Parker, my handsome fellow, my excellent companion,
Mystic and I miss you so. We met Parker in training class when he was
six months old. Five months and two owner later, Parker came to live
with us. Parker had congenital hip and elbow dysplasia. We walked
daily to keep his muscles and his joints in alignment. It also helped
me. Parker saved me from snake bite and from a car load of miscreants.
Parker loved everybody. He was so eager to please. He suffered
constant joint pain, snake bite, thunderstorms, vacuum cleaners. All
loud noises terrified him. Mystic, Roger, William and I adored you.
You were a regal creature. These few words cannot convey my depth of
love for you always. Parker, thank you for sharing your life with us.
