Bebe (Jc's Curfew)


Recommended Posts

BeBe was one of those special dogs.... She was one of the ones you only manage to find once in a lifetime if you're lucky, and she almost wasn't ours. BeBe had been on hold down at the kennel for a few months when we absolutely fell in love, it was hard to stop yourself from falling in love with this dog. It was Christmas time 2008 and we told our adoption rep what we wanted for Christmas, and then we found out she was on someone else's Christmas list. However, she had already been on hold for them and they hadn't taken her home yet, they got one option, take her or she's going to one of the best homes ever just in time for Christmas.... Needless to say BeBe was under our Christmas tree on Dec. 20, 2008, just in time for her first Christmas with a family. We quickly learned BeBe was a creature like we'd never seen before... She was a fierce smiler and better yet she'd jump up on your shoulders and give you the biggest bear hug you'd ever received. Special... it's the only word that even begins to describe the most amazing dog that ever walked into our lives, she would collect all the toys in the house (no small feat) and put them on her blanket, and lay down in the middle of them and seemingly say "Hey mom look at me! I got them all!!!", her face lit up like her first Christmas tree. She was attached at hip, she followed us everywhere, had to know what we were doing at all times, once she was satisfied, she'd lay down, if she wasn't satisfied you got a bear hug... The love of her life however was Dallas. Dallas was 10 years old when she came home, she was 3, but age aint nothing but a number they say. She followed him EVERYWHERE, whatever he did, she did, she'd follow him to get a drink of water and she'd follow him sniffing around the house... She'd lay with him (anyone who knows Dallas knows he's gotten a bit grumpy in his old age!) We often wondered if BeBe would be ok when Dallas passed away, what we thought was a growing reality in the coming years, he's going to be 12 this year, and we knew he wouldn't live forever, even if he is Dally Wally King of the Pally (yea don't ask). Our lives were rocked last month, Osteosarcoma reared it's ugly head, but it wasn't our king, our even princess Lizzie the house elders; it was the baby, it wasn't fair, she wasn't even 5 yet... We came to realize that all the knights in King Dallas' army couldn't fight this enemy.... The enemy won yesterday.... She followed him everywhere even until her last day on earth, she was by his side, went with him just to sniff in the yard, and came in to enjoy their last ice cream treat together (Lizzie thinks it's vile, health nut!), until it was time. All of her knights in shinning armor were there, my mom, dad, me and our adoption rep. The vet and tech (two good friends I worked for in highschool) came to her castle, to free her of this enemy. She was loved by all of us, everyone of us was crying, looking at the other and crying some more as we freed her from her pain, she was so brave. By her side you ask? Her King... What we thought was a one sided obsession was a mutual love. He didn't leave, he stood, so she could see him because she was on the bed, he didn't lay down, he stayed, seemingly snout to snout, he loved her... So now we ask the question, how will he live without his princess? One day at a time, just like the rest of us.... This story doesn't have a happily ever after.... But we had the most amazing, special princess that ever walked this earth for a year and 5 months, We lost her at 5 years and 16 days old.... Now she will wait for her King and the rest of her royal court, somewhere over the rainbow.....


We love you BeBe, more than you could ever know.....

It sounds inadequate, but I am so very sorry for your loss. Your tribute was as beautiful as your princess. Has me in tears.

Oh, Kim :(:grouphug My heart breaks for you and your family. You've written one of the most moving tributes I've ever read. I know you're hurting and missing her so much, but it's no mistake that she ended up with you guys. Bebe's such a special hound, and she was in the most amazing home she could have hoped to ever have completely surrounded by endless love. Please give Dallas some extra special and tender hugs from me and the girls. :f_pink :f_pink

Oh Kim! Since BooBoo passed this week all I could think was how we didn't have enough time together- but she was 9. To lose a baby at 5 is beyond my scope of reasoning. Please know that you are in my heart. BooBoo was such a friendly little girl and loved other dogs. I am sure she met Bebe at the gate and they are both running free of pain now.
