So long until we see you again, "little boy", "momma's baby", "the tiniest hero".
You were a very good boy and your mom misses you terribly. I do too. Your easy-going shy nature belied your mix of GSD and Beagle. You were a delight to have in our family and you readily accepted Odin, and Frigga into your life as you did me. Acceptance was your watchword. I have seen a dog set an example before and you did so as well. How can one be less than tolerant when you had it so much a part of you for us to see every day?
Did you save your mom that day on the road? We think so. You could've gotten out of the way of that pickup truck but instead you ran into your mom and pushed her off the road. For that you lost your spleen and nearly your life. You never fully recovered and suffered all the years you had left and they were too short. We know that there waits for us at the bridge a pint-sized hero with all the honors due one so brave.
My condolences to you and your family as you grieve through this difficult time. Tell your wife that Billie is still looking out for her from up above. I do believe that honest and true love is eternal. The love between your Billie and your family will always exist, even though it may seem like you are separated from him right now.
