I am so sorry, for you, for your family. I lost Bronki suddenly due to cancer when he should have been in his prime.7 is when they should feel their best, with all those glorious years ahead and I am still angry and feel cheated, i am betting your going through all of that same kind of thinking. IT's No FAIR. I won't say all those feel better things because they won't change anything. I will just send my love and that I am grateful that Uncle FRed had all of you with him to see him across the bridge. THere is some comfort in that. I am really sorry Dr. Mom. I will truly miss him, Uncle Fred is a CHazhound classic and always will be.

there are no words--I know how much you loved Uncle Fred, and how much he loved you. I so enjoyed your many stories, and know that you gave him a wonderful home--he knew love. ((HUGS)) to you and your family.

Thank you everyone- all of your thoughts and prayers are much appreciated. I can't believe he isn't here. All of us keep thinking we need to take him out, feed and water him, etc. He is so intertwined in our lives I don't know how long it will take for his loss to actually sink in. A week ago he was so thoroughly healthy.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad that he got to pass away in the arms of all who loved him. I don't think I was around when you were active but from what I'm reading, he was an amazing dog.

Horribly abused as a pup, and extremely traumatized and timid when we got him, Uncle Fred became a courageous, loyal and loving dog. He was an ambassador for his breed. I know at least 5 people who now own coonhounds because they wanted an Uncle Fred-all are rescues. He had style. I have this video on my iphone from a couple of months ago of him dancing and howling on command for me. He would get into a play bow position, and then rear up in the air to get maximum volume out of the howl. "Aroooooo!!"
.
A beautiful tribute that should make him very proud. Run Free Uncle Fred keep your tail a wagging. (((((((((((((((HUGS and more Hugs)))))))))))))
