Louie was one handsome boy! I just lost Brownie on March 5th. I am sure the two of them are getting into all kinds of fun stuff at the Bridge. 

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Im7 so glad you were able to come back and that it felt "right" when you did.  Some come back, some never come back, it's whatever feels "right" at any point and  time.

Please know that, by having the courage to post here will help others to heal thru their grief too. That's a great way to honor him and to allow his legacy to be one that helps others. We all feel in love with Louie.  Such a sweet, sweet Soul....a very loved Soul.    And thank you for posting his pictures too.  Can never have enough of Louie!

All your happy memories will continue to push your grief further and further away.  That's  what Louie wants.  He wants to see you smile as you remember  him.  Afterall, he's up at the Bridge with his tail wagging non-stop bragging about having  the best time evvvver with you!!   All while eating three bacon cheesevurgers 😎

Surrounding you with Louie's eternal  love and light 💖
