Our Boy, Bear

Guest TLCM

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


It's been a while since I visited here, but we wanted to let everyone know that we lost our boy on Thursday. He was 12

years 7 months young. I can't even begin to say how much we miss him and how badly it hurts to not see him in his favorite spots. :brokenheart


Bear was such an overcomer. In the fall of 2005 he had gone into distress and an x-ray showed that his spleen was enlarged. When they went in to remove it, they found an 8 1/2 pound tumor attached to it that had ruptured and was bleeding into his stomach. They removed it, that tumor tested benign, and our vets started calling Bear "the miracle dog." We knew that God had saved his life and given us more special time with him.


My daughter said that if Bear had a favorite song it would have been TobyMac's "Made To Love"."I was made to love you, I was made just for you, Made to adore you, I was made to love, and be loved by you."


That song describes him perfectly. No matter how much love we poured into him, he would pour back even more. He was happy, funny, sweet, beautiful...our special boy.


I'll try to post one of our favorite pictures of Bear here. This is the look that met me a thousand times as I would come down the hall.


Our heartfelt thanks go out to David Wolf and Gay Latimer of NGAP for entrusting Bear to us. We loved him dearly, and he returned that love many, many times over.


Tom, Lori, Chloe, and Minnie Moore (always loved and will never be

forgotten, our boy Bear, 9/7/95-4/3/08) :f_red
