With a heavy but appreciative heart, it is my sad duty to announce that Boscoe breathed his last, January 3, 2005, just after 12 noon eastern time.

He struggled in the last year with numerous bouts of debilitating joint pain, and to prolong his life, in the opinion of his veterinarians and myself, would be to only prolong his discomfort.

His last morning was spent being luxuriantly brushed, gulping chunks of cheese (old cheddar, his absolute favourite), playing as much as he could with his master, and lounging in breathless satisfaction.

He had a fortunate life, full of joy and play and travel and good company, and he exhibited qualities that typified the best that any animal, or human, could aspire:

Love without sentimentality;
Intelligence without arrogance;
Courage without ferocity;
Grace without conceit;
Beauty without vanity; and,
Strength without insolence.

I shall miss him dearly.

I am very sorry for your loss. :( And sorry that your first post here was a very sad one. But a wonderful eulogy it is.

Play, pain free at the rainbow bridge, until it is time for the reunion with your loved ones.

RIP Boscoe

It is hard to lose a close companion such as Boscoe. I'm sure you brought each other much happiness. I'm glad his last hours could be spent with his most favorite person and that he had a happy heart. Giving dogs happiness can be one of the best things. Have fun at the RB. Your dad loved(and still does) you very much.

I'm so very sorry for your great loss:(:(:( What a beautiful tribute to a very special dog and best friend. We should all be so lucky to know the deep bond of love and friendship that you and Boscoe shared. As Dukedogsmom said so perfectly, it gives some comfort knowing that his final hours were spent with the one he loved most, enjoying your closeness and some of his favorite things. Rest easy now dear Boscoe and run and play hard at the Rainbow Bridge until that happy day when you and your Dad are together once more. My deepest sympathies to you, Dad of Boscoe. Love, Sandra, Cody and Star

Your loving words for your departed Bosco have brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss. Dear Bosco can now run and be pain free across the rainbow bridge. I'm sure that my dear, departed Sami barked an energetic weclome to him upon his arrival.
