Yesterday we lost our beloved Bonus (Ch. LegaSea's Icing on the Cake, JH). He was just 7 years old. A massive seizure took his life. I can hardly hold back the tears, I can hardly bear the grief that I know lies ahead as we face life without him. Rest in peace my beloved Bonus. You gave us more than we could ever have asked for. I know that you are running free, that you don’t hurt anymore, you don’t limp anymore; the white is gone from your face and you will never, ever again have to have your ears cleaned, your toenails clipped or have one of those horrible seizures…never, ever again.

We love you so precious Bonus.

I'm very sorry for your loss of Bonus. Seizures are so scary and to lose a dog to one is unthinkable. Remember the good times you had with him.

Patti-
Words cannot express the pain I feel for you. I wasn't that long ago when Bonus gave you your start in this game and paved the way for Alli. I've gotten to know you well over the past couple years and more recently your husband too. I know how the both of you feel about your dogs. There is nothing I can say that will ease you or Larry's pain right now but you said it best....there is no more pain for Bonus. May God give you flyers Bonus....

Joe, thank you so much; you were one of the few who knew Bonus when he was running hunt tests. You all used to tease me so and were all so very, very nice to us...your support made me feel so included; even though Bonus was obviously a "show dog" you cheered me on and encouraged me...laced with humor and fun! You are right, Bonus paved the way for Alli; and oh how she has changed my life. Bonus does have only flyers now and all the lake he can swim in and every hour is "cookie time"....

I am so very sorry to hear of your sudden loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. When we lose a beloved one, there is always an empty spot in our hearts and homes. But they are whole again, happy to watch over us and wait for us to join them. Take care and be kind to yourself during the healing process.

Patti, I'm so sorry for your loss, what a terrible thing to have happen. You had far too short of time together. I hope Bonus is at peace now, painfree and chasing birds. May his memories bring you comfort.
