Norton left us Tuesday to go to Dog Heaven. For those who did not know him, he did live quite a full life for 14 years. He always managed to find his way into an adventure. From his days of fence hoping when he was a puppy in Commack, to his last few years of not being able to walk very well. He always gave us a great story to tell about something he did.
He never met anyone who did not like him. I don't know exactly what it was in him, but people were always drawn to him. Maybe it was the bent tail he had from the first day Stacey rescued him at the shelter, or his big brown eyes. I'm not sure but he had something special in him.
He has met many people over the years from all the trips that he decided to take on his own. And all the people who have knocked on our door saying "is this your dog?", or the times we had to pick him up at a neighbors house. Everyone always loved him.
We'll miss you Norton!
Here are a couple of photos I had of Norton. If you have some photos of him, please upload a few on that page. Or post a comment below about him.
This was the last photo I took of him on Memorial Day weekend.
Keith, Nice job, very thoughtful. You did a very good tribute to Norton for the whole family.
Thank you for that. God teaches us all a lot about ourselves through our pets.
God Bless you, Suzanne, Isabelle and Samantha, and Lilly too,
