Dear Bosco,

Bosco
You have been gone for four months now, and I still deeply miss you. Your smile, our trips to do therapy visits, sitting and loving on you, your lovely fur to pet you and rubbing your belly as you fall asleep.

I can’t wait to see you over the bridge. I know that the Lord will have us come together after I pass from this earth, and I can’t wait to leave here and get my new body. I won’t hurt and neither will you.

Love you bunches,
Mum

Dear Buddy,

Oh my beloved Buddy, it has been 8 months now and I still live with a deep ache in my heart where there lies and unfilled vacancy. People tell me I should get another dog but I don’t think I could ever love another furbaby like I did you. I cry every time I think of you and I think of you every day. I pray the day will come when I can remember all our happy times without crying. Oh we had some happy times too.

How you loved riding in the truck with dad until you just couldn’t get up there anymore. Then there were those wonderful trips in the motor home. You got to watch the shoot-out in Tombstone with us. You got to see Old Faithful Blow with us. I miss how you would insist on sitting in my lap up in the front seat. You had no idea you were almost as big as me. You thought you were still that pudgy little yellow bundle of fur with that sweet smelling breath that I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on you. People would stop and take pictures of you sitting in the drivers seat while we were getting gas. You were big enough to drive the darn thing after all. Most of all, you loved going to the lake at the property up North. I loved how you would jump up and shoot out after a squirrel or rabbit only to realize it was in vain and come back acting like you really didn’t want to catch the dumb old thing anyways. Then you would run and jump in the lake and swim to your heart’s content. It made me so happy to see you get to do the things a dog loves to do. But the best part of those trips was when we curled up for the night in the big bed and kept each other warm.

You see why it’s so hard not to cry about the happy times. Then there was the time we stopped to let you out for a potty break and you took off straight up an embankment which we soon discovered was part of the California Aqueduct. Dad was hanging over the side and about to loose you by pulling you out of your collar. I got there just in time to grab your leg and we finally got you out. I got you all dried off and was putting away the towel and you headed straight back to the water. I am absolutely sure that was the fastest I have ever moved. The way you knew and understood me was like there was an Angel by my side always. When I twisted my ankle in the back yard and you ran in the house acting crazy trying to get Dad’s attention. You finally gave up because he just thought you had gone nuts. You came back and stayed right beside me licking my face until the pain subsided and then you let me hang on your back while you dragged me to my feet.

If I was depressed, upset, frightened or around someone you didn’t feel comfortable about you would literally stay beside me, touching my body with yours. Nobody in this world could ever feel more pure and unconditional love. I miss you laying on the floor in front of my chair so I could rub you with my feet. Then those moments when we would put our foreheads together and I would rub your silky soft ears. Those are the moments I will never again experience. You made my life so much more worth living. The,n as your face began to turn white and your legs grew weak, I knew the time was coming. But Buddy, I never dreamed you would have to go in such a horrible way and I am so sorry. I will never take Zeke or Precious to that hospital. I promise you. Now you’re over the rainbow bridge, playing with Harley, Duffy, and all the other great friends you made at the dog park.Your legs are strong and the color back in your face. No more pain. We will be together again and it will be Heaven because I know there will be wet noses in Heaven. Thank you Buddy for the wonderful memories you left with us in the short time you were with us. There will always be an unfilled vacancy in my heart

Dear Harley,

Harley

You passed away in my arms on April 23, 2013 which was your 10 1/2 birthday. I started missing you the moment you took your last breath. You were my big, beautiful, four-legged love. I know that you are at peace now. No more pain and sickness. You were such a stunning gift from God. You looked at me with those beautiful golden eyes with such love and devotion. You waited for me to come home at the door whenever I left. You always had a kiss for me when I asked. We laughed together, trained together, walked together, planted flowers together and even slept together. My heart aches for your companionship. I know that there will be a day when I don’t cry when I think of you. When I see another Doggy that looks like you, I won’t feel that pain in my heart and the pit of my stomach. Harley, I pray your beautiful spirit is at rest in heaven, and that when it’s time for me to go, I will see you again. I will always love you, friend. There will never be another Harley!

Love Forever, Mommy
