Biography

A letter to our beautiful Junior up in heaven.

In 2003 our family was blessed as we adopted you into our family. From the moment we met you, you were the happiest, loving dog a person could know. Walking through the door you greeted us with kisses so plentiful. You were there with us through everything, and loved with a love so unconditional. From playing ball, going on walks and endless cuddles, you were always there with constant love.

We recall the day 5 years ago when you were first diagnosed with your blood disease, how you fought and beat your disease. You showed the world, it wasn't your time to go. Through all the shots, and medicine you would still come home with a smile on your face. Soon enough you became healthy again. And we celebrated, for we got blessed with more time with you. And we are forever thankful for that. Whenever you'd see someone sad, you'd nudge your little nose under our hand to provide comfort. You never failed to be there. You were the fluffiest funniest puppy ever. I say that because even as you aged, you never showed it. You were such an upbeat dog, always ready to play.

As years went by, we knew that one day, your day would come. On February 28th, 2017 we learned your disease had returned. You began taking your medicine again, never failing to since you got hamburger every time it was time to take your pills. Your absolute favorite treat. We were told that we didn't have much time left with you, so we made you as comfortable as possible. But once again you defied the odds. They gave you about a week, but you still had a month and a half left in you. You were the toughest little fighter ever.

Wrapped up, cuddling with Mom and Krystal, you took your final breath, and laid to rest. As you passed we told you how much we all loved you. Mom, Dad, Collin and Krystal all love you so much Junior. We knew it was your time and you had fought with every thing you had. But now you're at peace.

You taught us all the meaning of true and innocent love. You blessed this family with 14 beautiful years. The best puppy dog a family could have. We know you'll always be with us in our hearts. We'll remember you as the smiley, playful, happy Junny we knew and loved. Heaven gained an angel on April 12th, 2017. But we had an angel from the moment we got you, until your last day with us on earth. To our precious babykinz. May you Rest In Peace JunJun. We love you always and forever.

Rainbow Bridge Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
