Goodbye, My Sweet BooBoo


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

Sympathy. My prayers are with you during this sad time.

Our furbabies are so special and we miss them so much when they go to heaven to wait for us.

Awww, I'm so sorry you lost your friend. When my kitty died, I was lost without him. Our pets bring so much joy to our lives, they become a part of out family.

Renna, I'm so sorry! I know the pain, too. There's a big lump in my throat as I look at BooBoo's picture. Our furbabies give us so much and expect so little in return, don't they! Take care, and I'll be praying for you! Cora

We lost our dog, Squirt, in January so I know what you're going through. I'm sorry for loss. I know you must have loved her very much. Funny how attached we get, isn't it? Praying for you!

Renna,

I can feel yoour pain as I lost my female Golden retreiver on May 10, 2008 and she was almost 10 years old. My male a week apart in age is missing her so much as we are.

May BooBoo have crossed to the rainbow bridge to be with all before him and playing and pain free. You can light a candle there for him. www dot rainbowbridge dot com.

Blessinsg to you, may your winning garden angel from Kat449 at katerpillars blog bless you with wonderful memories!

I am so sorry for your loss, Renna...

Tipper said...

Renna-I'm so sorry. I know it hurts so bad to loose a trusted loyal pet that you so loved.

Claudia said...

First of all, thank you for your very loving post to my own blog. I appreciate your words more than I can say, and I will be visiting you more often now that I've found a kindred spirit here.

And then please allow me to say how sad I am at your loss. I understand this void so much. I lost Pickles, a Maine Coon and the love of my life, five years ago and I still miss him like crazy. *hugs* to you

Farm Chick Paula said...

Oh no...
Renna, I am soooo sorry- I've been away from the computer all weekend and I've missed this until now....
((BIG HUG))

Oh Renna. I just don't know what to say. BooBoo does look like Po. My daughter gave him to me when my little yorkie, Squeeker died. And little Squeeker was a replacement for another little yorkie, Ponji. Like BooBoo, they too were just old, and it was their time. I KNOW dogs and other animals go to heaven. How can Jesus come back on a white horse if there's no animals in heaven? I am sooo sorry for your loss...I know exactly what you're going thru. Little Po has certainly been a Godsend. I swore, after the loss of 2 of these little creatures I'd never get another one. But when my daughter brought him in.......well..... you know. We've been inseparable ever since. God will send you another little creature to watch over you.

Love ya,
Vic
