Words can’t possibly explain the joy Ted brought to our family, friends, and neighbors. A neighbor behind our house removed part of their fence and put in a gate so Ted could visit â€“ and so they could come over to visit him. Another family who recently kept Ted during a short vacation also started coming over to take him for walks around the park â€¦ when they heard of his loss, they wrote us a note saying â€œ.. as you know, we adored Ted and treasured our walks â€¦ we don’t think we’ ever met a nicer, kinder, sweeter dog â€¦ thanks for sharing him with us â€¦â€
As you recall, Ted was also a certified therapy dog and Lauren frequently took him to school in her free time so troubled teens could enjoy him in the youth counseling center. And we can’t remember the number of times we met a family with a young child on a walk who asked to pet Ted because he looked so friendly â€¦ we later learned from their parents that Ted was the first dog their child wanted to touch after a traumatic experience with another dog. We’ve come to realize that even though Ted clearly loved our family, he was so much more than just â€œour dogâ€.
Ted died from lung cancer. Please support Canine Cancer Research.
