2013, Day 280 - Memories

This is Frankie's uncle Bados.  Sadly, over the weekend he passed unexpectedly.  He was running in a field and, against all odds, struck post that he didn't see.  The vet's office was only a mile away but he didn't make it that far.  Bados was one heck of a dog, not only was he an amazing companion to a dear friend but he was one of the top rated racers in the country and on top of that his beautiful conformation won him many awards in the show ring.  At just four years old he was taken too soon but his memory will live on in his siblings (all thirteen of his littermates), his nieces and nephews, and his offspring but mostly he will live on in the memory of the countless people whose lives he touched.
