March 4, 2009
When Clyde found us, he was a puppy with a giant head and four humongous paws, hence the name, “Clydesdale.” A lapdog from the start, he never quite knew how big he was. He tried to assert himself in his teenage years, but Dakota refused to let loose of her “alpha dog” title. She made Clyde the gentle soul that he was. Clyde loved to love and be loved, to have his paws massaged, to rest his head on the chest of whoever happened to be sleeping on the couch, and to give “sugar” to everyone! His favorite snacks were grasshoppers and hackberry seeds. He was the big dog that no one feared, because he always had that friendly smile on his face. Clyde fought bravely, much stronger than his gentle disposition would have led us to believe he ever could. But he succumbed to cancer on March 4, 2009. Clyde and Dakota were together for ten years. She preceded him in death and they are now together again. Together they enjoyed life, especially playing with skunks! Dakota and Clyde left behind Rookie, who seems confused about his role as the only “child” in the house. He misses them both, as do we, but we know they are happy together, as there most definitely are skunks at the Rainbow Bridge!
