Going to our cottage.
He never had any.
He loved balls.
Anything he thought was people food.
Running free in the woods at the cottage.
Tricks..he didn't need tricks to get what he wanted
I decided it was time I got my first dog so I headed to our local shelter. I wondered around, looking at all the dogs and falling in love over and over again. I came upon one kennel with four puppies in it, and I seen this face. This sweet adorable face that I just couldn't walk away from. I knew in my heart, this was MY puppy. I guess in life sometimes you just know. Maybe it's fate, maybe it's love at first sight, whatever the reason behind it I knew I was going home with this puppy. My daughter who was 5 at the time named him Bear.
While I was filling out his adoption papers the workers filled me in on the story of how these puppies came to the shelter.
They were placed in a box and dropped off at our local mall sometime during the night. When someone came to open, they found four underweight very young puppies discarded by the door. They had to be put in foster until they were old enough to be adopted.
It has been 5 years since Bear passed away. He devoted 13 wonderful years of his life to our family, protecting and giving us love everyday, and I want to thank him for that. My heart broke that day he passed, the day I held his head in my hands and said my good-byes. We miss and love you so much Bear. My special boy who is still in my heart, my thoughts and my memories.
Always my Boo.
My best friend closed his eyes last
night, As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through
my head, As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And OH...his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart thats filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends,
HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
