We wanted to update this post a little to include the beautiful graphic Alasandra made out of Beau's picture:
And to include a link to a video starring Beau. He is the first and the last doggie roaching in the grass to the Chicken Dance song. It always makes my mom smile:
This is our Beautiful Beau. He had to be put to sleep today.
This year is already starting out bad for us.
We don't understand what happened.
He was going to have his teeth cleaned, some removed.
But, instead, we found out he had prostate
cancer--even though he had been snipped long ago.
It hit his kidneys in just days.
This is me & Beau snorting around the yard.
Beau must have found something good.
He was born in our house on Labor Day 1999. My mom had taken in a pregnant girl who had 5 boys. From that litter my mom kept two--Beau and Mighty Bitey plus the mama she named Baby.
Beau was only 12. We don't understand why this had to happen and it happened so fast. We are sort of stunned right now.
Beau was a quiet boy, always sweet and happy. We are really going to miss you, Beau-Beau.
Run free, sweet doggie boy.
