He was Conni's rescue pet found the day before we left on our trip back in April.
He was such a cute little guy. Loved to scamper around on us and the RV.
Rue had to be fed from a teeny weeny bottle. He would hold onto it with both "hands" and slurp it down. He really was a cute little fellow.
And then, one day, he took a tumble from the kitchen counter down to the floor. Spread eagle. Splat.
Two days later, he was dead.
Since then, he has been in our freezer.
For almost 2 months, and 7,000 miles.
Today, Conni found the perfect place to put Rue to rest.
First of all, she built a raft. Then she tested it and found it seaworthy.
Next, a little run back to the RV to retrieve Rue out of the freezer.
She placed Rue in the raft and added a flag.
Making sure the "Good-bye Rue" flag is up.
There he is... a little fur ball on the raft.
And he's off. Happy sailing, Rue!

A near collision! This dog was out playing fetch with a frisbee. Rue and his raft almost bumped into him. You can see the raft between the rock and the dog.
We're all glad Rue has been properly disposed of. What a way to go, too. Floating peacefully down a gorgeous river in WY!
