7/8/2011 - 4/17/2019**I've tried to edit this as best I could, it's hard for me to keep reading this over n over so if anyone ends up reading this and notices a typo, PLEASE lmk so I can fix it. I hope all of this comes out right and shows just how important Doogie was to me and to other's. Doogie helped a lot of people through difficult times with his self-less life devoted to making everyone and everything that crossed his path aware that he had nothing but love to give... I wish I could say it was something I did but all I did recognize something special in him from the moment I laid eyes on him... I could clearly see that somehow the universe presented me with something extremely important that I needed and that needed me. I'll never be the same person I was prior to rescuing Doogie, he was doing the work of God... A guardian angel that I needed and that needed me. Thank you for your years of service and friendship Doogie, this memorial site is meant to carry on the memory of Doogie... I pray that it will show just how much he meant to me. I'm sorry if I'm babbling, I present doogie's memorial website!!!

I haven't been able to wrap my head around the fact that I'll never see Doogie again. It's been three weeks now and I'm finally able to submit this. It's still difficult to write about the best friend I've ever had... I miss you so much... I cry everyday and I don't know how this is even real. It all happened so fast, I thought for sure a miracle would happen because you didn't have much time, I just wanted more time. This is too much... I can't do this yet. Doogie was my angel and my best friend and my therapist and my vocal coach and I feel empty without his unconditional love.

That message started to be written the day Doogie passed away and it took me three weeks to finish. Even though I am starting to get myself in the right direction...

I miss Doogie. He was a good friend to me too. I used to love riding around in my old Toyota with you and him in the back seat, his big doggy head sticking out the window smiling at the whole world. What an amazing dog. And just to let you know Joe you're an amazing friend with a heart of gold. Best of luck in Maryland and I'll be here when you come back to visit. Keep in touch and God bless. Love you man and R.I.P. sweet Doogie. :) -AndrewAndrew Maniscalco - June 8, 2019
I knew Doogie meant the world to you. Since your father passed you withdrew from family functions. I believe Doogie helped you keep your shit together. Now that you have moved to Maryland I hope you succeed in whatever makes you happy. Best of luck. uncle rickyRicky Young - June 5, 2019
So sorry for your loss of an extraordinary funny, loving friend. Even though I never met Doogie, I could tell from the pictures and posts how special he was. Find peace knowing how much you helped each other and that he had a wonderful life because of you.Debra Toth - June 5, 2019
