Remembering Caleb

My mom was inspired by Big Pupi's photo tribute and decided to take the blog today to tell you about Caleb.

Here's a picture of Caleb as a tiny, 10lb. puppy on the day he came home with us. He slept in my lap on the drive home.

He was the runt of the litter but as you can see he had big paws.caleb-puppy1

He grew into a very handsome, very large Labrador.

He had a knack for finding the comfiest places to rest.

He was an excellent gardener and always added his touch to my mom's gardens.

He was a little bit spoiled.
Where are the rest of my presents?

He also had to put up with an annoying little sister, Phoebe. But he really loved her, even though she was a pest.

He also loved his pool.

As he got older, he developed arthritis and it was hard for him to move around too much, so he spent a lot of time relaxing on the futon in the study. My dad would get up early to watch TV with him. Caleb was a big fan of Law & Order and Crossing Jordan.

Caleb went to the Rainbow Bridge peacefully at home, on December 30th, 2006. He was 14.
