A life lived & loved

Varazs Bartok Bluebeardscastle "Bartok"
February 2, 1998 - April 18, 2012 

I am sad to announce that Bartok crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday to be with his brother Otis, sister Rosie, mother Nekah and father Rowdy.  He was out of a litter of 4 puppies and the last breeding I did with his dam, Nekah.  Bartok, in his 15th year, was loved and owned by Renate, Oliver and their son Jarno Gepraegs.  He will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace dear, sweet and mischievous Bartok.

  1. It's always so hard to say goodbye to a dog. They are your best friends, best companions, best family members (well, except they don't usually pick up their toys but they are way better than most people). So sorry for your loss and that of Bartok's owners.

  2. Always so sad. My thoughts are with you...

    1. Thanks Karen. You know what it's like to go through this.
