Aca, Our Gentle Giant
One of his favorite
foods was cooked carrots. Not raw, he wouldn't touch them raw. We think they
were like candy to him. In his younger days he didn't mind getting dressed up
by Bailey and Lindsey. They would put a t-shirt on him and sunglasses which he
just "went along with." And at Christmas his Aunt Theresa
always had gifts for him. When she would come to town for a visit, he loved
going for walks alone with her too.
Close to 3 years ago, Ace was at the vet for a check-up when we met a women whom brought in an injured GS mix puppy. She could not afford the bill and asked me if I would like to have this hurt pup. Ace didn't seem to mind. So we brought her home, where she would be his little sidekick (see picture at right) till the day he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. So mellow, he put up with her baby year and then moving on into teen-hood. He did however let her know when she went too far with her pranking. She is missing him greatly as she lost her best friend. Just like we did.
We know Ace is up there in Heaven eating all the cooked carrots he wants and being the same Gentle Giant he was here. We Love and miss you Ace! Thanks for giving us all of the love and loyalty any family could ask for!
Ted, Nick, Lindsey, and Bailey
Aca was such an amazing animal. He and I were so close before my back surgeries. I took him with me everywhere--come home from middle school then get my boy then go
hang out with all my friends. He was so much more than a animal to me--he touched my heart and I loved him with all of my heart. He will always
occupy a big piece of my heart. I think of him daily, I miss him dearly. I have so many great memories
of Aca. He will never be forgotten, that's for sure. He has touched so many of my friends and family's hearts and will be in their hearts forever as the
I remember when we brought home our other dog (Wasake) when she was a puppy-- how Aca reacted was something I'll never forget!! He was like "What is that little thing making noise?!" It was the cutest bond I've ever seen. He was a great mentor for her and taught her well.
I honestly love Aca more than anything in this world and forever he will be a part of me. I will miss him everyday but now he is in a better place where he isn't in pain. I love you so much Aca! Rest in Peace, bo bo. I love you.
