Why Are Dog's Lives so Short?
CJ in better times
Facts about our beloved CJ
Valued member of the Colt House since 2000
Adopted from a Dog Rescue home after being abused by a mean man
We loved the stuffing out of him for ten years
He liked to groan when he was really comfortable
He talked - having a whole vocabulary of squeeks, moans, and barks
CJ on his last day on earth
"Not the least hard thing to bear when
they go from us, these quiet friends,
is that they carry away with them so
many years of our lives. Yet, if they
find warmth therein, who would
begrudge them those years that they
have so guarded?
And whatever they take,
be sure they have deserved."

We love ya, CJ. Rest in peace.
