It is with sadness that we would like to let everyone know that our faithful dachshund Mozie passed away yesterday afternoon. He was 14 years old and lived a good life, so we can’t be too regretful. We brought Mozie and his father, Shubie, down to Haiti on a Missionary Flights International cargo plane in 2006. They adapted to their new living conditions very well, especially since we had brought with us the crates that had been their homes in Milwaukee. I think they only thing they really missed were carpeted floors! We even fed them imported dog food from the US and they thrived. Shubie died about 3 years ago at the age of 16!
Even as he aged, Mozie always seemed like a little puppy, ready to play with anyone who would pay him any attention. We had to warn our visitors that if you play with Mozie once, you’ll never hear the end of it! His age caught up with him this past year, though, when he developed severe cataracts and couldn’t see well. He recently lost his appetite and, with it, his strength, until he passed away quietly yesterday afternoon when we returned home from work. He was a faithful friend and companion and we’ll miss him. Bless you, Mozie!
Mozie in better times.
