Stoli's Catch My Drift

To Drifter - May you be:

Forever Young

May the good Lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever Young, Forever Young
Forever Young, Forever Young

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
with a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
and in my heart you will remain
Forever Young, Forever Young
Forever Young, Forever Young
Forever Young
Forever Young

And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever Young, Forever Young
Forever Young ,Forever Young
Forever Young, Forever Young
For, Forever Young, Forever Young

Posted the day Drifter died:

It is with a heavy heart that I tell my friends of our loss. Today Drifter left us to join his friends on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Stoli's Catch My Drift ( 6-5-92 to 4-6-01)

To his friends he is known as "Drift" or "Bud" (sometimes even the "Bud boy")

No, he didn't turn out to be the show dog that we dreamed of. He was so much more.

After an 8+ year battle with problems caused by birth trauma and lack of oxygen in the birth canal, today Drifter asked to be set free from his struggle.

He was a puppy raiser extra-ordinaire - if you have a "Stoli Siberian" rest assured that Drifter helped to raise him or her.

He was Forest Gump in a dog package. A kind soul who would never hurt anyone, he was the epitome of unconditional love.

When, at age 14, Erika lost her life-long companion (Bandit) Drifter stepped in to take his place. Now he can join his friends, across the Rainbow Bridge, where he will be free from all of his burdens at last.

Godspeed, Drifter. There is a hole in my heart where you will always reside.
