Our Alaric


We are going to send our lovely boy Alaric to heaven today at 3:00 pm. Alaric is 14 years old and it's time. Alaric is a Large Munsterlander, a versatile hunting dog. From the time he was just a few weeks old it was easy to see hunting was in his genes. We would put a bird feather on the end of a fishing line and his little puppiness would point. My husband hunted pheasant, chuckers, quail, you name it w/ Alaric for many years and he always did his job in the field. He's a lovely dog and we will miss him terribly. Alaric xoxo

It's so hard to put an animal down, they become part of your family. But when it's time, it's too hard for them to have a good life, it's best for them. You have to do the right thing, even though it tears you up.

My condolances and thoughts are with you.

I'm so sorry for you at this time. I know you are heartbroken. I bet Alaric's four-legged companions are going to be upset without your boy, too. Fortunately, he had a long life, in doggy years, and knew he was well-loved by Mama and Daddy.

Oh dear... I wish you both big hugs and Peace in knowing your sweet Alaric is running free and chasing lots of birds and pointing them out for The Big Guy.....
When you are ready, you must see Marley & Me, or read the book... It is a gem for anyone who has had a dog as a family member..

Hugs, hugs, hugs...
