' by the dozen.

Just passed the fifth year without our Christopher. We still miss you and think about you every day.

Chris, your neighbor buddy Herry passed away a few months ago and we sent her mom and dad a card with a picture of your nose and paws on it and let them know we would miss her as well.

Love the mud bath picture. The timing is ironic as Kinser is standing outside barking to come into the house. He's not allowed in at the moment because on our hike he decided to go swamp swimming just as we neared the end. Will be hosing him down shortly

Thank you for sharing Chris with all of us and for creating this site. His memory lives on every day! Though I never knew him in this life, the help he has passed along is something I'll always be thankful for.

Natalie,

I will always have a place in my heart for your Chris. Seems like it was only yesterday that he left us. Five years is a long time, but goes past so quickly.

Hugs,
Bonnie and Angel Criss Ann
