Brandon was my first dog. Got him when he was a pup and he lived to be 13. He was the most awesome dog, I wish I could of had more time with him when he was here. He always cheered me up when I was blue, was great with other animals, loved to swim and run, everyone adored him. Brandon got cancer and developed tumors, it was too far along to treat by the time it was discovered.. I do not know where you closed your eyes for the last time, although I searched and searched. They say some animals will slip away, in obedience to a law of protection, to escape the feeling of death and leave the pack. I only hope it was gentle, swift, and peaceful. Until we meet again and get to cross the Rainbow Bridge together, I love you Brandon.
