BooBoo, July 1994-May 23, 2008
I will miss you, my dear little friend. Your absence has created an unimaginable void in our home and family, and in my heart. You were my self-appointed bodyguard for nearly fourteen years. You were a big dog in a small body. You'd have given your life for me if necessary. Until you lost your eyesight, no one was allowed within six feet of me without your approval, not even Daddy.
You have been a constant presence by my side, mourning when I left the house without you, because, after all, how could you be protecting me if you weren't with me? I know you thought that.
Old age had robbed much from you, but now you are released from the agonies brought on by it. Now I know you can see, you can hear, you can run and jump, and you can watch over me from above, because I choose to believe that all dogs go to Heaven.
Oh, how I miss you, my precious BooBoo.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.
~2 Corinthians 1:3-5 NKJV
