SPECIAL UPDATE- Chad is gone.
Aug 27, 2010
Hello Family and Friends,
This is one of the hardest updates I have had to make.
Last Sunday night we said good by to our long time family pet and companion Chad. We have had Chad for 10 years. To make a long story short...Chad was attacked by a predator of some type that killed him very quickly in our front yard.
We had let Chad out to do his thing around 11 PM. He was on his very short leash that we staked down in the front yard. We took our eyes off him for about 5 mins and that was enough time for this thing to kill Chad.
Chris and I are very devastated over the loss of such a sweet and gentle animal as Chad. He will be missed for years to come. We buried him down in the woods where our other family pet for many years (Moki) is buried.
Chad loved people and especially our grand kids and kids. Chad loved to travel and was an excellent camper. Those of you that have kept up with our travels know that already. Wherever we were there was Chad soaking up the fun and travel.
Thanks to all that have sent us their sympathies and condolences...we appreciate each and everyone of you. Our plan now is to wait a couple more weeks and then begin the search for another little creature to share our lives with. Chris seems to be looking for a puppy so she can train it up from the get go.
We will be heading down to Cordele, Ga. for the month of October so, we will have to make our minds up rather quickly. Let us know how you feel about your family pet and how you coped when you lost one of them. Your input is welcomed and needed.
In the meantime our adventure continues in my Dad's memory.......
RIP little Chad!!!
Archie and Chris
