So hard to say good-bye

Yesterday was a very bittersweet day. We were celebrating Father's Day which was a lot of fun, especially since it was Mike's first. But it was also a very sad day because we had to say goodbye to our Pudgey Bear. Pudge has been a part of our lives for the past 16 years and he has given us a million & one wonderful memories and smiles. He is the BEST dog in the world & he will NEVER be forgotten; no other dog could ever replace Pudge since he is one of a kind. Pudge will be going to Heaven today where he will again be a young puppy, able to run around and tear up paper like he has always loved to do. I know he'll be watching down on our family, knowing that he will always be in our hearts and memories. It was so heartbreaking to say goodbye for the last time, but we all knew that this was the right thing to do. We know that he'll be making many people happy in Heaven & he'll be sitting beside my grandpa like he always used to. I love you so much Pudge!

I know Cameron won't remember you but we will all share your stories and pictures with him. Our hearts are broken right now, but we are happy that you will be in a better place with no pain or discomfort. Tears stream down my face as I write this, but my heart is at peace knowing that we gave you the best life you could have been given & you gave us so much happiness and love in return. Goodbye for now, Pudge, we love you with all our hearts.

Last chance to cuddle

We will miss you SO much

The brothers & sisters

Love you, Pudgey Bear!
