Title: Another Lost Buddy
Post by: wzl46 on May 11, 2011, 12:28:43 AM
Today, because of health issues over the last couple months, I had to take Soileau's Kei Gogi Wetzel to the vet for the last time.  She was with me for my first brew session in 1998, but unfortunately, she won't be with me for any more. 
She was the typical pit bull- strong, smart, loyal, friendly to people and dogs, and the best foot warmer in bed during the winter months.

Please raise a pint in her honor as I already have tonight.  Thanks.
Paul Wetzel

Dammit, Paul. I'm so sorry.  Me and the gang are about to go for a walk, but when we get back, we'll all have a sip (me more than that) in Soileau's Kei Gogi Wetzel's honour.  My condolences. :'(

RIP old girl, see you on the other side.

I will raise a pint in Soileau's Kei Gogi Wetzel's honor. Sorry to hear about your loss. It's an extremely difficult thing to do but in many cases is "the best option". I'd much rather opt for it as opposed to prolonged pain and suffering.

sorry to hear this.  I raised my tumbler of bourbon to Soileau's Kei Gogi Wetzel and the memories she leaves behind.  Rest easy sweet girl, I am sure you were very loved.  Paul, it's gonna be a tough week bud but try to keep your chin up, she doesn't want you to be sad.

Sorry to hear about this Paul. I agree with what Will Rogers said. Damn shame they only last so long.

Raising a pint of tangerine dream to her memory!

I'm so sorry Paul. It's been two minths since I lost Porkchop. I really feel your pain. You and your family are in my thoughts. Raising a pint of Hefe right now.

Losing a pet is hard enough, but having to make the decision to have it done only adds to the grief. My condolences.

So sorry to hear that.  I'll raise a snifter of wheat wine in memory of Soileau's Kei Gogi Wetzel when I get home.
