I'm a handsome old man that my mom's cousin found when I was just 2 years old, wandering down the street. I used to be a gorgeous black and tan but I've faded to a soft grey and white over time. I'm still the Alpha and like to whup up on Bogey!
Growing up, I was always a tough guy. Nothing could faze me. As I've aged, I've continued to be tough. This last month though, all that has caught up with me. I thought going blind was bad enough, but Alzheimers?! I don't know if I'm coming or going!! This all happened pretty fast, so mom and dad suspect a brain tumor or something similar going on in my head. I've had a good long life, but it's time to cross the Rainbow Bridge and be with those who have gone before me, who still live in the hearts of those that love them. I will miss all my dear friends from CAH, but I am grateful to have known you all. Stay strong and stay healthy. I love you all very, very much. Especially Maggie:) XOXO

Pearl Jam has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was 19 1/2 years old and had been with me for 17 1/2 of those years. I am truly blessed to have been his momma. He has been my joy and my life all these years. A part of me crossed the bridge with him, but a greater part of me knows that my heart must continue to stay here, for the sake of my other kids. I don't know if they realize he's gone, or if they even care, as he didn't like any of them:) But I know, and I care, and I will always remember him and honor him. He changed my life and the way I look at animals. Before Pearl Jam, I thought you bought dogs from pet stores. Because of rescuing him, I learned about rescue groups and animal shelters. I am a rescue girl for life. They make the best pets as they are truly grateful for love and a home. Always think adoption first, as it is the most amazing feeling to take a dog off the streets and give them a home. Much love,
Sunni and Pearl Jam
