Farewell Friend

It is with heavy heart I have to tell you of a great Wire Fox Terrier's passing. Nigel Precott -"American-born statesdog, philosopher, adventurer, essayist, barrister, mixologist, canine behaviorist, pioneering dog blogger and ball player (he sometimes went by "Shoeless Nige") died Saturday, April 28, 2007 in his doggie dad's arms at a veterinary clinic in Palm Harbor, Florida.
He died of complications from living an extremely long and happy life.
He was somewhere between 15-and-a-half or 17.
Nigel was timeless, but he was not ageless." Please visit Nigel's amazing blog to read about this boy. Wow. It left me speechless and that's saying something for a WFT.
Nigel's blog will now be penned by his little sis, Gimlet who is also a writer extraordinaire.
Rest in peace dear friend. Here's to an amazing life.

Mom and Dad cried when they read that great tribute.
Mom also just watched the video of Finn jumping into his dad's arms and laughed till she cried. I think she watched it 12 times at least. Does he always do that, or is it something you trained him to do? What fun!

I didn't know Nigel, but he's clearly a very distinguished and accomplished Wire Haired Terrier. xxx Asta
