was NOT a liar.
If you love a dog with all your heart and treat him well, he will be your forever companion and unconditional best friend.
Rudy was that, and we all LOVED him with our whole hearts.
Sure, over the years, Rudy and I had our battles.
He would make a giant hole in my flower bed (s)...
He would greet us in the driveway, EVERYTIME we came home.
It didn't matter if it was Brent or myself, or the kids coming home on the bus.
so much. More than I thought I would.
He gave us so much love, and I can only hope he knew how much we loved him.
Every morning, any season, as I left for work, I would roll my window down and tell him I loved him, and I would see him later. He would be sitting in the wicker chair on the porch, just keeping watch over the place till an amish buggy went by, or a red car drove by (he HATED the color red for some reason.)
He was the best dog we've ever had, and we will forever compare all others to him.
Goodbye dear friend. We miss you so.
