This past Thursday, we lost our dear friend Einstein.

I can’t express in words how important Einstein has been to us and what a central presence he has been in our lives and on the farm.  And I won’t try.  I know we are not alone in our sadness over this loss and I’m sorry to have to share this news.

In memory of Einstein…

    Very moving guys. What matters is not length of life but quality. Einstein certainly had a rich, full and fun life. As much as any living being could ever hope to. Good work.

    Beautiful tribute. I am so sorry for your loss. Every week we are used to say hello to Einstein and Plato and it happened that last Saturday I didn’t. I feel so sad that I didn’t take a few minutes to play with them and that I didn’t even realize Einstein was missing :-(
    We will miss him.

    What a beautiful little film. I am crying all over again for the loss of Einstein – and Brando – and all the other animals who enrich our lives so much with their affection and joy.

    Lovely tributes from Einstein’s extended farm family. Clearly he had many two-legged friends to play with, and made many smile…

    So so sorry for you loss Dave and Sasha! What a great tribute to Einstein, it made me laugh and cry. You have so many great pictures and video to remember him with, and those times were so special. What an amazing life that creature lived…great friends, great food and a whole lot of love! He put so many smiles on kids faces (big and small) and he will forever be missed. May your sorrow be replaced by all of those wonderful memories you have shared with your friend Einstein.
