Honoring our beloved Marcus ~

Shomberg's Private Label

And just like that ......he left as he lived; without asking for anything more than to be held and loved. Never titled but he encompassed everything you envision a champion to be. He was our sweet, gentle boy who likely deserved far more than he had in his lifetime. His life revolved around his Lily and she will miss him dearly. They grew up together and they were inseparable. I'm not sure she will understand but I will tell her just the same. The words won't matter as much as his touch which she'll come to miss as she watches for him. Dogs grieve and surely she will after 13 years of being together, chasing rabbits, playing with your big tire, eating and sleeping together. You were like an old married couple who depended on each other every single hour in a day.

Sometimes we are blessed to bring puppies into this world who will accomplish noteworthy titles; those who represent the breed in special ways.
And then there are those puppies who grow up to bless and enrich your life in the most simple of ways. They connect you to your humanness and give you more in love and devotion than words could ever express.

Our hope has been that we would know the time; that we would be able to give him his dignity in a peaceful travel back to the generous God who shared him with us for these years that have passed all too fast.
As a dear friend noted, it was our part of the unwritten contract. We have honored it though it has broken our hearts so deeply.

Rest well, sweet boy, for you have earned your heaven. Your tasks here are done.
Our final prayer upon your leaving is that we might be blessed to see you again one day. You are so loved and you will be missed every day of our journey back to where you are. Watch for us for we'll be coming to meet you once again.
