Saturday Special


One year ago today, our beloved Phantom crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.



We miss you terribly, buddy.  Strange as it may seem, it seems like you were here just yesterday, and at the same time, it seems like you have been gone forever.  

Today we would like to remember our special boy with some photos from the past.



Puppy Phantom with Angel Dakota






Can someone please open the garage door so we can go off on an adventure?


From one of our first days in Kansas after leaving Connecticut.



Phantom was always wonderful with all the grandbipeds.  Here he is with his special princess K. 




Our Honeybun Boy



Hi Mom.




Sunpuddles were a big hit.



Cookie, please? 

  

Can I please come in?



He always loved to go for a walk.



Fun with friends.


And let's not forget his donkey pals.




Never afraid, always gentle.


Welcoming Thunder Dunder.



You can't catch me, Thunder.

And then along came Ciara.



 Lightning joins the pack.



 So happy together . . .



He loved riding in the car.








And oh THOSE eyes!!!







November 20, 1998 - April 2, 2015

Wish you could have stayed a bit longer, Phantom - hugs from all of us.

Woos - Ciara, Lightning, and Mom

I'm wiping away tears as I type this. I don't want to say I have a favorite because all your dogs are so wonderful, but Mr. Phantom, he was just very, very special. I loved seeing all these pictures of him. I miss him. I wish he could have stayed longer too. Thanks for giving him, and all your dogs, such fantastic lives.

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

He was such a handsome boy. Looks like he had a wonderful life! I am laughing because the pizza picture made me think, true dog owners capture the "badness" before correcting it. Thank you for sharing your memories of him today.

Millie and Walter said...

Thanks for taking us on a trip down memory lane. Phantom sure was a beautiful boy.

Ruby said...

We of course are "new friends" and didn't know your beloved Phantom.I wish I could have had the chance to know him, but your post has made me feel like I did. What a special (and very handsome!!) boy that I know is dearly missed, and I know is not that far away, because he's truly living in your heart and the memories of everyone who knew him.

Such a beautiful tribute to such a beautiful boy. I sure do miss seeing his beautiful photos, and yes, those amazing eyes! I know exactly what you mean about the time thing - seems like just yesterday, yet it was not. And sweet Thunder, so good to see the gang together again...oh, how I miss our angels. Please give Gibson a nose nudge for me, dear Phantom, and maybe show him around? Thank you for sharing Phantom with us...sending you all big Husky hugs. xo

Smiles and a great big lump in my throat at the same time. I know how it seems like a day and it also seems like forever. His eyes were truly a window into his gentle and loving soul. Hugs to all of you. I know how you miss him.

Oh sweet Phantom. Your words at the beginning of the post gave me shivers. I agree with those that say there are many dogs we all know and we love them all, but Phantom is one that really brings out the emotion in all of us. He was such a special soul and you must have captured him so well. We will always be grateful you shared him with us - it was him that I joined Blogville for and I'll always have him to thank for that!
