Rest Well Brutus

We lost our flashy brindle boxer in November.  He was the absolute best dog in the world.  We got him at 9 weeks old and he was 12 when he passed.  He was fine one day and normal.  The next day he had a hard time walking (did have a little old age in the back legs), but this was very different.  He didn't want to eat or drink even if I held it for him.  He sat with me for about two hours with his head in my lap.  He did come to his bed and about 3am started yelping.  I had my husband put him in the car so I could take him to the vet.  He died before I could get him there.  We have another boxer, flashy fawn, named Dusty.  We have had him a couple of years.  We didn't want a replacement dog so we got him early.  He had a time of mourning as well.  All in all our lives were blessed by Brutus being in them. He was our protector and precious family member.  He will never be forgotten.  We loved him so much.  Thank you for letting me talk about it.  It still hurts, but talking helps.

So sorry for your loss. I'm glad you had 12 years to spend with Brutus, although the time we get with them is never long enough. Brutus sounded like a wonderful boy. Run free sweet boy.

RIP Brutus, run free!
I'm so sorry for your loss.  I've been there and done that too.  There will come a day when you can think of him and actually smile instead of feeling so sad inside.
