Goodbye, My Sweet Friend

This is Boysingly.  My little (well, he was far from little … he was 20 lbs in fact) friend for over 15 years.  He had a stroke this past Thanksgiving and I had to put him to sleep.  It was really, really hard.  I still think of him.  And I still hear him pitter pattering about the house and I forget that he’s no longer here.  He was given to me just shortly after I moved to Brooklyn, and now, here I am, leaving Brooklyn, without him.  I didn’t plan it that way.  I planned to take him with me.  But I guess he wanted to stay in Brooklyn.  He didn’t want to leave his home.   boysie-says-hi3.JPG
