Dearly missed by Cathy, Jack, Mike, Sam and Dan Munro

 

Time came to us as a foster in February 2000 and we adopted him the following May.  He had been returned because he nipped at a toddler.  He was pretty bald - he basically only had a 1" strip of hair down his back so GPI had bloodwork run on him.  He needed thyroid meds and he also had separation anxiety.  When he was dropped off at Bothell Pet Hospital for his bloodwork, he had torn up his own coat and the bedding in his run.  This poor dog was a mess - bald, had SA, had nipped a child and needed thyroid meds - just our cup of tea.  We are fortunate in that someone is usually at home so we decided we'd like to foster Time which led to our eventual adoption of him.

During his time as a foster, Time had destroyed the wood frame to our futon which we had to get rid of.  He was put on doggie Prozac which we eventually weaned him off of and then we tried melatonin which we eventually ended.  Time was secure enough in our home to not need medication ever again.

Time was a rabid ball player - he would play until he dropped, if you let him and he was very vocal.  One of the things I regret not doing is taking a video of him bark-rooing.  When he first barked at us and wouldn't stop, it was pretty scary.  I had to call his old foster home to ask them what they did.   She told me that if you simply grab his collar from underneath his chin, he melts like butter.  It was true!  He seemed relieved that someone wanted to be alpha over him as he quickly relinquished that role. He would roo to sirens or the ice cream trucks during the summer which would get the other dogs going in our home.

Time loved to cuddle - he didn't care with who - Mom, Dad, kids, the other dogs, anyone laying down on one of the couches was game to him.  We lost our cuddle bug to ostersarcoma.  He was diagnosed in July of 2007 and passed on January 3, 2008.   He was a few months shy of his 11th birthday.

Time was a small male, about 62 lbs but he was a very noticeable force in our home.  He is unbelievably missed by all of us.

Time, we love you.  Run free with Jae, Rose, Benny, Jake and Keemo.

To everything, turn, turn, turn.
There is a season, turn, turn, turn.
And a time to every purpose under heaven.
A time to be born, a time to die.
A time to plant, a time to reap.
A time to kill, a time to heal.
A time to laugh, a time to weep.

To everything, turn, turn, turn.
There is a season, turn, turn, turn.
And a time to every purpose under heaven.
A time to build up, a time to break down.
A time to dance, a time to mourn.
A time to cast away stones.
A time to gather stones together.

To everything, turn, turn, turn.
There is a season, turn, turn, turn.
And a time to every purpose under heaven.
A time of love, a time of hate.
A time of war, a time of peace.
A time you may embrace.
A time to refrain from embracing.

To everything, turn, turn, turn.
There is a season, turn, turn, turn.
And a time to every purpose under heaven.
A time to gain, a time to lose.
A time to rend, a time to sow.
A time for love, a time for hate.
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late
