Arrival Story:
About six months after my husband and I got married, we knew we needed a puppy to make our family complete. On a random search in a local paper, we found an ad for bichon/lhasa mix puppies. The house wasn't located in a "good" section of town, so since my husband was at work, he asked his best friend to go with me instead. (I think it was more so I didn't make any quick decisions!) Even though he was the runt of the litter and his biological family had given him a silly name, it was love at first sight. I knew my husband needed to be involved in picking our puppy, but I left a deposit anyway. I insisted that he go straight from work to see the puppy. I was so afraid he was going to come home with the deposit instead of our puppy....but our puppy, re-named with his "rightful" name Moose, came home with Daddy that night. He was scared being away from my birth mom and siblings, so he cried for a while that night. I ended up sleeping on the floor next to his crate for about the first week. I then convinced my husband to let him sleep in "the big boy bed" just for one night.....he never slept in the crate again!

Moose was the only child we've ever had. After 2 long months of undergoing extensive alternative drug treatments, as well as chemotherapy, the cancer took over his body. We gave him our final act of love on July 31, 2006. It has only been three weeks yesterday since he's been gone, but every day without him is an eternity. Our hearts ache with how badly we miss him, even though we find some comfort in knowing that he's crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with his family members who have crossed before him and that we will one day hold him in our arms again instead of just our hearts.
