Our little girl (who passed away November 2016) got out one night before she was fixed. She partied with a Mastiff that my neighbor had. About 2 months later, in October 2006 My wife delivered 2 beautiful baby boys and a baby girl. We obviously kept them for a little while until they were walking, healthy, and ready for a new home. We found 2 of them very good homes. Of course we played with all 3 of them every night. The first two we gave to their new families the pups were excited, playful, and tails wagging. At the time I will admit I didnt want too, but we kept this little brown and white cutie pie. From that day until a couple hours ago we were inseparable. I hated being away from him and he hated being away from me. He was literally my shadow. I couldn't go anywhere in or outside my house without him 1 foot behind or next to me. I know a lot of people say their dogs were the perfect dog. I honestly didnt look at him as a dog because he never acted like one. He didnt bark, you could leave food on the table and walk away and it would still be there when you got back. The only time he would bark, howl, or cry is when he was away from me. For 12 years he was my rock, my best friend, my angel on earth. I have had other animals that I loved a lot, but I really looked at Ace as a son. I took him to the vet on Friday September 14th because the night before he was acting like his back leg was hurting him and his hip was really swollen. Turns out it was a tumor and bone cancer. They put him on pain meds and I had another week with my baby boy. A day or so ago I noticed the pain medicine really wasn't working that well. By the time I got him to the vet today my baby was in a lot of pain. I laid on the floor kissing and loving on him. Telling him what a good boy he was and thanking him for 12 years of u conditional love and support. I have been through several losses in those 12 years and he was the only constant that was always there with unconditional love. I was literally with my boy from his first steps to his last breath. Go run again now my sweet baby Ace! Daddy loved you so much and I cant wait until you are in my arms again!|
9-30-18: So it's been 10 days. Acer, I miss you as much today as I did 10 minutes after you were gone. Every day without you I have been like a zombie. It's so hard to keep up my daily routine without seeing you in the morning before work and every day when I get home. I can't stand to sit and watch TV without you snuggled up against me. You definitely took my heart with you when you left my baby boy. I can't wait to see you again one day! I'm not wanting to cut this life short, but when this life is over, I can't wait to see you running toward me and we cross the bridge together. Daddy misses you more than you possibly imagine my little angel. I love you baby!
