Woody Snook - We Love You
This is a letter to celebrate the life of my beautiful friend Woody.
On July 27th 1997 I received one of the most important gifts of my life; this day also happened to be my birthday. When I look back I realize this gift came from a very unlikely source, though through this amazing gift I found my path to personal growth, success and forgiveness. This gift was Woody my Jack Russell, my muse and one of the biggest loves of my life.
Our journey together began with many struggles and lots of ups and downs. Through it all he has always been by my side helping guide me to my destiny, find my passion, make a living but most of all find self worth - I will be forever thankful to him.
Woody had an amazing life full of love, friends, good food, great veterinary care, big yards, unlimited sweet potato treats and the best dad in the world who loved him as much as I did.
Woody was diagnosed at 9 years old with a very serious heart condition. Through the years we've had many scares but his will to live has always kept his little ticker going. He never ceased to amaze us all, especially his veterinarians. Woody lived 5058 days which made him 16 years 7 months and 4 days old. His tough little heart held out till the end but his little soul container was so tired he was ready to move on.
Woody will be greeted by his two friends who passed before him Maggie and Ginger Snook. They were friends for over 14 years and I'm sure they must have missed each other.
I am posting this very personal message not only to thank Woody but to thank all of you fellow animal lovers - your compassion, love and continued support of us and our business is humbling. I feel so blessed on this very sad day I know I will miss my baby boy more than I can even imagine at this time but my heart is still so thankful.
RIP WOODY SNOOK aka baby boy - my life will not be the same without you. Thank you for everything you've given me.
WE LOVE YOU.
