In Loving Memory of
Good Night, Sweet Patches
“Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. ”
Patches was a prince, a noble heart that none could match. He was a puppy out of Stark County Pound; a lovely happy go lucky boy who we thought might have some husky or wolfhound and looked like the Winn Dixie movie dog, a Bergert Picard.
He was loyal and loving and when my son’s family took him to foster they could not let him go when finally a good application was sent to them. They decided to adopt him and he gave them 13 ½ years of love, loyalty and happiness.
His howl sounded like a husky. In fact we had trained him to sing with us. My favorite was Mr. Sandman and we would sing “Mr. Sandman” and he would sing “Woo, woo, woo, woo”. He won a talent contest with that trick once.
He had the need to run and loved his big back yard and his regular walks. He loved his brothers Ozzie, Barney and sister Suzie and his human brothers and human dad. Tommy always said Patches was his dog. Tommy, age 10, will miss him dearly.
Patches got diabetes at age 7 and his human dad gave him shots of insulin twice daily and checked his sugar. Patches was worth it. He became blind at the end but knew his home well and maneuvered it with grace. His hearing may have failed a little but he always knew his name. Patches handled his shots and his feedings and did well, savoring life because that is what it was all about. Patches let go of
that life on 1/7/2014. Good night, sweet prince.
