I don't usually post twice in a day but I really want to pay tribute Kramer, a very special dog and former family member. Jenelle's (Jeremy's sister) service dog, Kramer, ended his 13 year life this morning. He spent 10 years in service then his last 2+ years were spent in retirement. He was a typical lab but he was not a typical dog. He was more to our family than a pet, he was truly a contributing family member. He will be greatly missed!
In honor of Kramer:
Puppy kisses for Leif
Young Kramer was very playful

That same summer we picnicked at a lake and Kramer got to do one of his favorite things: swim
Here's Kramer swimming while Jenelle is kayaking alongside him.

Christmas 2004 Kramer loved to help open presents and tear through the paper
Kramer was trained to lay under tables during meals and he got comfy at my wedding and stretched out under our table. You can see his head sticking out in the bottom left hand of the pic.
Our wedding Oct 2005 Johnson family photo
Kramer helped us all get ready before the wedding
He looked very debonaire in his tux
Then Kramer had a good time with us in the limo on the way to the reception
