Lil Bear
11/9/2019 - 10/4/2019On Friday morning we said goodbye to our beloved little handsome angel, Lil Bear, about a month before his 19th Birthday. He was the toughest little 5 1/2 lb dog you’ve ever met and really proved that over the last 6 months - he had the strongest heart. Lil Bear was unique and the perfect combination of spunky and sweet. He collected fans everywhere we went. We miss you buddy - the house is really empty without you here.

Lil Bear came into James’s life on Christmas morning, stuffed in a stocking, when James was 14. He was a regular at all of his high school soccer and baseball games. They had a special bond and were Best Friends for 18 years.

I met Lil Bear when he was 9 and it took a little while for us to warm up to each other. He wasn’t a huge fan of strangers and I wasn’t a fan of tiny dogs - but he won me over, just like he has done with countless others. After that we were inseparable. Lil Bear was my favorite thing and my happy thought on a hard day. He taught me to live in the moment, enjoy every second I had with him, and being with him relaxed me after a stressful day. I felt so grateful and lucky everyday that he was mine.

These last few months/ weeks/ days have been painful and challenging but we would do it all over again to bottle up the happiness he gave us. My heart goes out to everyone who has to make this kind of decision. Thank you to my best friend and amazing vet @chelleb610 and @lapofloveveterinaryhospice for all your help and guidance during this time. “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” —Winnie-the-Pooh
