sleep baby, sleep

thank you so much, all of you, for your good wishes and kind comments for bozzy

he's off now, on a new adventure, lighting campfires in the sky

boswell b. jones
september 1, 1996 -  september 6, 2012

(we rescued him from a shelter so we named him for the street he was found on - boswell crescent, whitehorse, yukon. 
the b. jones is because all my pets when i was a child had multiple names and this is my version of a john doe)

also known as:
bozzy boo
ralph the talking cat
b-swizzle the nizzle fo shizzle

 we loved him well

Dear Jiianye,
my heart and thoughts go out to you. Bozzy will be at peace now, no more pain. I am sure that right now he is laying by the fire, looking down on you and purring. I am so sorry for your loss,
Sending you heartwarming hugs

Dear Jillayne
You gave Bozzy a most happy and comfortable long life. You could not have done more!
May he rest in peace and may your heart be at peace too soon!

I left a consoling message for you on your previous post but I just noticed that it did not go through - perhaps due to the verification code which we often don't get right. Not really sure why!!??

Sending you warm heartfelt and consoling hugs,

Oh honey...tears. I share your tears and send you lots and lots of hugs. Such a precious boy and so lucky the two of you to have each other. Time is just never long enough with our fuzzy critters.
Wish I could be there to give you a hug in person.

Sweet Bozzy is with my beloved BooBoo Sasha now and we can share our tears together. I am so sad for your loss. Keep your memories close every day. Loving Healing Hugs to you and Marc.

Perhaps Bozzy and our Peaches are lying by a warm fire sharing cat tales about their families.
Sometimes it is the most difficult thing to do-to say goodbye to our loving companions, but we do so to help them pass in dignity and not suffer the pain of their illness. And though we grieve for them, we know that the release we have given them is born of love.

I feel your pain as I just lost my dog and my cat within the past three weeks. Remember all the love he gave you and it may just help you to find comfort in the days ahead. I'll say a prayer for you and your family. May you have peace in your hearts today and always. Much love!!

Dearest Jillayne,
he now sleeps without pain, and happy in his heaven.
I feel with you, and hope you can soon happily remember all the wonderful hours you spent with Bozzy, without feeling the pain.
Sending hugs and blessings.

Dear Jillayne,

So sorry for your loss of your sweet Bozzy and I know the pain and sadness that goes when we have to say goodbye to our beloved pets.

Sending hugs

Oh, Jillayne! I am so very sorry. Big virtual hugs that I wish I could give to you in person.

This post has been open in my browser window for days... it makes me so sad but so happy at the same time. How lucky we were to have had him... and all because you said "yes" when you could have said "no" to a little black and white newspaper clipping. I'll never forget that... and I hope I can give myself or my kids or whoever a similar gift someday.
