Baloo...our beloved golden who has blessed us with 12 and a half wonderful years! I can still remember the day we got you....an 8 week old adorable fluffy ball of fur with those loving eyes. My niece who was 3 at the time took one look and said "can we name him Baloo?" We do not have kids and I said" what kind of name is that?"...she said the fluffy big cute bear in the Jungle Book...and that is how he was named. The name is so fitting...Baloo...the most gentle,loving boy...our boy...the best! Baloo has some nicknames too...Balooby, Balooster, Nudgy, and Sidewinder!!! I want to write about why you have those nicknames but it is just too hard right now...I wish we had another 12 years of you being here with us....my heart has broken in two.|
I cannot wait to get to Rainbow bridge. I know you are there swimming in a pond and rolling around in the green grass afterwards. Maybe there are some fish you can catch and give a lick before you release it. It is not the same fishing without you....nor is it the same swimming in "your" pool...our lives have a big empty hole in it.
We love you Baloo and miss you terribly....there will never be another like you.
Mom & Dad
8/24/11 HAPPY BIRTHDAY BALOO!!! You would have been 13 today. I miss you with all my heart which is broken in two since you left us. I think about you every single day and the hurt is still so raw....as raw as the day you passed to the Rainbow Bridge....even after 5 months and 3 weeks. You are so very special...the most special dog I will ever ever have!!! We love you sooo much and cannot wait til the day we meet again at Rainbow Bridge....hugs...kisses and lots of pettins!!
3/15/12 Today marks a year you have been gone from our lives. We are so heartbroken. Baloo you can never be replaced in our hearts.
8/24/12 Another birthday you should have had here with us....you would have been 14!! I feel we should have had more than the 12 1/2 years with you!!!! My heart is still broken in two. I think about you everyday and for some reason lately I have been crying so much over losing you. Baby Mako is growing up so fast...he finally loves your pool although he hasn't jumped in like you loved to do. Mako's surgery went well and hopefully he won't have any problems later on....I know you will watch over him....in some ways he is so much like you and I hope he can become half the dog you were!
8/24/13 My birthday boy.....oh how I miss you. Actually all who had the honor of knowing you miss you too!!!! We always reminisce about how you were such a good boy.....Mako is in his terrible 2's and we cannot ever remember you being this way....EVER. Max has joined our family and he reminds me of you in so many ways...he is a good ole boy and just had a tumor removed....we are praying it is not cancer.... I hope you met Mike when he left us to be in heaven....he loved you too.
I love you Balooby.......forever and ever.
