Willie, the cool dude of Haverhill!

My Beautiful Boy

I watch you sleep on your lovely blankets from Bee & Muffin and wonder how I will survive without you. You have brought me more love and joy than one person could ever ask for but selfishly I want more.

Your little legs just can't seem to hold you anymore and I see the light fading from your eyes but just when I think, it's time, you look at me and that old spark returns and I say, no, not yet.

How can I cry anymore tears I wonder but they still come and you are still here! How many more will come in the days ahead.

My heart hurts so badly that I find it hard to breath. How did you worm your way into it so that each day, each hour, each minute revolves around you? I didn't want to love you so much when I first brought you home as I knew someday this heartache would overwhelm me and overtake me and fill me with such sadness that pieces of my heart would stab me with a pain so strong that nothing in this world can compare.

You are truly my heart dog, beautiful boy. We have spent so many years together in such joyful abandon. How very blessed I have been to have you. You have given me more than any little dog could possibly give a human and more and I love you with every fiber of my being.

I will sit beside you and watch you rest until I know for sure that your final rest is here. I fear it is soon. I can only give you one final gift which you deserve my little pal. It will be the hardest gift of all but one that I promised you.

I kiss your forehead and pat your frail little body. You will always be my beautiful boy.

Many hugs and pawyers are going out to you from here, my sweet pal, carried along on rivers of tears...that come as one, mingled together from all who know and love you, too.

Throw a party.. CELEBRATE .... because it is celebrating LIFE.

The wonderful memories.. the growls too.

When the time comes for that last gift.. dont let death steal LIFE.

There are no easy paths.. but you can fill the dark ones with the light of the love you have.. and have shared.

Oh, Joni,
How I know this pain...

How do you fix this for him? How can you make him well again?
I wish there was an answer. There isn't, but you know that. He has been so very blessed with you, as you are with him.

Please know we continue to pray for our Willie. May your remaining days together be happy days.

Holding you close in our hearts,

Oh, Willie! When I think of you and your mom, I think of 'firsts', because you were always among the first to be there whenever somedog needed pawrayers and cheering up, or when there was a celebration going on. Your kind, loving, generous heart made you beloved by everydog who knows you two. Our hearts are absolutely breaking for your mom--we know that YOU will be just fine no matter what. We love you and are pawraying for a miracle.

You are in our thoughts and prayers and we're sending you all the strength and PoTP we can. Joni, remember always...ALL THAT LOVE COULD DO WAS DONE! All of us here at Dogster will be here for you when Willie makes his journey to the Bridge and he will never leave your heart and will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him.
Love and comfort,

My dear sweet friend Willie, please know how much Mommy & I love you. You & your magnificent Mom have always shared unbelievably kind & encourging words with all of us. I can't begin to count the times you've brought a smile to my face & made my heart feel warmer.

I've got my mighty Yorkie paws crossed so tightly for you & whenever you or your Mom need an extra hug, just close your eyes & know I'm sending them to you.

Much love & never-ending Power of the Paw...

Dear sweet Willie and mom....our hearts are breaking as mom knows the pain of watching such a loved member of the family's time to make their trip to the Bridge gets close.

You will always be with your mom in her heart...and you will always remain a special pup in our own hearts as well.

Many hugs to you and to your mom.

We have been through so much lately but reading this has brought more tears to our eyes than anything we have been through. We know how very much you have been loved and have loved and helped your Mom through the most difficult days of her life. I could never tell you how deeply sorry we are for you both. I am sure you are one of Mom's biggest blessing and all of ours too. We know how terribly sad your Mom is and we wish we could hug her and make the pain go away but we know we can't so we just want you both to know that you are both very loved and we hope you go with out too much pain and Mom finds some comfort and hopefully in the future she can love another pup as you were so loved. I know everyone at the bridge will love you so much.

God Bless you both and so much love to the both of you!!

Our roles as "mom" bring us incredible joy and happiness, but with that also comes the pain of separation! There is always a time when we must physical part with our "baby" and that time is such a life branding event that we often see no reason to go on living! Believe me, I know! But, there will be a smile that will surface when your heart tells you that your Willie is painfree! And from that smile, you will work your way back into the living. Each day, as happy memories flood your brain and chase away the sad ones, you will find yourself thinking, "What would Willie want me to do?"
Willie will always be there with you! Never forget he's right there!

All the prayers and love from you and others are doing a world of wonders for Willie as he's a bit better!

He went to the vet yesterday and the vet just can't understand how his little legs have improved enough to hold him and let him walk short distances. This has allowed him to be able to pee and poop. He's drinking and still eating like a wolverine. He does sleep very heavily and alot but is not in pain at this time.

I know it's not a miracle cure that will give him months and years, but it's giving him days which are precious to us both.

He's a little fighter and as long as he's willing to fight and is not in pain, I will drive him to walks to allow his little legs to only walk when he has to do so. I'm cooking his favorite foods and spending as much time with him as I can.

Comcast is putting all new lines in our complex so we keep losing our internet but I'll jump on when I can to keep you updated.

We love you and keep on thinking of us as it's working a miracle of time!

Love, Joni and Willie
