    You may recall that Cappy had a favorite Oak stump and we decided that it would be a fitting spot to place a memorial statue in his honor. A friend saw a 2/3 sized Lab statue and had it shipped to us. It arrived today. When Rusty first saw it he bristled, growled and walked stiff-legged around it a few times before he decided that it was ok.

    Rusty and Remi on Cappy's stump ...



    The Statue ...



    As Remi and Rusty posed with it ...



    The pic and wording making up the sign that will be laminated onto a plaque and attached to the base of the statue.

    Remi and Rusty aren't my whole life. They're trying to fill the hole in my heart left by Cappy's passing.

    Jim,
    I am so sorry. I have been busy and missing coming on this sight. I will have to read the posts and see what happened. That is so terribly hard to let a friend go. Take care of yourself and the boys.

    I really can't say anything. What a wonderful relationship the two of you had.

    The statue will never replace Cappy, But, It will be a reminder of that special stump meant to Him. Just ad to it, all the other Loves of Cappy's. A duck, a frisbee, whatever meant the most to him. This will make You and Carol smile whenever you see it. Cap will always Be By Your Side.

    Hugs
