In Memory of Hodge


To our wonderful dog

Brought home in a towel, covered in fleas, with the name of Sam.

Endured numerous showers and baths the first few months

Never minded that we gave you a bald spot on the top of your head with the numerous scrubbings to de-flea you.

Enjoyed a full bag of Reese's Peanut Butter cups for Halloween.

Would stalk with a longing in his eye anyone with a Rice Krispie Treat. YUM!

Enjoyed an occasional empty peanut butter jar, never minding how we laughed at his efforts to stick his tongue in just a little further.

Chased and barked at the UPS truck with a vengeance. Then branched out to include Fedex, the mail truck, and any other delivery truck.

Never minded wearing sunglasses and hats put on by the kids.

Didn't like when we danced.

Always wanted to be where the action was.

We miss you!

Thanks so much for the tribute to a very beloved friend to all of us! Anyone who knew Hodge would agree that he was special, a great companion and protector of the children. Grandpa and I will always remember him with love and a few funny stories. We share your loss and grief.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. We often find our dog to be a bit of a nuisance at times, but we love her and I know one day she will be greatly missed. Your tribute to your sweet "Hodge" was beautiful.

*hugs*

Mike,Kris,Katie & Nick we will all miss our Hodge Podge and love the pictures on the Blog but no one will love him more than Mike and Grandpa Dick. It was his buddy and always the first one in our house to find Dick to take him for a walk and get his treats that Dick would hide in his pockets. We will love him forever and shed a tear or two for our friend forever.
