In Memory of Tex 1998 to 6-14-2011

by Becky
(Texas)

He chose me. This wonderful energetic loving dog. He was found by my neighbors, but he always escaped to come to my house. Finally the neighbors gave up and gave him to me.

I have been blessed with his love, and devotion. He helped me heal from a heart attack and the loss of another beloved pet. Tex even accepted another puppy in our home because I wanted it. He accepted and loved the grandkids with great patience.

Tex loved nothing more than a good long walk, a trip to the dog park and 2 chicken strips at night.

I know I did the right thing in letting him pass on. He was ill, could not stand anymore. Tex had pride and did not like to be carried. I was with him when he passed on, just like he was always with me.

I hope this pain passes or at least eases. Charlie dog keeps looking for his Tex. He does not understand, and I can't explain it to him.

Even though my heart is shattered and I seen no relief in the hurt, I would do it all again for a dog named Tex who chose me.

Miss you my friend, thanks for all the love. See you on the other side someday.

Mom
