RIP Beau Beau. You gave your humans more love and joy than you could ever imagine. You were brought into our lives when we needed you most and our life was forever changed for the better. You taught your human Mommy unconditional love, faith and trust in the universe, kept her on her toes, and helped her find a way for creative expression through this blog and photography. You were Daddy's 5AM or sometimes 4AM alarm clock. You gave him a way to show his love of routine and comfort and caregiving through feeding you and taking care of you like the wonderful father that he is. You were here for our wedding and brought our family together. You watched watched your human sister go from HS to College girl to worker girl. You brought us all love. We will miss you terribly. And now because of our loving memories and this blog we can go back and look look at the funny, crazy, loving journey you enjoyed during your life with us. In my heart I know I will see you again when we all cross the rainbow bridge.
Here's how it started. "I was a Mommy's boy and a Daddy's boy too. Daddy is the one who picked me out at the Meriden CT Humane Society. I was only six-months old. When the humans came into the room that my cage was in, Daddy looked at me and gasped! He said he loved the way I looked. They got me out of my cage and held me and I just sat in their arms nice and quiet like. That seemed to be the charm and they took me to my forever home that day."
Baby Beau Beau. Look how big his ears are compared to his body.
Loving his Sisfur, Angie
Our morning routine was for me to walk him to the kitchen with him over my shoulder.
Enjoying his time with his Daddy.
