Tribute to Ray's Buddie, Ernie

Ernie fought his last battle with one of those damn copperheads. I'm sure that Ray and sis, Sue, miss him.

    Oh... gosh, I feel bad for them. Losing a beloved pet is always hard.

    Thank you for the picture. It will take a long time to get over this loss. When you saw Ray Ernie was near him. He always napped when Ray sat down for a snooze. I keep looking around for him.

    Good ol' Ernie Boy! I feel like I've lost a cousin or old friend. I have some great childhood memories about Ernster. Manda and I had many adventures with all of those dogs. My favorite memories of Ernie are the cookies he left under my pillow, taking afternoon naps, tug of war, the orange hue he always had from his many tomato soup baths, and watching Uncle Ricky pretend to pick ticks off of him. I hate that Grandma and Grandpa will be without him. I know they loved him so much.

  4. Ahhhhh damn!!! I loved Ernie. My heart goes out to them!!!

  5. He was killed by a copperhead? Dang, I do not like snakes.
