Boss
9/6/2005 - 6/26/2020

After a short illness, we said goodbye to our dear Boss.
Dr Lori, from Lap of Love came to our home. Boss passed peacefully, in our arms. His sidekick, Pris, as always right by his side.
For those that did not know him.
Boss refused to submit to any commands.
He possessed integrity, and the ability to go his own way, as he (mostly) did the right thing.
Boss was loyal to his pack. He did not enter lightly into brawls, but bravely stood down dogs much larger than he, if they threatened his crew.
Boss did not tolerate poor dog manners. Most of his dog friends, with the exception of Pris, have a scar on their head to prove that they attended his etiquette class.
Boss loved his people from nearby, occasionally allowing himself to snuggle up in a lap, where he accepted hugs, kisses, and a good ear massage. Sometimes giving a very delicate lick to my chin, if I was feeling small.
I say that Boss was the best, most loving, smartest, bravest, cutest.......
Others think that he was just a “well managed asshole”.
My heart, that overflowed with love for him, overflows with
an aching grief. I look forward to the day when I can say his name with a smile, instead of a tear.
