We resisted for years. We knew that getting another Great Dane would break our hearts, as it had done in the past. But then we met your dad, JR, and fell in love. We waited two years for you to come along. It was one of the happiest days of our lives when we went to pick you up in North Carolina. Your breeder met us half way. You were so cute and small, and the minute we picked you up, you cuddled. The rest is history. You gave us seven years of pure bliss. Your love was our constant. We love and miss you so much. Remy and Cappy miss you so much also.
Once in a lifetime, someone as special as you comes along. We were so blessed to have you in our lives, even though you left this huge gap in our hearts. We will never regret one moment in our time together. Someday sweet Ruger, we will all be together again in that Great Beyond. Until then, sleep tight my sweet love.
Our beloved Ruger passed away on April 16, 1998. We had to put him to sleep since he lost the use of his rear legs due to cerical spinal compression. He will always be in our hearts.
