Brave
8/2/2009 - 8/2/2020Dear Bravey,

I miss you more than you will ever know. I feel your loss deep in my heart and wish that I could see your wagging tail in every moment that you're gone.

You brought me so much joy and love and I am so thankful for that. You showed me how to show unconditional love and appreciation for a time that I knew was short-lived. You were sick with cancer that was slowly taking over your health and well-being. It was difficult to observe you in your bad days but the good days made me so happy. I still remember the first day you gave me a tail wag; it was early morning when I woke up. You came into the bedroom and stood at the door and wagged your tail to show me you were happy to see me. From that moment on, I was so deeply in love with you. You showed me that you trusted me and that you felt comfortable in that moment. Your life prior to me was not great and I could imagine that you had a difficult time trusting so I was so appreciative and felt so lucky that you showed your trust in me.

From the moment you came to me to the day you left me, I loved you. I will continue to love you and hope to see you at the Rainbow Bridge when it's my time to go. I pray that Snuffy met you there and showed you around. I am sure he sensed your presence and ran free with you and became fast friends and brothers with you.

I will never ever forget you, Brave. Your body may not be with me but your spirit lives within my heart. I hope you know that I did what I felt your eyes were telling me and wanted peace for you.

I love you forever and always, my Braveheart.
Your Mommy, Melissa

Brave was such a lucky boy to find you in his final months. His life was not fair nor easy but he had so much love in his time with you. I'm so glad that he could pass where he felt comfortable and in such a peaceful way <3Rachel Klickman - August 7, 2020
Bravery’s life will be remembered by cool shower tile and a come from behind story. Born into a rough start he persevered to find joy and love. His days of pain long behind him just like this day will soon be for those who knew him.

When you find yourself jolted awake by warm feet on a cold floor in know brave is happy.
