Saying Goodbye

Please direct your kind thoughts to my dear sister Kate.  She’s had to say goodbye to her little furry best friend of 11 1/2 years.

Little Mr. Basil Stag Hare, so named for one of her favorite Redwall characters, passed earlier this evening in the presence of Kate, Meg and Peter.  He had a good life, full of love, lots of squirrels to chase, and lived in three different countries. (quite impressive for your average dachshund)  He was affectionately referred to at “worm dog” and “speed bump”.  And was always up for snuggling up with you when you were sick or cold.

Basil: you will be missed.

Kate: my heart goes out to you.
I love you, can call me if you need anything.
