With deepest sadness I wanted to share that Boo passed away in his sleep early this morning and has left us to join his best friend, Buddy. Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort. We know that Buddy was the first to greet him on the other side of that rainbow bridge, and this is likely the most excited either of them have been in a long time.
Since starting Boo’s FB page, I’ve received so many notes over the years from people sharing stories of how Boo brightened their days and helped bring a little light to their lives during difficult times. And that was really the purpose of all this...Boo brought joy to people all over the world. Boo is the happiest dog I’ve ever met. He was so easy going that we never had to bother with training. He made the manliest of men squeal with delight over his cuteness and made everyone laugh with his quirky, tail wagging personality.
Over the years Boo met some super cool people, a lot of crazy talented people, but most of all so many kind people...friends who gave him endless love, people who prioritized his comfort over getting that perfect picture, partners who understood that Buddy ALWAYS had to be included, and last but definitely not least, the amazing doctors, therapists, and staff at Adobe Animal Hospital and Sage Veterinary Centers for the countless hours of care and dedication they poured into Buddy and Boo.
I brought Boo home in the spring of 2006 and so started the greatest, most heartwarming friendship of all time. Shortly after Buddy died, Boo showed signs of heart issues. We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us. He hung on and gave us over a year. But it looks like it was his time, and I’m sure it was a most joyous moment for them when they saw each other in heaven.
Boo, we love you with all our hearts and will miss you until the day we meet again. Have fun running around with Buddy and creating adorable mischief wherever you guys go.
Thank you to all of you for following along on their silly adventures over the past 10 years. They sure had a LOT of fun.
instagram caption: starting the new year off with a cozy group nap! 🤗 what’s actually happening: human bought bluebeary a new bed because we keep stealing them from him and he was loving it for about 12 seconds until benny and i came along, and he walked away shortly after this photo was taken mumbling “not again” under his breath. ☹️
a little late in the day to post this, but here is my 9 from 2018! looks like my friendship with buddy will always be an eternal fan fav ❤️. thank you to everyone for all your love and for the abundance of positivity that you bring here in a time when social media often brings out so much ugliness. i am always reminded through all of you that there is always more good than bad, more love than hate, more hope than fear. cheers to everyone and sending out wishes for a most wonderful 2019!!! love from the entire boo family ❤️❤️❤️
wishing everyone the merriest of holidays ❤️❤️❤️ i know for some the holidays can be a painful reminder of those no longer with us ... sending warmest wishes of healing, warmth, and love to all and a year ahead full of new joyful memories.
holidays can be hard for our furry friends still waiting for their forever homes. remember @pawschicago? we donated last year in my best Buddy’s honor to Chicago’s largest no-kill shelter. if you have a moment check out their amazon holiday wishlist and brighten up a furry friend’s day! we spent a solid 45 minutes going through it last night trying to check off some of their highest priority items. and by we, i mean human while i provided moral support ... in my sleep. link is in my profile! ❤️🎅🤶🐶
few years ago, NOT around christmas when i was wondering when the humans would get around to taking down the tree. we’ve had our hanging santa advent calendar hanging in our kitchen for the past 13 months. he’s become a permanent fixture in our home decor.
