We unfortunately had to put our much loved dog down, here is what Tracy wrote about him. It has been hard losing him especially for Tracy as he was her baby.
? - Feb 28/13 - Dec.14/19
How do you say goodbye to someone that you loved with your whole heart and soul. How do you say goodbye to your little shadow, your best buddy, one of the little loves of your life.
How do you say goodbye to your constant companion that loves you as much as they love life, I don’t know.
I don’t when Higgins was born but I do know the day he was born to us that day was Feb. 28, 2013.
One of my favorite poems is “The Dash” there are 2 dates the beginning and the end but what is the most important is the dash that dash is how your life was lived. I don’t know how Higgins first dash was lived but by the shape you were in when you came to us it wasn’t a good dash.
I can only hope you felt so loved beyond words because you were. You were one of the family and my little baby and bed hog.
You brought me so much happiness with all your crazy little antics! You were such a happy, kind and loving dog! Your tail was always wagging where ever you went. You loved to greet everyone you met then carry on your merry way. You were such a quiet dog never really barking or bothering anyone. If you had to go out, you would just go stand by the door and wait for us to notice you. Thank you for not peeing on the floor waiting for us to notice!
The only time you were demanding was to go for your morning walk, you loved that walk and could hardly wait to get to your park, you had to see who had been there. You loved to smell every blade of grass and let every other dog know that you had been there. Kick that dirt up there!
Oh how you loved your treats, your treat closet and loved to take me, dad or any poor sucker you could find to follow you there.
You were such a kind and wonderful soul you lovingly excepted every foster dog I brought into your home and willingly shared me with them, you knew they needed a mom too, until they could find one of their own. I think you knew that they came from the same horrible situation you came from.You fell in love with a little blind kitten and made us adopt him for you! You were such a great dad to him. Unfortunately he passed away only a year after coming into our lives.
You loved to be with us no matter what we were doing or where we were going except to the vet! We will always have a good laugh at the fact, no matter how sick or in pain you were in the minute we walked through the vet doors you were miraculously cured!!
You were so loved by everyone that met you they would all comment on what a nice dog you are and so soft!
We drove on all our vacation so you could come along as there was no way in hell I was leaving you behind.
Unfortunately your health was failing and you couldn’t stay any longer. No matter how much I wished you could.
You left us on a sunny warm day in California where you came to us from.
My little Cali boy went home to die but not to stay! You are coming back to Canada with us just not the way I thought, I was so worried this may be your last trip and prayed it wouldn't be.
I can only hope I made your dash a wonderful one!
I’m going to miss you more than you will ever know, I’m going to miss your kisses, your sweet happy face, your sweet loving demeanor, your wagging tail and it was always wagging, your bed hogging and all your crazy antics.
How do I say goodbye? I won’t I’ll only say one day we will be together again and I look so forward to that day!
