As we sit here writing this, tears pouring down our face, we would give anything to have you back even for one more day. But that would be selfish, we never wanted you to suffer. So we did the unselfish thing and we let you go to run free. You lived a great fifteen years, lived like a King. Before we said our goodbyes we had twelve hours to enjoy with you, to give you all we had. To laugh, to cry, to hold you, to feed you anything you wanted, and boy did you love to eat!! We even gave you a bath that day. It wasn't your favorite, and we knew your body was getting tired. But we wanted to make sure you looked your best when you got to puppy heaven!

You brought so much joy to our family from the very first day we brought you home fifteen years ago. You touched a lot of hearts along the way. At the park the kids used to come and say, "can we pet him, he's cute!". And how you loved to take long walks with your daddy at the park. Sometimes I had to yell at daddy and tell him that he's going to far, but you wanted to keep going. You loved to help daddy with yard work by watching him and we knew who was really in charge. Daddy would send me pictures titled "the foreman is in charge". We knew who was the boss of the house, and we wouldn't have it any other way. How you used to sit in the window when the boys were little and wait for the school bus every afternoon. It was like clockwork. You had so much fun chasing them and their friends around the pool until you were exhausted. The memories we have of you are priceless. You have beds in every room of the house but you loved to sleep with the boys in their beds. Then they went off to college and you started to sleep in mommy's bed. I would say "let's go night night in the big boy bed" and you would sleep so peacefully. I would often listen to you snore. A few nights before you left us I videoed you in your natural state. You slept so calm and you were at peace. Could I have known that we would lose you two days later? We can be at ease knowing that you are running around and chasing all those bunnies and deer in Heaven and eating all that yummy pasta and chicken. And when you put your head down at night in your big boy bed wrapped in your Snuggie and with your football that daddy sent with you, we are at ease knowing you are resting well.

Until we are able to hold you again and get tons and tons of puppy kisses and you rest your head on our shoulder which was your favorite thing to do, know there will not be a day that goes by that we will not think of you. We will always love you sweet angel XXOO Mommy, Daddy, Mikey, Juju
