It's sad news that I have to report but I've told Mom that it's time. I've told Dad that it's time. I tried to tell Puppy but all he wanted to do was hop like a bunny.
I wanted to stay longer. I'm sorry that I won't get to see my Uncle Brett on this side of The Bridge again. He was one of my favourite people ever. I wanted to make sure Puppy grows up with a healthy respect and love for animals, especially dogs and especially Shar Peis. I've asked Stuffie to keep you updated on how our family is doing after I've crossed The Bridge. And if a few of you could remind them every now and then in blog comments or Facebook messages that I'll love them forever, I'd appreciate it.
Could you guys also tell the next dog that joins my family - because I'm sure there will be another dog at some point - tell that dog that he (or she) is lucky to get this family as their forever home. There's a lot of love here to share, but that spot at the end of the bed, the one on Daddy's side, that spot is mine.
Sniff ya later
From Bolo's Mom.
My heart is breaking and I feel that the world should stop to mourn one of the most gentle of souls as he crosses The Bridge. His Dad and I were right there with him as he Crossed, just as Bolo has been there for every moment of the last 6 years and 4 months he's been with us.
I always hoped Bolo and I would walk Puppy to his first day of school and walk him back home again until Bolo was too old to walk that far. I wish I had spent more time with Bolo these last two years since I feel he got short changed once Puppy came along. Most of all, I wish I had more time to let him know how much I love him. I really hope he knows.
