One Year Later, A Short Memoir

What ever was I doing to you Billy? Should I have offered you a rum and coke perhaps?

I remember I took this in a completely dark bedroom.

One of the very last photos I ever took of Billy

He looks as if he is in awe of something here. His Christmas toy perhaps?

Billy was always looking at me as if he was trying to figure me out! LOL, Nobody, not man nor beast has done that yet Billy!

It has been exactly one year, since our Billy went over the Rainbow Bridge.  I still think of you so much Billy. Sometimes, I even say your name, when I call out to Miss Mindy. After 13 1/2 years with you, it is hard to change some of my habits. I often gaze at the painting of you, or the photo in the living room, and wonder what you are up to. I suppose you are just running around where you are,  basking in the sun, sleeping in the rain, cuddling in a blanket during a snowstorm. Just waiting............... till you see me again.
I love you Billy, and I miss you very much!
Love, hugs, and special puppy dog kisses,

Oh my goodness Ms. Gloria mom and I have moist eyes. We loved Billy so much and always looked forward to his opinion on what was going on at your house. Billy was such a handsome gentleman with a heart so big he loved everyone. We feel privileged to have known him.
God Bless you all and Billy run free and keep the giant dogs in line.
Hugs Madi and Mom your BFFF

I'm so sorry for your loss. He looks like a wonderful friend. I wish I had been able to know him.

What a lovely tribute to Billy. I didn't know Billy but I'm sure he was the best. I understand calling Miss Mindy, Billy. I still call Fred Barney lots of times too!

With tears running down my cheeks, Gloria, I sure hope Billy is with Raider, playing in some cool lush grass across the bridge!
Funny how they leave their paw prints on our hearts.
We will never forget them!
Hugs, Kathy

Oh what a handsome little fella Billy was, such a sweet face. My Samantha died after having her for 14 1/2 years in 2005. I still think of her everyday. I call Mona Samantha a lot without even thinking about it. Everybody at work says I call Mona Samantha so much that they just don't say anything about it anymore. Bet he's a the bridge right now playing with my Samantha, she loved little dogs....Sarah, the Mommy.

Miss Mindy! If ya won't go surf boarding with me, how about a little skinny dipping in the ocean. I'd take care of you.....Weenie
