Lil" Bit Waller-my white schnauzer

(Flagstaff, Az, USA)
You came to me one day when my son broke up with his girl friend. I had given him the $600 to buy her the white schnauzer she wanted. Fortunately she couldn't take care of him when they split and she gave him to me. What a blessing. I never new you could love a dog so much as my Lil" Bit.
He would greet me or my wife when we came home and then wait for the other to arrive. After bouncing around and leaping on chairs, he would settle down and lay in his bed in the den always looking at me or my wife lovingly. How do I know lovingly, just look in his eyes and you can read them.
He lived to be 14 and was taken too soon. I know this is a long age for them but he was my best friend and I miss him many times each day. I know it isn't macho for a retired man to cry but I love you boy and now have another friend to greet when heaven calls, Lord willing. You just beat me there. I lost my dear wife 26 years ago and still grieve. Lil" Bit I grieve for you just like her, since you are my sweet boy.
