Elvis
8/13/2010 - 12/14/2015Dear Elvis, I never imagined how abruptly life can change by having you taken away from us so soon by ugly osteosarcoma cancer only at 5 years old. I wish we could prepare, I wish we found out sooner, but since you always loved to make me and your Uncle Walt so happy, you kept it inside of that rib cage until you could no longer hide it. It is truly a blessing that all went down so fast, so you did not have to suffer. It was killing me to see you not being your happy energetic self. If I could have, I would rather die and let you live, that is how much you meant to me my Baby Boy, but life does not offer us that option. I will never forget 15Dec 2015 when you took your last breath here on Earth, in my lap at home. There will never be another one like you and please know, that everyone remembers you as the biggest ears, kind, happy, best Frisbee catcher, loving pup as you always have been. We miss you everyday and I know we will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge when it's time. They say "the journey of life is sweeter when traveled with a dog". It was even sweater and more special with you Elvis, even for such a short time, as you gave us so much love and brought so much happiness and I always thought we will live like this forever. Have fun up there until we meet again.

Love Mommy and Uncle Walt

Sure miss you booger, thank you for letting me be part of your life and sorry for taking your mommy away from you that much, thought we all had so much more time together, so unfair and I just don't understandHugs.
Great to know you're looking down on us and giving direction and support so we can make best decisions and rescue more doggies even though none could ever replace you, you will never be equaled or forgotten.
Saying what turned out to be our final goodbye was toughest of my life but you being the bestest booger despite pain came out to kiss me goodbye, I feel so blessed to have known such an amazing doggie as you even for too short a time.
Sorry but I'm going to try and keep your mommy healthy and happy down here for a long long time but we'll all stay connected and at some point should I be good enough to become your frisbee minion I'll be so happy to be with you again :)
Hugs,

Elvis and I were companions from the beginning. We started our days together early and we explored so many things together in SoCal. Doggy park and frisbee were a must - just to get the day started. And when the day came to an end, he would always allow me to have a "little part" of my own bed to sleep in at night ;)
Trying to type a tribute to him with tears streaming down my face is so difficult. I lost a piece of my heart the day that he left us.....and the hole will always be there. We were fortunate to have his love for as long as we did; but having him torn from us at such a young age was impossible to understand. I'm sure that God was watching over him and decided that He had a greater need for Elvis in Doggy Heaven. That is how I can live with having lost a piece of my heart - knowing that he is serving a greater need for God. He was the one and only - Elvis.
Until we meet again Buddy, all my love, Uncle Walt.
