Today, March 12th, 2019, Rusty went to the Rainbow Bridge.rusty
Rusty was a wonderful companion. We adopted him in May, 2009 as a companion for our beagle, Bailey. Bailey was very skittish and we thought another dog would help her. As soon as Joe saw Rusty's picture, which is attached, he knew he was the one. Rusty was the perfect fit. Calm, loyal and obedient. When we adopted Rusty, he was estimated to be 3 or 4. He was an old soul. All he wanted was food (what beagle doesn't??) and a walk. He asked for nothing more, but LOVED the lure course. He was definitely Man's best friend. He preferred people to dogs. At the dog park he greeted all of the grown-ups and would walk around with them instead of the dogs. He had the true beagle bay which gave many people chuckles when they were lucky enough to hear it.
In February, 2017, he had a SIX POUND tumor and his spleen removed. It was a rare cancer and the vet said we could expect another 6 months from him and if we were lucky, a full year, if we went ahead with the surgery. We did, of course, and were blessed with another 2 years with him.
I want to thank Midwest BREW for all that you do. You work tirelessly for the beagles. Thank you.
I want to give a special thank you to his foster mom, Mary Jane, for rescuing him. I hope she is reading this. Thank you so much for what you did. Rusty was a fantastic dog. We couldn't have asked for a better companion. He was such a good boy and will forever be missed. Thank you.
Run free Rusty Roo! I hope there is a lure course up in heaven for you. Please say hi to Carmella, Bun Bun and Chase. Until we meet again, my friend. We love you!!
