Four years ago, on this day, Bebe came into my life. I remember her being so small, matted fur, neglected, and she wouldn't leave my lap. She just wanted to lie there cuddled up with me. I fell in love immediately. I do not know the woman who neglected her beforehand, but I was blessed that Bebe found her way to me instead of having to suffer.
It is hard to believe that 4 years ago, Bebe was just a tiny, innocent puppy who needed me. I needed her too. It is also hard to believe that in January, it will be 2 years since she passed away from IMHA and Heart Disease. Why couldn't she have lived longer? I think she was MY angel.
Bebe came into my life to teach me how to love something so much that you would drop anything for it. The last 3 months of her life, when she was sick, I was always home by her side... making sure she got her medication on time, making sure she had someone with her so she would not be alone while she was suffering. Bebe became my life and once she was lost, my life was lost.
I no longer had a bestfriend who was always by my side, a friend who always made me laugh because of the goofy things she would do. I was alone.
In honor of Bebe, I will begin planning her big event that is going to be on the 2 year anniversary of her passing - January 31st. Last year, I planned a party and was going to donate the proceeds to the Humane Society of the Piedmont in my local city, however, it snowed but some were kind enough to still send a donation in Bebe's honor. I will begin planning starting today and I already know what organization will be receiving my donations :)
