The Look Working My New Family

Bobby-Eagle was:
Born March 28 2004
Adopted June 4 2014

He passed August 3 2018

After we had adopted him two years later we found out that Bobby-Eagle was in the U.S. Air Force in Saudi Arabia for five years where he received two Purple Hearts for being stabbed.

My wife Patricia (passed February 28th 2017) and I decided to make his last years enjoyable. One day, after being home three months with us, he got out and ran away, but after calling and searching, he came running home from the park. After this we knew he had found his forever home and we let him walk off leash.

He was very smart. He helped me with my PTSD and learned how to awake Trish when she had sleep apnea. He slept at the foot of the bed, then later he would lay between us, his head on her leg and his butt pushed against me.

After Trish passed he became insecure, sleeping close to me or in his dog bed. He'd always look at me. On the sofa he would sit so he could see me.

Our most precious memories are:

Watching him running in the park and looking back to see if I was coming.

Watching him sleep. He was so at peace we couldn't tell if he was breathing.

Volunteering at a children's hospital, hospice centers, and
at running events as course marshals.
