      Run Free BJ

      We met BJ and his people while walking through the neighborhood when Sophie was about 6 months old. He was about 11 years old, and had just had a battle with some type of cancer, and was recovering well. To say Sophie was smitten wit BJ would be an understatement. She loved him. As soon as she'd see him she would go into a full body wag until she got to him, and she'd rub against him and sniff and was just so happy. While on our daily walks Sophie would look for BJ at certain points, know which way he'd be coming from. About a year ago BJ started to deteriorate to the point walks were no longer practical for him. Yesterday his people made the tough decision to set him free. He was 14 1/2 years old.

      Even though Sophie hasn't seen him in a while, she still looks for him on every walk.

      It's easy to see why Sophie was smitten with BJ. Very sorry for the loss of this handsome guy.

      So sorry for your neighbor's, yours and Sophie's loss. Such a sweet looking pup. I think the picture of BJ and Sophie would be a beautiful memory gift.

      Rest In Peace BJ

      I ordered a memorial stone and I'm looking for a frame that will hold both of the above pics. BJ was really one of the sweetest dogs, and his people are great too. So sad right now.
