So many of you have met Hank over the years, so I hope you don't mind me posting the loss here.
Hank was almost 13 years old and was just a pup when we began our RV life. He was in the coach every time it started. I think he thought it was his and I was only the chauffeur. He had travel to 44 of the states and several Canadian Providences. He attended over a dozen Barth GTG, several Foretravel Rallies, Good Sams National Rallies, and FMCA Rallies.
One of my favorite memories will be his relationship with Tom Johns, with who we usually travel. Tom travels with 2 cats and no dogs but he always kept dog biscuits in his coach for Hank. He always gave Hank 3 but he would give him 1 and have 2 more in his pocket. Hank could COUNT. In the morning Hank could be found laying at Toms door steps waiting on Tom to come out.
He will be remembered always in our hearts.

We are so sorry. Hank was such a good boy, and I am pretty sure it's because of the way he was loved. You and Donna gave him a good home and a very good life. He was one lucky boy. He surely will be missed.
Hank was a fine dog indeed. He was a great travel companion. Many good memories. We will miss him for sure.

So sorry, Nick. It's hard to explain the connection we have with our dogs--I'm sitting here with Rocky the dog as I write this. These friends of our show us unconditional love. It's a pretty rare thing. Hank will be with you always.

Nick we are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Some people call them animals, we call them family members. They have their way of making their way into our hearts and are there forever. Hank made his way into many hearts. He will be missed by all.
Tom & Loraine,
Nick and Donna,
I too, am sorry for your loss.
Be comforted by the thought that Hank has trotted down the road at that Great RV Camp in the Sky to sit and chat with Casey and Rusty about all the wonderful times you all had and all the great Barth Folks they had met.
You will never be able to replace Hank but, do not hesitate to fill the space he left.
God bless you all.

RIP Hank, he was truly a great dog, one of a kind.
So sorry for your loss.
I remember walking by your coach and reading the wooden plaque "Nick, Donna and Hank Cagle". Not knowing you then I thought Hank is your son. I guess he was in a way your 3rd son.

Nick and Donna,
Sorry to hear that Hank has moved on and for your loss of a faithful companion and dear friend.
My favorite memories of Hank were from the 1st Minnesnowta GTG.
First, Hank never once left your side while you and Tom cooked up a delicious batch of Gumbo, showing his loyalty, perseverance and that he was one very smart little guy with very well defined priorities.
Second, Hank joining in all the fun and singing a great duet with Kenny even though neither one of them knew all the words.
He had a great life and loving family and all who knew him will miss him.
