Sweet Baby - We'll Miss You!
In loving memory of our Eeyore who we love so much.
Eeyore will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever.
I received Eeyore as a 5 week old puppy, we had a bond like no other. He was the most gorgeous puppy I had ever seen with those bright blue eyes and special coloring.
While Eeyore was socialized as a puppy, he turned out to be very overprotective of us. The first time he bit my brother in law, we thought he can be helped and he's just a teenager. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. He bit again.
This led to us having to keep him locked in his room when company was over. We were unable to trust him with anyone for fear of a bite. It was heartbreaking, and no life for him.
He was the sweetest and smartest dog I have ever known. He loved nothing more than to spend time with either or both of us and to play. Throw the ball, throw the stick, throw my favorite toy "Monster".
Sadly, on March 15th we had to put Eeyore down.
The night before my girlfriend wanted to pet him. I put on his muzzle and his leash and let him walk over. She pet him for a few minutes, and than it happened. Something in him just switched and he attempted to attack her. Luckily I was holding his leash besides having the muzzle on, and pulled him back. Immediately he was happy and wagging his tail - he had no idea he was doing anything wrong. We knew something wasn't right in him. It was time. Before he hurt someone else, or got off of his leash and attacked a child.
We awoke the next morning and looked at each other and decided it was the right thing to do. That was one of the hardest days of my life. We spent as much time as we could with him that morning. We fed him cheese and meat, he had never tasted human food before. We played with him because that was his favorite thing to do. And than we got in the car.
I was a blubbery mess, I could barely see to drive. When we got to the vet's office I lost all composure. The wierd thing was, I never turned around.. I never backed down even though my heart was breaking at the moment.
I think it's hard whenever you lose someone or something you love, it's true. I've lost my father and my grandfather at early ages. It's true that time helps heal the pain. The worst part of this for me was that I let myself take blame. Every day I miss him more. I had regrets, although I know now that it really was the right thing to do.
WE LOVE YOU EEYORE!!
We hope you know and understand.
We hope to find you at the Rainbow Bridge
