In Memoriam: Hunter


Hunter came into the lives of the Fraser family 16 years ago. They had Tracker in their lives at the time and they wanted to enrich his life with a brother. When Hunter met Carole and Harold Fraser as a little pup, he knew he had found his forever home. The sentiment was mutual because his family fell deeply for Hunter.

However, when Hunter came home, Tracker wasn’t the happiest sibling. Tracker wanted nothing to do with Hunter until Hunter got under his skin. It wasn’t long, then, that Tracker began to fall in love with his brother as well.

Hunter was meant to come into the Fraser fold. He had issues like snoring too loud at night, itching like crazy, and an insane fear of fireworks and thunderstorms. My goodness – the poor pooch! But the Fraser clan accepted him and tried to help him get through his issues.

Carole has always referred to Hunter as “the Bestest Boy”. Hunter’s passing has been hard on the family but they know that dogs teach us so many things about life including how to love unconditionally.

As the Fraser family always says: “We learn so much from this painful, yet blissful lesson of loving our dogs. And it is all worth it. Ten times over and over and over. I’d do it again, and again and again. No matter how hard it is to say goodbye at the end. It is worth it. I have learned to love. And I have finally learned to love and let go and love again.” Please click this link to leave a message for the Fraser family.

  1. My deepest sympathies Carole. We will miss seeing your Hunter at the dog park and the basset waddle each year. My “Hunter, the basset” and I send our love and thoughts to you and Metro!

  2. Dear Carole and Family,
    So sorry to read about your loss. For as much as I knew him at the Waddles, he was always a friendly doggie, who interacted very well with the others around him. How is Metro adjusting to this loss? At least he has Howie to play with yet.
    Once again, deepest sympathy on loss of your “bestest”. We lost our Jackson, a lemon basset, in 2009 and we still feel a deep loss.

  3. Carole, we were so sad to hear about Hunter’s passing. He was a great guy, and I know you miss him terribly. We have lots of wonderful memories of bringing Ike by for a visit with Hunter and Metro. Hugs to all of you!

  4. Carole, we were so saddened to hear about the Hunter’s passing. He was a wonderful soul, and we know how much you will miss him. We have great memories of our visits when Ike, Hunter and Metro would play (or at least check each other out!). Our thoughts are with you. Take care!
