+Dorsetgal & GeoDog Posted January 23, 2010 Share Posted January 23, 2010 Has anyone else been savaged by Caesar? If his tail wagged much harder it could cause a serious injury But seriously, two dogs that come to mind that I had no problems with at all are Chester and Caesar. Thank you for those kind words John. It is with a heavy heart that I share that Caesar passed away very suddenly recently. He was in a specialist veterinary hospital and even Coco, Kazs' young assistance dog who many of your met at the Mega in Weston, gave blood in a desperate attempt to save Caesars' life, but it was too late. We are absolutely devastated and shocked at the loss and sudden nature of his passing. I have lost a very dear companion and essential aide. Life without him and his help is takng some getting used to I know how well he was known and loved among this community, and share this here partly as a tribute to him, and partly to make things easier for myself ... telling everyone individually over the next weeks and months would be hard. Caesar started geocaching with me in August 2005, and since then we have found most caches together. Owing to his work as a Registered Assistance Dog, Caesar was with me all the time and had a Pet Passport which he used well. Caesar and I cached together in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, Canada and USA (San Diego, New York, Washington DC, Baltimore, Chicago, and throughout Michigan). We have many treasured memories of caching abroad and as there's nothing like a dog to break the ice at events, I owe Caesar a debt for introducing me to so many people who have become friends. We started caching together in the summer of 2005 and he became an excellent cache finder and on occasions retrieved the cache while I was still reading the clue! Indeed, Caesar was the reason I started geocaching. A friend suggested I buy a gpsr as a way of knowing how far I was walking with Caesar. Caesar will be sorely missed, he was one of those dogs where to know him was to love him. Caesar was out playing in the snow some twelve hours before the collapse that led to his death and I'm sharing the last photo taken of him before he went into hospital, as it's certainly a nice way to remember him.
