8) Rascal was a very sweet senior citizen. He was almost completely deaf, but extremely good natured and alert. He loved to snuggle and be petted and got along with everybody, including other dogs.
Regrettably, before we were able to find a permanent home for Rascal, it became apparent that his seeming good health was not going to last, so we put him into our hospice care program. When his organs began to fail in mid-2005, we decided that we had to let him go. He was helped along to the Rainbow Bridge being held in our loving arms.
