Arrival Story: Boudreaux is one of Goldie's pups. He was born in my house and has been with me his whole life. He was the biggest, baddest of the pups, but also very laid back. I decided I had to keep one of Goldie's pups, and my husband and Boudreaux bonded really well, so I picked him.
See Goldie's page for her story of how she ended up having her puppies with me. : )
Bio: Boudreaux is the love of my life. We have a bond like no other I've experienced. He learned everything he knows from his brother, our Angel Gonzo.
Boudreaux lost his battle with an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. He was helped to the Bridge on July 6, 2010. My heart is broken. He was too young to have suffered so much. Cancer took my baby at 4 years, 8 months and 8 days...
I will love him forever and a piece of my heart is gone...
Oh Boudreaux, I miss you so much sweet boy! Today would have been your 6th birthday. We were supposed to celebrate so many more birthdays together. Four was not enough!
I have brought your brother Magoo up to your favorite place in Arkansas. He seems to really like it too. In a little while, we will be going up to the property where we were supposed to live happily ever after together. I'm going to spend some time at "Boudreaux's Rock". That's where I scattered some of your ashes last year on the 4 month anniversary of your Bridge Day. I can't believe that this is the second birthday you've spent at the Bridge. My heart still aches for you. I have some very special pups in my life, but none of them can fill the hole that you left in my heart - that will be there until we meet again one day.
Happy Birthday, Boudy. I love you - yesterday, now and forever.
Oh Boudy...today is so hard for me. I opened your page and heard Mercy Me singing "Homesick" and fell apart. I had hoped we would celebrate this day together. I still remember when the vet told me you had Mesenteric Carcinoma and that your prognosis was 2 weeks to 12 months...I hoped and prayed we'd celebrate your 5th birthday together, but it was not to be. Six weeks after your diagnosis, I had to say good-bye to you. Not a day goes by that I don't shed a tear for you. I love you so much and feel like there's a hole in my heart nothing can fill.
I remember when you were born...in the wee hours of the morning. I was filled with so much love. Roudy woke me up this morning about 3:45...that had to be close to the time you were born 5 years ago today.... Thank you for sending Roudy to me. No pup can replace you, but you knew what my heart needed - Roudy's silly antics keep me laughing.
I have never had such a special bond with anypup...you were my heart, my love. I long to hold you again and to bury my face in your soft fur. I miss snuggling with you, playing soccer with you and just being with you. I hope you know that when you left this earth, my love for you did not end. It is here, in my heart...forever.
I love you...more than words can express. Happy Birthday, my sweet boy.
Mom tested it out and it worked for her, but if it doesn't work and you would like to donate, mom can send the link directly to your human's email address if you are comfortable giving mom your email address...just message me here on dogster and let her know.
