When I was 5 years old, I woke up one morning and there was a tiny black ball of fur cuddling into my neck and staring me in the eyes. This was the day our little girl Princess Baby Boomer changed our lives forever. Right from the start, she was the queen of our home, and wherever she sat, whether it be on the couch, bed or pillow, it was her throne.
The way Pekes are, they find one person that they attach to, and they never leave their side. For Princess Baby Boomer that person was my mom. She loved us all, and she would show us with great big kisses! But, my mom was the one she would follow around, and would cuddle up with on the couch. One of Baby’s favorite pasttimes was eating! She would dance around the table at meal times, and would get on her hind paws and “swim” as we liked to call it. It got to the point where she was so particular she only wanted grilled chicken breasts! This little dog really believed she was royalty, and she certainly let everyone know around her she was a queen!
As Baby got older, we noticed her starting to slow down, although she would still get in her spunky mode when our other dogs would get playful! No matter how old she got, we could still see the puppy in her. Finally, when she was 15, we knew that our time with her was nearing an end. She began having trouble breathing, because of a tumor that was blocking off her
airway. It was heartbreaking to see her struggling to get a breath. It devastated us to imagine our lives without her, but we knew it wasn’t fair to keep her here like that, it was selfish of us. When she would look at us, we knew she was trying to tell us she was ready to go visit her big brother Booker in heaven. On August 6, 2005 she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, and
we know her big brother Booker was waiting for her on the other side.
Baby, we love you and miss you every minute of every day. We can’t wait to see you and Booker again.
Your dad Gary, mom Joan, human sister Katie, doggy sister Daisy, and doggy niece Maggie
