A Diary of Chopper's Adventures while Growing up


One year without you Buddy

A year ago I lost my best bud. We got up on a regular Monday and he obviously was in distress. By the end of the day you would be gone. I don't remember a lot of the day but I know you were in pain and they finally took you to surgery around 5 pm and you never came back. The details are not as important as it is for me to say here how much I loved and still love you. I miss our mornings in the back yard, walks along the river and just hanging at the coffee shop. I don't really do any of those things now. Jesse has joined us but she is not at all like you. I guess when you were young you were pretty intense but you mellowed and became my best buddy. I am sorry for all the time you spent alone and I wish I could have been home from work more. I know you enjoyed your "alone time" and having you own door made it so you could go lay outside in sun when ever you wanted. We would often come home and find you soaking up the sun. After Chloe I thought I'd never find another dog that could melt my heart the way she did, but you did it. I think of you everyday and will until I die. I look at your picture everyday and remember something about you. I know there are details I've forgotten already but I will always remember you resting on the floor with me at night and how much I loved you. I miss you. Love Dad.

 

I miss you Buddy...

Jesse keeps me busy but when I finally have a moment my mind turns to you. I feel so much sorrow about losing when you deserved so much more. You were supposed to get to be an "old man" and you were cheated out of that. I'm so sorry. I don't think there was much more I could have done that would have not been too painful and letting you go was still the best decision... doesn't make it any easier. I just miss you and wish you were here to share those quiet times again. Love Dad.

 

Losing my Best Friend

On July 13, 2015 I lost my best friend. Chopper taught me so much and he was my constant companion. He slept with me and always had to be touching me or be next to me. He insisted on his daily walks to checkup on the neighborhood. The kids in the neighborhood loved him dearly and always ran up to pet him with their words 'Chop Chop come here'. I didn't know I had to capacity to love a dog like this. When he looked at me, I could feel the love in his eyes. He was gentle, loving, loyal and did whatever we asked. He had several trips to the Vet and the Vet specialists with many pokes and prods and blood draws. He Never once complained and went willingly to the vet every time. He loved sitting next to me, while we both binge watched shows on Netflix. Of course, there was his snoring that was so cute during all this. He also insisted on his daily massages to keep his muscles in shape and help with his stiffness. He loved going to the farmer's market with Dad on the weekends and going to the coffee shop to be adored by all. Right now, I just can't imagine my life without him. Chopper, we love you. I hope you know how much you were loved by all and how much you are missed.
