Marilynx Posted January 24, 2022 Share Posted January 24, 2022 Regulars here know how much Barn Hunt, and my longhaired Dachshund, Harper, mean to me. On New Year's Eve, I lost my Heart and my Soul to an evil disease called Hemangiosarcoma, a blood cancer. We had no clue he was ill. We went out to a Barn Hunt in the morning. He had a good run. We had lunch together, and took a long walk around the Farm. We went in to do his second run, and while we were waiting, I realized something was wrong. I pulled him from his run, and called his vet. She had some suggestions, but by the time we reached our RV, Harper could not stand. I put him back in the car and took him to an emergency vet. Due to Covid, we weren’t allowed to be with him. I handed my poor, frightened, little Boy over to strangers, who took him away – and then called me three hours later to tell me he was dead. My Harper died alone, in a strange place, surrounded by strangers, without so much as a last touch to his sweet head to tell him that if he needed to go, it was okay. So now I need to do the only thing I can for him -- a memorial picture. Harper was the first Standard Dachshund in the US and Canada to achieve the RATCHX, RATCHX2, RATCHX3, and RATCHX4. I'm trying to figure out the most effective way of adding "In Memory of" along with his birth date and death date. If I could figure out how to add the fact that he was first in so many titles, it would be good. This will be going on a largish (8" x 10") magnet for my car, and on t-shirts for Harry and me. There will be a successor. But not just yet. Harper's great-great-nephew may well come to us. But that is a different story. Here's the last title piece I did for him: 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
