Best Dog Ever - Chase (bubby-roo)

My family and I are still reeling from the passing of our super sweet dog Chase yesterday. He was only 5-1/2 years old, but for the past month his health had slowly deteriorated due to probable kidney failure. During that month he had improved for several days, especially on Christmas eve when he actually played with his presents and even chased after them when we threw them for him. I can't explain why, but Chase's passing has been the hardest thing for me. His love for me and my family--wife, two daughters and their husbands was beyond anything I've ever seen. He had such an awesome personality and loved everyone. I know this sadness will pass, but I know the hurt will linger for a time I can't predict. I love you Chase and you are already so very missed. You were the best bubby ever.

Thanks Chase for being a part of our lives and giving us memories that we will cherish forever, Dad

Dogs are family members and I am so sorry for your loss. Since there is a restoration of the animal kingdom in Heaven, I often wonder if we will ever see our beloved pets again. It is not at all in the Bible that we'll see our pets again, but neither does it say we won't. So we can only hope. After all, God says it is better than anything we can think or ask. Blessings to your and your family.
