Why did you leave when we weren't there to be with you? For years we felt as though your health was fading but you passed the dreaded 8 year mark... and then you surprised us by reaching 10..... and amazed us when you passed 12. I honestly thought that you were going to make 13 only 4 short months away. You were almost puppy like in your antics of late. You were eating good, you played silly Boxer tricks on us in fact you wanted to go with us in the car to the movies but I told you that you couldn't come. Two and a half hours later we returned to find that you'd left us.... omigosh.... Brooke..... Our beautiful Brooke... the foundation of our kennel.... mom to 3 Canadian Champions.... with great grand kids winning in the show ring .... your legacy will live on in your kids and their kids. We will see you every time we look into their faces. We will see you on the other side.... someday.
