This morning (13 May ‘14), I got a message from my Dad saying, Bruce already passed away. I thought I read Drew (our younger labrador) so it did not sink it yet. But when I came to my senses and started to re-read all the message from my Dad and my sister sent me messages too, then slowly begun to dawn on me and suddenly felt a pinch in my heart that our dearest dog, our Bruce was already gone.
He’s not the first dog that we had and left but he’s the one that I really love and always brag about. Some people would be scared at him because of his big built and strong voice there are still many who would stop and check on him because of his adorable face and find him huggable. And he’s the only golden brown lab in our area that’s why he’s very noticeable.
8 years is too short for us to have you. You have been very loyal to us, been through many circumstances, has been with us wherever we go, defending us from bad guys… you’re one such great dog! I wish you could live with us forever.
While hearing the story what happened with you until how you died, I couldn’t help not to cry. I was and am really hurt that you left us too soon and the fact that I am miles and miles away from home I could not see and embrace you.
I just miss you, Bruce! :(
