In Loving Memory of Coach

Image 39Such sad news. I just found out today that one of the dogs close to my heart, Coach, has passed away. He was one of Sam’s best friends and could always bring a smile to anyone’s face. He was battling many health problems and it was a tough fight, but he was always happy and still loved to play ball until the very end. I am so sad to hear of his passing, and I know that nothing I can say will ease the pain that his family is feeling right now, but Coach was a special guy and he will be sorely missed. Not only will Sam miss him, but the neighborhood pack will miss him, and I will too.

Coach was a big character. As you already know he was the biggest fan of fetch. If his mom let him, he would play ball from morning until night, and he was good at it too. He also had a crazy love of carpet. That sounds like a weird thing, but it was totally cute. When he would come over to our house he would roll around on the carpet like a puppy and rub his face in it, he just couldn’t get enough of it. Coach loved swimming too. He would swim and swim, and if you combined swimming with a ball? Man, he was in heaven.

Coach is up in the sky now, playing ball for as long as he wants, and eating all the steak he can handle. I know he is happy now. He had a long and happy life with a wonderful family who loved him dearly. I have honestly never seen such a genuinely happy dog. There will be an empty spot on the pack walks, and we will all hold you in our hearts. We will miss you, Coach! Please send good thoughts and energy to Coach’s family to help them through this hard time.
