Handsome Ransom 3/19/02-2/13/15

We lost our beloved ‘Handsome Ransom’ this weekend at almost 13 years of age. This is a video of his last duck hunt at 10 years old with Raymond E. Ladd, Sr.​ and Carolyn Ladd​ who loved him dearly and took him into their home at a year old. What a wonderful life they gave him.

“In his grief over the loss of a dog, a little boy stands for the first time on tiptoe, peering into the rueful morrow of manhood. After this most inconsolable of sorrows there is nothing life can do to him that he will not be able somehow to bear.” – James Thurber
