In Honor of Charlie

CharlieMay 15, 2003-June 9, 2010

We love you more than words could express!
You are and will always be part of our AARF family and always in our HEARTS !!!




My Baby Charlie Boo:

It has taken mommy couple of days to try to figure out why God took you away from me that afternoon on June 9, 2010. So far, the only good explanation I can come up with is that he found a better spot for you. Knowing that I would never give you up voluntarily due to my selfish nature, he decided to take you away while I wasn’t there. This is the only explanation I can accept even though it doesn’t take away any of the pain I feel. Even though we’ve only been together for a little over 3 years, it feels like we’ve been together forever. You were my baby and always will be. You’ve done so much more for me than I could’ve ever done for you and for that, I hope you would forgive me. You were the best dog and friend I could ever ask for. You were my best friend, family, and my Charlie Boo. You were my sunshine, always able to put a smile on my face and make me laugh even when you were naughty. I didn’t realize how much I depended on you until you were gone. I said once I wanted a ride or die dude, guess what, you’re it. You’ve been through it all with me and were always by my side. You’ve taken a spot in my heart that no one or doggie will ever be able to replace. You are the cutest and best doggie ever and like mommy always told you; don’t ever let anyone else tell you any different. I love you always and forever and I’ll miss you ‘til I get to be with you again. Forever in my heart and thoughts,

Thank you Sharon & Karen Malechek along with AARF for bringing us together.

Tribute to a Best Friend

Sunlight streams through the window pane onto a spot on the floor.....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie, but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet, and muted echoes sound.....
then I remember,
it's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road, and up beyond the hill,
then I remember,
it can't be yours..... your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor and empty muted hall,
and lay them with the absent voice and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memories in a blanket of my love,
and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.
