Bing at the age of 15 yrs old was the last survivor of a family came up from Texas in 2006. Dad Ringo, mom Katie, aunt Xena, and sister Hope. Bing was born deaf but that never stopped him from being one of the gang.
He did everything he wanted to do. Being deaf never held him back. But always felt safe and protected by his family. I guess I always felt over protected of him and always kept him close. He was very special too me. He knew alittle sign language and always made eye contact with me. Could never do no wrong. Always smiling and eager to please everyone. A true moma's boy.
Always grab attention from people because of his beautiful blue eyes. He was named after Bing Crosby and his sister after Bob Hope. As Bing got older and his parents and aunt passed away he relied on his sister more and more. Where there was one, there was the other. About a year ago he started slowing down some due to arthritis in his front legs but his heart was so big he just wanted to be with me and followed me everywhere. He was my boy.
When his sister passed away in October 2018 I was terrified what to do. He's never been without a family member his entire life. But he seemed to get through her passing ok. His eye sight was starting to fail; his body was slowing him down. But full of life and a happy dog and wasnt ready to give up. Not letting his age stop him. So I adopted another dog for a companion to Bing especially when I was at work. Even though it was for a short time I think Bing appreciated having another friend with him.
Hardest decision I had to make happened 5 months after Hope passed away. Bings body just couldn't do what his heart wanted too anymore. Even though he has never cried out in pain I could see he wasnt happy anymore. He tried to hide it because he didn't want me to worry about him. But I knew the time had come to let my boy go to the rainbow bridge and be with his family. Although I didn't see it in his eyes, but I could feel it in his heart. He didn't want to leave me as much as I didn't want to let him go but I know I will be with him again someday. At least now he can hear me when I talk to him. And he knows how much I miss and love him. And he loved me unconditionally.
