Tribute for Ralph

It truly is with a heavy heart we must inform you that we have lost another magnificent hero, PSD Ralph crossed the rainbow bridge on February 5, 2024.  His valiant battle with cancer has finally ended. Ned’s Wish helped with his care, buying him a little more quality time with his human family, who miss his presence and his energy every day.

Most of you will fondly remember Ralph for all his star appearances at the annual golf tournament making his rounds on the golf course! Ralph was also beautifully featured as Mr February in our 2024 Ned’s Wish Calendar.

Ralph’s handler wanted to share this with everyone:

“Good morning Stacey. Could you pass on my sincerest gratitude to all of your Ned’s Wish crew please. All of the work that your organization did and continues to do for Ralph and all of the other retirees is greatly appreciated beyond words. Thank you.”

Rest in Peace and thank you for your service sweet Ralph.

The Watch Dog’s Watch Ends

By Tamsen Butler

It’s time to rest, my pup.
Your watch has come to an end.
Make your journey on up
And wait for me, my friend.

Rest well, my hound.
No need to stay alert.
You needn’t make a sound
Don’t fret about my hurt.You were a vigilant friend
And a loyal, happy dog.
I’ll stay with you until the end
And leave in an emotional fog.

In the memory of…
