We were truly blessed to have Blackie as our loving and loyal pet for more than 18 years. He loved everyone but mostly me, his Mom. He chose me at six weeks old by climbing in my lap and giving me a sweet puppy kiss. He was my little shadow and followed me everywhere. In his later years he was blind and deaf but that didn’t stop him from knowing when I was on my way home everyday and waiting at the door for me. He enriched our life in so many ways and will be so missed. He entered our life in my arms and left this life the same way. We love you Blackie and we will meet again. Rest in peace my little black dog.
