Ralph - submitted by miranda

my family and I would like to thank ARRG.. we adopted our puppy Ralph, in the Christmas holidays of 1999, 14 years ago. He was 12 months old when he came into our family of 9 children, and he was a very hyperactive puppy. and he stayed a hyperactive puppy. :-) we all loved him like a brother. he was one of us, he even had his spot under the dinner table, (which us kids loved cause he ate what ever we threw down). He protected us, he loved us, he gave us his all. He has watched us all grow up and leave home. but he never forgot us. everytime we pulled up in the driveway his tail would start wagging and he was an excited little puppy again. he has seen us have our own children, and loved them just as much. 2 months ago we all took him to the beach, it was his favourite place in the world, he was 15 and was just like a puppy again running in the waves and catching crabs in the sand dunes. he has taught us that no matter who you are, what you look like, or where you have come from, family is forever, and there is always a reason to smile. sadly ralph passed away yesterday after a long battle with arthritis. he will forever be loved and never be forgotten. we want to thank you guys so much for saving our brother. we won't cry because he's gone, we will smile because he happened.

Adopted from ARRG
