Dear Boy

January 2, 2018

15 years ago, Santa supplied my three with a puppy for Christmas.I can still hear their giggles in the back seat of the car, as we drove him home.

Most dogs are good.

Some dogs are great.

Snickers was the greatest of the great at loving us.…and as much as we might have given him…He gave us so much more…


We’ve known this time was coming……the kids have grown up, while he has grown old. We’ll miss our dear boy fiercely and the history we have shared.

My tears are streaming.

Loved by a Labrador.

Rest In Peace Dear Boy,

Thank you for loving us so well.

    So sorry, Ellen. It seems so many of us have been through this recently — it just never gets any easier. Luckily you’ll have wonderful memories to keep him alive in all your hearts and in time the grief does soften. But it sure hurts.

    So sorry Ellen. Having just lost our sweet girl of 14 a few weeks ago, I totally understand the hole it leaves in your heart!! ❤️

    • It does indeed. Keep looking for him…
      Thanks friend.

    So sorry for your loss, but happy Snickers has given you all so many years of love! BTW, I’m trying out the paint edging trick with some trim painting I’m doing for my son on his newly his, old home. Happy New Year to you and Pat. We’re sending love and hugs! Love, Stacy

    • Sweet to hear from you, Thank you so much. Good luck and happy New Year to you all!
