    Loving and losing a dog: Your tributes

    Our Boz

    Bozley Moochie , the Smooch Mooch Pooch was our everything. From the moment we met him at the breeders, we had a connection. He was our little man that did everything with us. We use to call him the supervisor, as he was involved in every project we ever did. He always wanted to be involved which we welcomed and loved. We ended up getting our second Doberman Amber Lynn Bean which was Boz's niece so now he was also known as Uncle Boz. He taught Amber everything she know's. We are still blessed to have Amber however Boz will never be far from our thoughts. He use to love the song Moon River, whenever he would hear it he would howl along with it, it was his thing. Boz was always healthy and then one day he was having a very hard time lifting his head and was in terrible pain. We took him to the Vet and they diagnosed him with wobblers and said his quality of life would only get worse and we should think of putting him down. At five years old we were not willing to accept that there was no hope. I began to do my research as wobblers was nothing I was familar with and we began taking Boz to a chiropractor that believed he did not have wobblers but instead had an injury most likely from playing with Amber. We continued to take Boz to the chiropractor and he improved. Many nights were spent on the floor sleeping with him to keep him comfortable. He was finally healed and we were so happy, back to his old self! We were blessed to have four more years with him and then unfortunately on December 20, 2010 we had to say goodbye to our baby, he had stopped eating around Halloween and we tried everything but our efforts failed. Our baby was really sick this time and there would be no miracle cure. Our little man left this world with dignity and a big piece of our hearts. We will never forget how he made us laugh and he will always have a special place in our hearts. He was such a special guy and we will always love and miss him. Until we meet again at rainbow bridge Smoochy, your mommy, daddy and Amber miss you........
