To the kind staff of VCA,

Craig, Maddie and I want to thank you for your attention and loving care of our precious Triton. Indeed, he was a very special boy. He gave our family joy and was always the life of the party. Triton taught our family very important life lessons; to live life to its fullest; get off your duff and enjoy the outdoors; and gobble up each moment as it might be your last. Even when he was suffering he offered a sweet attitude and trust.

You see, before we adopted him our Triton was a show dog and stud, most of his days were spent preparing for the show ring, time in his kennel or in a yard by himself. His breeder gave him as much attention and love as she could but it became clear to her it wasn't enough, we found him quite by mistake but it was meant to be.

I remember his first day at our farm; he was like a child in a toy store. He always made us laugh, when he played he played with all his heart and when he loved it was with his soul. Some say dogs don't have souls; well � I don't think those people know dogs as we do. I will never fill the void of his cuddles and kisses. Each evening he would hop in my lap and say thank you and I love you. My heart would almost burst with such love.

I am thankful for each day I had with my boy. While I am challenged with why he was taken from us, I will not be tormented with regret. We enjoyed every minute we had with him and he with us.

I want to thank you for many reasons. Your staff showed him loving kindness, patience and extended that compassion to our family. I know my boy is in peace and running with his ball in the fields of heaven. I just hope the angels can keep up! Peace be with you and yours.

Sincerest thanks,
Doreen Heal
