In Honor of Klaus, Lulu and Bogart...

Scruffy here with Lacie and Babystan by my side. What does one say when one has no words? Bogie's dad and Lulu's husband, Klaus left us today. We are heartbroken.
We know that Klaus loved to walk his Bogie in Oregon woods like these...feeling the sun on his back and the love of the big Dale at his side.

We picture his Joy when he looked at this little scrap of a puppers for the first time...yes...that's Bogart...from one of the earliest pix on his blog way back in 2005.


We KNOW of his joy when he was spendin' time with Lulu and Bogie in the urban settin' of LA or the woods of Oregon. And we know of their joy at spendin' time with him.



WHY? Dare we question why this had to happen, in spite of our love and prayers? Of course we dare; it's natural to want to know the answer to questions without answers. Right now there are no answers or words. Right now there's just a lot of pain.
But we leave you with the above photo...one in which soon will be seen in yards and gardens all over as Spring comes. In spite of the cold and sadness we feel at this moment...
There is Hope.
Lulu and Bogart, we love you and will keep both you and Klaus tucked in our hearts.....
And for the rest of this community who has supported them so in the past few weeks.
We love you so much.....
With bowed heads,
Scruffy, Lacie and Babystan

Thank you for saying so beautifully what is difficult for most of us to say.I burst out crying when I read that Klaus had passed & my Patrick's eyes teared up. We have been blessed to be touched by such gentle people, even if it is in the blogessphere, and not in person. We have been touched all the same. Love never fails. Thank you for your voice too. love from Cassie,Patrick, BabyRocketDog & Hootie

A beautiful reflection. We too chose an image of a spring flower in the snow—when the world seems cold and foreboding, there is always hope, there is always beauty, there is always joy.

Klaus embraced life fully, savored each moment with his soulmate Lulu, knew the devotion of a good dog and gentle cats. He made his life a celebration of love.

We should all be so fortunate. Love, love, love. Every second, every day.

Jane, Petey and Mica

I have to admit I don't always understand what's going on in your blog - it's usually over my poor Golden Retriever head - but I understand this, and I'm glad I came to Scruffy, Stan, and Lacie's Place tonight. Thank you for your beautiful words.

Your sad pal,
Joey

Beautiful words. So sad when we learned not quite an hour ago.
Crying over someone you only know in a blog. Amazing. Love can stretch very far I guess.
We will hold Lulu and Bogie in our hearts. Klaus is in such a great place now(that is what I believe anyway).
*sigh*
Hugs to all of you guys
we love you too.

Deetz said...

I just found out.
I am lost with words and my faith is shattered. I will hold on to hope. My eyes are filled with tears for Bogart's family and the pain we all feel for their loss.

While it should not be surprising - it truly was amazing how the DWB community came together to support Bogart, Lulu and Klaus over the last few weeks. Unfortunately, love is sometimes not enough. As you say we can be comforted in knowing that there is hope; hope of spring, hope that someday the agonizing sorrow that Lulu is feeling will subside into laughter and happy tears of her soulmate.

Until then we have hope.
love you all.
