Thank you Rupert, not only for the memories - and there were many many many of them….
Sprayed by skunks on more than one occasion, encounters with the deer at our fence, miles upon miles of runs and hikes. Putting Owen, Tessa and Finn to bed. The best security blanket ever. Our place to dispose of countless pizza crusts.
Alway always always being there to greet me when I came home with the same happy puppy enthusiasm from day one to the last.
But more than memories - thank you Rupert for teaching us responsibility and prepping us for parenthood.... Learning that some thing is dependent on us and more important than us, and while it sucked to skip after work surf sessions, yoga or happy hours - the love and joy you showed was worth it. Teaching us not give to up and throw in the towel when things were tough in the beginning - eating coffee tables (two of them) chewing through a door, devouring down pillows, tormenting the cat, and for your less than tolerant attitude towards small white fluffy things - except for bunnies because for some reason you never minded bunnies.
Thank you for 12 years of joy, love and warmth that you brought to the family.
You will forever be missed and loved.
Here are a few early videos of Rup that we love.
