Bogey
2/20/2001 - 12/10/2016On December 10, after 16 years, we lost our precious baby, Bogey. He was loving, playful, smart and most importantly, he was the fifth member of our family. He lived a long and fulfilling life and we are so incredibly blessed to have had so much time with such a sweet boy.
We still remember adopting him from a farm in Stantonsburg, North Carolina. We went to pick out a puppy from the litter and were torn between Bogey and his brother. But we chose B, because his brother peed on us and that was, in our eyes, fate working its magic.
Since bringing him home, Bogey has lived in 3 different homes, visited many different places, rode in cars, boats, planes and golf carts, given upwards of one million sweet kisses, chewed up hundreds of water bottles, and been unconditionally loved.
We cannot imagine growing up with a different family pet. Letting him go was the hardest decision we as a family have ever had to make, but we know that we made the right choice. Bogey was suffering from cancer and a skin infection for months leading up to his death and we are comforted by the fact that he is now at peace and waiting for us all at the rainbow bridge.
We are so grateful to Lap of Love for making the best scenario out of a tough situation.
