our sweet bear

it's been a wonderful, challenging and educational run with Sidney.
he was a boy to be reckoned with
he loved our family life

and most of all we loved him.
he was abandoned at our farm in 2001, at the age of 2, in the middle of the night, a young male with a bucket list of issues. the humane society said he was incorrigible so we decided to give him a home on the farm.

it's been a wild 10 years but he was a love and yes,
he passed away yesterday.
see you on the bridge budster. you will always be a part of Long Ridge Farm.


  1. I am so sorry you lost Sidney, but I'm glad he found such a wonderful, loving home to spend 10 years in.

  2. Dear Nancy & Jack,
    So sorry to learn about Sidney! Thinking of you.
    Hugs, Holly & Chuck

  3. Oh sweet, sweet sorry to hear this..they are with us for such a short time :(

  4. Sorry to hear about Sidney.

  5. So sorry for your loss.

  6. Oh Nancy,
    You and yours have my deepest sympathies. I know how hard it is to lose a much loved companion.
    Sidney certainly had a fantastic home with you. Everyone was just where they were meant to be.
    We'll light a candle here for him today. I know he'll find some boon companions over the bridge.
    Big hugs, it doesn't get any easier even if you know it's coming.

  7. SO sorry to hear about your Sidney. :( Big hugs to you and yours.

  8. Oh no Nancy! I am so, so sorry for your loss! Sending love and hugs. I have 2 black labs and they are the best.
