Billy. So much more than a name. So much more than just a dog. He was larger than life. So much larger than his tiny 6-pound Chihuahua body. He had so much personality. He had such an excitement for life. He was curious and brave and always up for an adventure. He loved walks and he was such a bossy boy on those walks, he told you when and where you were going. He made friends everywhere he went, dogs and people alike. He was goofy and silly and loved to play, whether it be with his toys or his food or your hand. He was always there to greet you with endless kisses, sweet little whimpers and a happy puppy smile. He loved to snuggle or just sit next to you. He had so much intuition, he always knew what was going on whether you were happy, sad or mad, he was always there for you. His calm presence was such a comfort.
My goal for Billy's life was to include him in everything and bring him everywhere. I wanted him to have the absolute best life he could have. I'd like to believe I was able to give him that. During his 13 years Billy went on so many adventures, from hiking in the Pacific Northwest to hiking the North Shore of Minnesota. He went on canoe rides, kayak rides, paddle board rides, boat rides, even plane rides back to Seattle when we moved to Minnesota. He went on countless road trips, camping trips and cabin trips. He met everyone I met and knew everyone I knew. Billy loved with me, he lost with me, he went through every single up and down with me, he was always there for me. And when I finally fell in love with the love of my life, Billy fell in love with him too.
We lost our Billy boy suddenly and his loss has left a huge void in our lives. But we are taking comfort in looking back at all of the amazing memories we made with him and we are doing everything we can to honor his memory. We know that so many people loved Billy and will miss him along with us. We hope he knows how much he was loved, how many people's lives he touched and how much he will be missed. We know we will see him again someday, somewhere, over the rainbow.
Some of my very favorite photos of Billy.
Billy, I love you so much more than words could ever describe. I will miss you every single second of every single day. Your loss has changed me so deeply, I will never be the same. My heart has been shattered in to a million pieces, and I don’t know if I can ever put it back together again. But I will be strong, because you loved me, and I will do everything I can to honor your memory and make sure you know how tremendously you were loved. I know you’ll be waiting for me, and I take comfort in knowing I’ll see you again someday. I love you bebe, beebs, meme, pook, baby pook, baby man, tink, peanut.
