Picture Explosion

Spoetzl

Our super-sweet Spoetzl was euthanized this afternoon, passing away peacefully, after his quality of life took a sudden, unexpected down-turn Saturday evening.

Named after Kosmos Spoetzl, who founded the Shiner Brewery, we adopted Spoetzl from the Boulder County SPCA when he was about six months old and just a couple of months after we moved there in 1994.  Prior to this, Spoetzl had been hit by a car, damaging his hips.  Up until the last couple of years, he was able to lead an extremely active life.

Spoetzl was incredibly loyal, affectionate, and loving.  He even loved to groom Chiquita, our cat.  I’d be lying if I said this was easy.  He was especially loyal to Monica, whom he followed around the house like a lost puppy up until the end.  Monica was with him when he passed.

I don’t normally ask such things, but the next time you see a contribution to a pet shelter set up, throw a couple of bucks in there for Spoetzl.

Our best thoughts,
The Muellers

Spoetzl

I know I still owe some pictorials. I’ll get those posted ASAP.

Unfortunately, something else is distracting me at the moment. Spoetzl has very suddenly taken a drastic turn for the worse. He’s almost completely unable to move, and he’s not eating at all. I’m not hopeful.

We’ll post an update here later.

Coming soon…

I have been putting together a ton of pictorials to post, catching up all the way back to October.  And, especially since we got the new camera, there’s a lot on the way.  I hope to do this in the next few days, so stay stuned!
