I had a kitty who had a myriad of health problems from the moment I got him, and I paid through the nose to keep him healthy and comfortable over the years. I think that's what drew me to Corbin, who also had a variety of health issues. I prayed for him over the years just as I have for all of my own pets. I was sad when he got sick, and I got excited when he would overcome some hurdle and I'd think everything would be OK again. I never met him, but I still have a great deal of love and affection for him. My heart broke for Corbin, and for his family, when I read the post first on Facebook and then on blogger that the time had come for him to cross the rainbow bridge. I will miss him.

Corbin was special in other ways too. His blog extolled the virtues of pit bulls, and did their part to ensure that people were educated about the breed. He was also a foster brother to many other doggies, and helped to show Diamond and many others that there is love and goodness in the world. Best of all, he was one handsome dude!!! Who could resist that sweet face?
Pets come and go, but it never gets any easier when it's their time. I've learned this from experience. Corbin was well loved and will be greatly missed. Run free, sweet boy!
