A must see and must do in Traverse City !
A beautiful article about TVC's beautiful team. RIP Piper- never to be forgotten.
Our community has lost a legacy, a protector, a happy soul. Sweet Piper- we are grateful for your hard work with your human, Brian Edwards. Thank you for your smiles, your high fives, and chasing away all of those birds to protect our families! RIP sweet dog!
With heavy hearts, we shed tears at the news of our sweet friend Piper. He will be missed so much. We were honored to know you, sweet boy. We offer our sincerest condolences to his best friend, and companion, Brian. Thank you, Piper... you made millions of people smile! You are forever etched into hearts worldwide. ❤ #bestbordercollie
It is with the ultimate sadness I must report the passing of my best friend and love of my life.
Piper passed away tonight peacefully in my arms after ...fighting a year-long battle with prostate cancer. He fought valiantly, and we did everything we could, but sometimes life just has to take its course.
Today, Piper enjoyed a pain-free day, filled with love from family and friends, mostly his fellow airport employees. He played soccer, got some much deserved butt scratches and yes, he chased away one last snowy owl as he sailed into the night.
As I hope was plainly evident, we are grateful. Grateful to have done what we loved for three years and had a whole hell of a lot of fun doing it. Mostly though, we're grateful for all of your support. It's what's really helped us through the dark days.
As we leave you tonight, know that Piper is in a better place. I only ask for your patience as I take time to tend to my shattered heart.
Lastly, as a final act of true class, the flag you see here draped over Piper's body flew today at U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City and was taken down, folded and presented to us and a token of their love. Please join me in thanking the men and women, past and present, of Air Station Traverse City for their awesomeness. Piper and I are forever in your debt.
Brian & Piper
