    I can't believe I'm making this post. I can't believe this really happened.
    My sister called to let us know Happy died yesterday. I guess she tried to get ahold of us yesterday and couldn't. She came home from work and he was already gone.
    Kota was laying there next to him. Kota is the very best big brother in the world. Until the very end. He knew... I'm sure he knew. And he stayed with Happy. So Happy wasn't alone. He had his big brother with him.

    We had a song after I took this picture. It went "Happy's got a big ol' butt, aw yeah, Happy's got a big ol' butt!"

    Every time I think I'm done crying I remember something else and it starts up again. Run free Happy. You had all kinds of health problems here and there that came and went throughout your life, so you are finally better now. Well, maybe not quite. I bet there's still something just a little bit wrong with you. Like your tail doesn't wag right. And I bet you'd probably still run into the wall, back up in surprise, and then run right back into the wall again. But that's okay.
    Because that's the Happy I love.

    Oh, Beanie . . . we're never really ready to let them go, are we? How lovely, though, that Kota was with Happy as he left.

    It's bothered me that I couldn't be there with Shiva.

    There is so much love in that he had his brother with him to the end. Run free Happy. Heaven will be a better place with your loveliness in it. I am so very sorry for your sister and family.

    Years ago I added Happy as a "dog to watch" or whatever on My AKC... at the time it was because I was trying to research his "breeder" more and find out more about where he came from, so I wanted to make sure I kept track of his registration number.

    But regardless of why I initially added it... it's still sitting there. And I can't bring myself to delete his name from the list now. I don't think I'll ever be able to. He will sit there forever Happy Conquistador. And every time I see it I feel that big pang of sadness, so I SHOULD delete it so I won't feel so sad anymore when I log into My AKC.

    But I just can't do it. Because I guess somehow that makes it all the more final and I don't want it to be. It's still not fair. I still miss him so much. It's been almost a year. I'm crying now anyway.


    I love the puppy you sent me, Happy, but I still wish you were here. Even though I know you would be absolutely terrified of Payton.

    Personally, I wouldn't delete it. Maybe it's Happy's way of staying in touch. Try to remember the reasons you put Happy's name there and think of the puppy Happy sent you to love. Hugs
