Timon

On Friday evening my husband had the sad task to go find our faithful companion Timon and bring his body home to be buried in our pet cemetery.  Timon was a Lab/German Shepard/Malamute Cross.  When Timon came to us he was a rambunctious puppy that got into anything and everything he could.  Chewed the Saddle Bags off my my husbands snowmobile and the Bra off our friends car (to his defense it was ripped, hanging down a bit and very inviting).

He grew into a wonderful companion to our 3 children and to my husband and I. He was a gentle dog unless he felt that his family was in danger.  He was also very protective of children.  I remember one time my cousin was teaching her niece how to ride her 2-wheel bike and she wiped out in front of our house and of course the little girl started to cry....well Timon instantly went into protection mode.  When my cousin and her niece walked up to see us Timon wouldn't let my cousin anywhere near me or even toward her niece.  He protected us so well the he even ran a black bear out of our yard one night.  My husband was very surprised when the bear dropped back down on all 4's and ran off into the bush.

Timon just walked away to die...he was 92 years old in human years....he would have been 12 yrs old at the end of October.  Timon was very much a part of our family and will be missed by all of us.

Sending heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your beloved Timon. In the last three years I have lost 2 of my "babies" They were both 16. Being the animal lover that I am I understand what you are going through. They become such a part of your family.
