My beloved boy Billy crossed the rainbow bridge a few days ago. He was 6 years old but had to leave early because of heart related issues.
We took him in when he was nearly 1. He was abandoned by his previous owner at the landfill because he had an annoying skin condition. He made his way to where my father worked, but he didn't get along with the other street dogs that roamed the place and was scarred and frequently injured therefore. We decided to adopt him and in matter of weeks, he was the happiest most energetic boy I've ever seen.
I've never experienced the loss of a pet like this before. I feel an immense emptiness right now. The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind. I cherish our time spent together, till we meet again sweet boy Billy
