From the day I saw you in the pet store window teasing the other puppies I knew that you were a Spunky. You touched our lives for 12 years, you were like a child to us. Our world revolved around you. We didn't make a decision without wondering about you. You & daddy had those special long walks together especially in the summer. Daddy made paths for you in the yard to walk during the winter too. It took us 8 years to find a house on LBI that allowed us to take you on vacation with us because we know you liked the kennel but we always wanted you with us. This summer daddy took you out in the bay swimming for the first time & boy did you love cooling off on a hot day! When I would come back from the beach there you were with your head peaking through the railing & wagging your tail and barking so happy to see me. When we came home from work there was always that familiar bark & lots of kisses always with yellow dog you would come running. How you would pretend to be asleep when daddy would come to bed & then wake up really fast & pretend to "attack" & then it was off to sleep between us next to your kitty brothers & sisters who also miss you so much. The days & nights are lonely for all of us without you! We will love you always & forever!|
All our Love, Mommy, Daddy, Mercedes & Capicola
