Goodbye Bosco, I miss you so much ...

This past Monday night by dog Bosco, my best friend, died in his sleep. He was three months away from his 7th birthday and was healthy and happy. His vet suspects an electrical anomaly in this brain or heart caused a fatal heart attack. His death has completely devastated me.

Those of you who know me, and Bosco, know the important role he played in my life. He literally saved my life 4 years ago and was with me at least 23 1/2 out of every 24 hours. He loved to play frisbee and ride the escalators at Macy's in Palo Alto. People would always stop me just so they could admire him. He went virtually everywhere with me. He was amazing in so many ways and I needed him at least as much as he needed me.

It's been three days and I'm only now even able to write about his passing. I know the intense pain that I feel right now will subside with time, but the memories of our time together are strong and vivid and will live with me for the rest of my life.

Goodbye Bosco, I love you and I miss you so much.
