Rest in Peace, Sweet Huggybear
Posted by Tony & Cheri on September 15, 2008
We are heartbroken. This morning we received a call from our housesitters (we’re visiting in San Francisco at the moment) that our English bulldog Huggybear died in his sleep last night. We got him as a puppy on Superbowl Sunday 11 years ago. He was a gentle, sweet, wonderful dog who gave us years of unconditional love. He liked everyone, but his heart belonged to Cheri, and until the last year or so when it got harder and harder for him to move around, he would follow her from room to room, no matter how tired he was.
Unlike the other pets we have lost, we didn’t have time to prepare ourselves for his death or even to say goodbye. We are glad for him that he passed peacefully in his sleep and didn’t have to suffer any protracted illness, but we are incredibly sad for us.
Huggy’s ashes will be buried in our backyard alongside Belle and Carib. His passing will leave a huge hole in our life.
