Tex, Rhett

We lost our beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback, Tex, on December 20, 2008 when he was hit by a car.We had Tex for 4 1/2 wonderful years and he was a member of our family.
Our sweet Texy was just the most beautiful, most precious dog. He was a free spirit, as stubborn as a mule and did whatever he wanted, when he wanted to…and we loved him for it! He was as big as a horse, it seemed, but loved to sleep in comfortable beds with lots of blankets and pillows. He took up the entire bed too!
He loved to make sure he got everything (kisses, treats, couch space, etc) before his brother Rhett (a labradoodle). He also loved to sit like a cat on the bay window. Texy also loved to chase squirrels with his best friend, Rhett. What a pair these two were! And you always knew he wanted affection when he would lean his hind quarters on you. Words cannot express what a wonderful, unique creature he was.
Losing Tex has been just devastating and so very painful. When we lost Tex, I read “Rescuing Sprite” because it helped to know that there are other people who love their dogs and grieve for them when they go.
Mr. Levin, thank you for sharing your story with other dog lovers.
Even though losing our baby Tex has been shattering, I thank God that he created Tex and allowed us to have so many wonderful times with him. And now Texy is with Him.
