Mikatura's Toocun Yoodul
"Tooke"

March 29th - August 2nd, 2002

My sweet darling Angel passed away this morning of complications associated with Parvovirus that he contacted just before he got his second set of puppy shots.  Unfortunately I think I picked up the virus on my shoes at a rodeo and brought it home.  Tooke fought for six weeks to overcome this horrible disease but this morning we had to help him let go and go on to a better place.  Please, if you have puppies, be extra extra careful about them...I thought I was, but one time of forgetting to change shoes and my little man paid the price.  I am leaving this page the way it has been since Tooke was born so those of you interested can see our beautiful angel. Also I've added a poem I wrote but it's very sad so you might want to grab a kleenex if you're soft hearted.


Five weeks of age

Mikatura's Tookun Yoodul - March 29 - August 2, 2002

Coyotes howled and cattle called;
during the day, snow started to fall
Our Tooke is gone, he lost his fight,
though he tried with all his might

Beautiful eyes in a tiny face,
no one can ever fill the space
Left in our hearts by the sweet wee man,
who left us here for a better land 

Taken away by a dread disease,
his sad suffering we had to ease
He gave his all to stay alive,
but only his memory will survive 

Rest easy sweet boy, in your place in the sun;
pain free and safe you now can run
With Aussie Angels who’ve gone before,
and waited for you with an open door 

We miss you all, our companions and friends;
we’ve holes in our hearts that will not mend
We’ll meet you there, when our souls fly free;
then never again will we part for all eternity.

Tooke at eight weeks, attacking a toy and playing with his sister, Chyne

Tooke's name means "sun heart" and this little fella is so gentle, sweet & sunny that it's a great fit!  At 6 weeks of age he was not the least bit afraid of even our biggest ewe and sneaked through the fence to visit the sheep if we didn't watch him closely!

Four weeks old...playing in the spring sunshine!
