Finley 1995 - May 12 2006

Our "old boy" Finley died this morning.
He had been struggling for about a month with cancer of some sort, becoming very weak in the last few days.

And early this morning he was just too tired to go on.

Ruby discovered that he had died about 1AM and she woke us up by repeatedly going in and out of the dog door, into the bedroom and back out.

Finley was our oldest Dobe, but newest to the family. After dog sitting Finley a couple times in the last two years, we adopted him this January.

Ruby and Sterling and Sofi were able to have a few sniffs of Finley this morning, and they all seemed to understand that he is gone. Sofi reacted the most after she sniffed and nudged at his ear, she seemed startled and quickly moved away.

He was gentle and kind and loved everyone he met.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Finley -- what a beautiful boy. Handsome would be a better word. Having just lost my 15 year old, I can relate.

My best to you and your family,
