Boris: For Love’s Sake

On Wednesday, I put down Bo Bo. It was time.

What you looking at?
Creating memories
Begone with you
His badass pose
Going through my divorce faking a smile. No faking for Boris. Dogs know.
These two were close
Loved to sit in the sun
Stop embarrassing me!
Allie would call him a little peanut
It was time. Big big ❤️

Just incredible how much love and joy he brought into my life.



I didn’t drink this time! In 2009, I was in a period of 6 – 9 months of sobriety (I forget there were numerous attempts) when I had to put down my dog Bandit. It completely rocked my world. I was beyond a mess. I remember leaving the vet and driving straight to the liquor store to buy beer and continue right back into my binging like I never missed a beat. It took me till 2019 to finally quit. Yes I had many failures in between.

It’s ironic because right diagonal from the parking lot where I brought Boris to the vet is Banana Belt. A liquor store. As I walked out of the vets this time I was indeed a mess. A beautiful mess though. With much love and strength like Boris brought into my life. I got into my car this time and went straight home and out for a walk. Boris loved walks.❤️

  5. Sooo sorry; I feel you so much (I miss my girl, who we put to sleep almost 2 years ago, every day…). HUGS!

  6. I am so sorry, Dwight. 😢. It is so hard, and oddly, it is often a loss that marks the closing of a chapter in our lives, which makes it all the intense. 💞
