Memories of Spanky Johnson
Spanky, You will be dearly missed. Mom and I enjoyed all the road trips we all took together. You were there for me after my motorcycle accident, helping me to heal. Mom and I will miss hugging and kissing you. You were a good listener. I hope you meet Boo Bear, and all your feline friends. Now you are free to run and play, without your heart failing you. You will never be forgotten. Mom and I look forward to seeing you again at the Rainbow Bridge.

01/12/2015: Spanky it has been a week since you passed on. Mom and I really miss you. I had a dream about you last night. You were happy and frolicking around,just like in the old days. There is an empty feeling in my heart, I wish I could hold and hug you. Mom and I think back on our happy memories with you and smile. Love Dad.

01/19/2015: Spanky, it has been 2 weeks since you passed on. You are in our thoughts daily. I am starting to see you out of the corner of my eyes, every once and awhile. Mom and I miss you. As you already know, we are looking at getting a female standard schnauzer puppy. I think you would approve of her. You probably are thinking, why didn't we get her while you were with us, as a playmate.We reflect on your life with us with a smile on our faces. You will never be forgotten. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. You will be forever loved.

01/26/2015 Spanky, It has been three weeks since you have passed. There is still an empty spot in my heart, yearning to hold and hug you. You were so special. Mom and I really miss you. You were so interwoven in our daily lives. I hope you have made a lot of new friends at the Rainbow Bridge. Love Mom and Dad.

02/03/2015 Spanky, It has been four weeks since you have passed. It seems like yesterday that I held you while you passed. My heart still mourns your passing. I used to enjoy brushing you and talking to you. You were a good listener. I think about last summer and the picnics mom and I took you on. Throughout your life we had a lot of fun adventures together. Mr. Quackers (our Duck) misses you. He enjoyed giving you soft pecks on your nose. He looks for you every time he hears the door opens.

02/09/2015 Spanky, It has been five weeks. This last weekend was warm enough that if you were still among us, we could of had a nice walk. Our walks were a special time for us. You always did like to strut your stuff. You loved being made over, by people we came across in our journeys. By now you have probably met a Boston Terrier by the name of Junkie Monkey. She is probably looking for her mother. J.M passed on 2/1/15, her mother back in June. She most likely died of a broken heart. She started going downhill after she lost her mom. Take care My Spanky boy, Mom and Dad Love you.

02/16/15 Spanky, It has been six weeks, since you left us. As you know we picked up Bridgit yesterday. She has been checking out some of your special spots. She acts like she can see you at times. Are you her guardian Dog angel? I could sense you looking after us. As always, Mom and I love you, and miss you.

I hope you have made a lot of friends at the Rainbow Bridge. Mom and I love you.

You were a real faithful companion. Well until next week, I will let you go and play with your friends at the Rainbow Bridge. Take care little buddy Mom and Dad Love you.

3/25/15 My Dear Spanky, I think about you daily. Bridgit is getting ready to start her classes. I remember how you were the star of the class.

Bridgit has the same energy level you had.When I give Bridgit a hug, I am giving you a hug also.Take care Spanky, I love you.

4/4/15 My Dear Spanky, Well it is Easter, and you are still in my daily thoughts. My heart still mourns you. When I see Bridgit do certain things, It brings back memories of when You were her age. I have noticed that when I put Bridgit in her crate for the night, and I put her toys away, come the next morning, some of her toys have been moved to the center of the room. Do you come and visit her ? Take care little Buddy. Mom and Dad Love you, and miss you very much.

Bridgit is 4 now and still rowdy and playful. I miss how you and I would just chill out and watch TV together. You were a laid back gentleman, and Bridgit wants to conquer the world. I am glad you both are different. I love you both. Say hi to mom. Love your daddy.

01-05-2022 Dearest Spanky, It has been seven years, since you passed. It feels like it happened today. You were a very special ❤ boy. I miss you and mom both. I wish you could have played with Bridgit. She plays rough but is full of love. You loved to play also, but were more laid back. We both chilled like a couple of old guys. Time isn't kind to any of us. I am also feeling my age now. Bridgit keeps me going, but she is slightly slowing down now that she is seven. I remember our last holidays together. You put up a great effort to be your best,until the very end. Bridgit and I send our love.
01/05/23 Dear Spanky, I still think of you a lot. I had misplaced my confirmation number, that is why I haven't written for a while. Bridgit is eight now.She is still a sweet rowdy girl. I remember how laid back and chill you were. You both are special 💕 for your own personalities. I truly wish you could have met her when you were still alive. She would have snuggled with you after playing. You have not been forgotten. Love Dad and Bridgit.
