In loving memory of our Boris Karloff Cauthen who we love so much. Boris Karloff Cauthen will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever.
i saw Boris for the first time at the Jax Humane society. he caught my eye due to his unusul looks despite the fact that we were there for another dog. when that adoption fell through, i asked my husband to go back and check on him. he sid he had been dopted, which he had, but Jack never actually sked. s we went back looking for another dog.
Boris was there waiting for me. it turned out he had been adopted, but the woman had brought him back the next day because she couldn't afford him. so the little basset chow mix with the crooked leg came home with us that day and stayed with us for the next twelve years.
he affected me more than i had realized until he was gone. he was always there, sitting by the door waiting for me when i got home, waiting in the bedroom for me to get up, even sitting by my side when i meditated and lying on my mat when i was doing yoga.
the morning he died, i felt soemthing was wrong with him. he wouldn't get up to get his food like usual, or follow me out from the bedroom. we tried to get him to stand, but figured mybe he was just tired. after we went to the living room, he came trotting out, a smile on his face. he lid down by the back door then and didn't get back up.
i hugged him, told him i loved him, told him to be a good boy then went off to work after arranging forsomeone to check in on him, thinking he was sick.
he passed sometime tht morning before my brother-in-klaw could check on him. i hope he knows how much i loved him, how much we all loved him.
i can't imagine how life will be without him and i never want to think about what my life would have been if i had never found him.
