    Default The One Who Started It All

    North Mountain Ripley, MH/QAA August 28, 1994 - December 19, 2007.

    She was herself.

    She is over the Rainbow Bridge, no doubt trying to arrange things to her liking.

    She left suddenly last night. She had a full dinner, was tearing around the livining room roaring like a lioness at the boys then walked into the bedroom and laid down and died. As if she had them all sorted out and her work here was done.

    We miss you baby girl.

    #1. She's the one with the bumper. Her Grandson Worf in the center and her Son Riker on the right. The boys wouldn't dare take it from her either.

    #2. Just a nice picture of her in the sun.

    #3. Me running Ripley in her last trial, a super singles event. I had to hold her, since she had lost her hearing she figured she didn't need to wait for her name anymore.

    I always figure that whenever a good dog passes away, that a good duckhunter must have passed away too and needs a good dog in the happy hunting grounds, RIP to them both, I hope the migration never ends.

    Puppy breath is a good cure, sorry for your loss. Brad

    My condolences, they are never with is long enough.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
