Reese 4/23/00 to 4/21/09

Today there is another angel dog in Dog Heaven.
Yesterday we lost our sweet Reese to cancer.
He was a much loved member of our family.

Even though Reese loved JP the best, he was my baby too. Reese was always there to lay beside me when I was on bed rest with Tink. He was my protector when JP was out of town on hunting trips or working. Reese loved on Tink as she learned to crawl and then walk and later let her dress him up in her jewelry and crowns so they could be princesses together. He laid by my feet for weeks as we mourned the loss of our sweet Noah together. He was ever patient when Bo pounced on him with all the playfulness of a young dog, even though he was old and sick.
We love you Reese! You will always be our first baby.
