I'm sad to write that our beloved Tatum passed away last Wednesday morning.
He was perfectly fine the day before.....I gave him a bath, he laid on the deck in the sun for hours, drank out of the spigot outside (which he loves) and he went to bed with us like he always does. I brought up his blanket (I had just washed it) and he fluffed it into a bed, I scratched his butt and he put his paws up on the bed for Jacob to pet him and we said goodnight. He was all comfy this morning on his blanket, so I thought. He left us sometime in the night without a sound in his sleep. It is fitting that even in his final moment he did not think to trouble us or even wake us up.
We are so happy Madeleine knew you and that we captured this image
Tatum-you were the best dog we will ever have. Thank you for all that you taught us and for being our first baby. We loved traveling with you and we know you loved being in the car. We miss you so much. The house just isn't the same with out you snoring and farting in the next room. You will be forever in our hearts and minds.
Everybody who knew Tatum, loved him.
We love you more than you will ever know. We can't wait to see you again one day.
