Dearest Colleen,
My heart goes out to you, to Bobo, and your family. He is so blessed to have had you as his constant companion and human. He was given a gift that so many pets out there have not had.. the gift of your amazing love and kindness.
Tomorrow he will go over the Rainbow Bridge, where he will wait until someday, when you two can be together again. He will take with him all the love in his heart that you gave him, and will always live on in yours, and now our hearts from now on.
Thank you so much for sharing your heart and him with us.



I am so sorry to hear Bobo went to Rainbow Bridge, but he's with all the other doggie angels waiting for that day when he sees your smiling face headed for the bridge. I know too well the loss of a fur baby; it is one of the hardest times in life. Bless you, your family and sweet Bobo.

"Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim."

Hi Colleen,
Thinking of Bobo, you and your family. Sending you support & harmony during this time.


So sorry. It is hard with kids. We lost two of our dogs in one year. He looks like such a great guy.

Hi Colleen - my thoughts are definitely with you. I once heard that the biggest gift we can give our pets is unconditional love during their lives and our arms around them at the very end. I am sure he lived a tremendously happy life, and I hope that gives you a little comfort at this sad time.

Hello Collen- how ironic that i came across your blog regarding Bobo. I just lost my dog, Buster yesterday. He was very sick and just tired. Buster was with us for 17 years! He was nothing but pure pleasure.



Colleen- I'm so sorry about your beloved doggy Bobo...I always like to think that our dogs that have passed are frolicking up in doggy heaven and waiting to see us again someday. I actually lost my 13 year old Maltese Murphy last thursday so I can definitely understand what you are going through. Rest in peace Bobo and Murphy

your fellow twitter-er,


I found, as you may find with Bobo, that writing does help heal. Last month our dog of 13 years died. My daughter held her as she was euthnized. Now that was tough! I've put together a guide to coping with death. This was hard on the whole family, including our two other dogs. They are not eating well, and it's been two weeks.
