Nipper passed over on October 30,2006 at 3:20 in the afternoon.
He had a large mass on his spleen that had ruptured and he was bleeding internally, and there were other medical conditions that made him a very poor surgical candidate.
He left this world very peacefully, being held in the arms of his Daddy and Mommy, surrounded by great love.
He is deeply and profoundly missed.
The experience of knowing Nipper and having shared the past 12 years of my life with him, his capacity to both love so completely and to accept love the same way makes this pain of loosing him pale in comparason to All The Good we've shared through the years .
It is my Great Hope for everyone reading this page that you all get to experience such a relationship in your life, for then you will know what it means to be truely alive.
Chamois misses her mate, but is accepting his passing with grace and dignity.
