    Default HRCH Rock N Roll Thunder - 2/28/96 - 8/8/08

    I had Elvis put to sleep this morning. I doubt I ever have another dog with such natural talent. He was a marking fool and would do anything to get a bird. I co-owned him with Kim Moses. I bet they are out training right now.

    As Terry Jones used to say when Elvis would break during a finished test - "Elvis has left the building"

    I'll miss you old guy.

    Joe,

    So sorry to here about Elvis. He was a neat dog and loved to watch you guys work. I know it is hard what you are going through, and I dread the day I have to do the same with my old guy.

    Thoughts are with you and the family,

    Aw. Joe, I'm so sorry -- especially on top of the passing of the Moses'. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Here's to great memories... Godspeed Elvis.

    Sincerely,

    No matter how long you have to prepare in advance of actually having to do so, it is always the hardest thing in the world to say goodbye.

    Godspeed Elvis
