My little boy Winston (Bubba)

Winston & Stitch
Today September 3, 2012 is officially the saddest, most heartbreaking day of my life! As some of you know and can tell from my pic that there was a sad loss in my life. My little boy Winston entered into a place where there is no more pain and suffering from the cold cruel world we live in.
He was a tough and strong little guy, never sick, never a moment when he wasn't bright and happy and loving to all who met him! This little dog was the healthiest happiest dog I have ever seen until the last 2 months of his life when he came down sick with cushing disease and also lost his eyesight. Still to this day the Veterinarian are unsure of what happened and why. He still fought to the end though there were many days when all I could do is lay with him and hold him in my arms making sure he always knew he was loved and taken care of before anyone or anything in the world!
This morning while I was holding him at the emergency vet clinic, even at the very last moment while the injections went in he fought back just a little until the angels came and swept his soul away to a better place where I was left standing in tears and heartache with a lifeless little body! I told him I knew it was time and that I understood he needed to go and told him that he will be loved and remembered forever in my heart and he was the best most amazing little dog I have ever seen!
This is my dedication to my little boy Sir Winston Bubba of Kansa-Braska. He was born on Aug 27, 2003 a day before his dad's bday and passed on today Sept 3, 2012, that is 9 years of life and memories and happiness that he gave to me and anyone that came in his life that I will never forget or be able to have again!
From the moments watching TV together when he saw another dog come on he would jump up and grab his toy and try to get the dogs to play with him to the memories of his first stuffed toy Stitch(Lilo & Stitch) that he carried and cherished like no other toy, if anyone came over he would run to hide Stitch so no one would get him all the while he was whining with him in his mouth, he would find the perfect hiding place though to us it was still in plain sight! then the times where he went every where I went even in the hottest of the summer he would be in the truck protecting it with the A/C running to keep him cool.
My life will never ever be the same without you Winston, though I will fight to go on with my life without you physically here, you will always be in my heart and soul and one day when that time is meant, we will be together again! I love and miss you my amazing little man! May you rest in peace and happiness and always see how much I love you with everything I am! You are my eternal happiness above anything else! <3
