He passed to the Rainbow Bridge early Monday morning, he is there with his old buddy Macho. That is Simon (below left) in his younger days, around age seven. Macho and Simon lived with us in town, we lost Macho just before moving to the Whetstone area. Simon was my saddest project, rescued seven years ago. He came to us very thin, shaved to a nub, covered in tic bites. Both ears were sorely infected, he was anemic and had an awful toenail fungus. Several vet visits and time erased the look and symptoms of abuse.
After Macho was gone Simon was Chelsea's babysitter and company. Chelsea was a handful for Simon, he did not want puppy play.
Recently the "two old guys" claimed beds nearest our sofa. They were mostly always there....
Simon had a long life and we hope the last half was his best and happiest with us. Fourteen years was a good run.
Farewell to our one-eyed handsome "Pirate Poodle".
