Goodbye Skip

 We said goodbye to our wonderful dog Skip on April 26th.
 Skip was found as a stray running the streets of Salt Lake City by one of Dewey's friends. Dewey promptly rescued him and they were each others constant companion for 14 years. Skip was without a simply the best dad ever. He listened and would "heel" and "sit". He never dreamed of leaving the yard. He knew "his jobs" were to help feed the horses and chickens in the morning and at night. He would let you know us know if we were running late for either one.
 He was a calming influence and very best friend to Bailey and then Zoey. Neither one of them were ever very far from Skips side. When he could no longer jump on our bed he started sleeping on the end of Kolbys bed. Kolby LOVED this and looked at Skip as his own protector.
 Whenever the boys were outside playing Skip was never far, snow or sun it didn't matter. He would spend hours during the summer happily"herding" flies. He was a once in a lifetime dog.
We were blessed to be able to have Skip in our lives for as long as we did. He will live forever in our hearts.
