My Beautiful Angel Boujima 28 October 2001 - 22 March 2012

In memory of Boujima, my heart and soulmate. Boujima died very suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday (22.03.2012), at only ten years and five weeks of age. She fell sick on Thursday morning, March 22. She struggled to walk.

I don't know exactly what happened to her. We took her to hospital. I suppose due to some wrong treatment she suffered a heart attack or something. She died within 10 minutes after the treatment was made, and we laid her to rest shortly thereafter.

I miss her so much, as she spent most of her time directly on my lap because she could never get close enough to anyone to show all the love she had to offer.

This memorial may sound like I am nuts, but when you have a friend die, you lose part of your everyday being. This is no different. My Boujima was around me every second of every day, and when she died, a huge portion of my being went with her.

I will always love her as she is and always will be my little "Girly Girl" and my best friend. May you rest in peace, my friend!

I really want to be with my Boujima again. I really miss her.

Boujima, you left this world so young and so suddenly. You had so much more to give. You were full of unconditional love and were an angel from God. You were a sister to us and a daughter to our amma and appa.

I will never forget that day we got you from your owner. It was Feb 25, 2002. You looked so beautiful and charming. Dear, I knew you were special.

You were so attuned to my emotions, knew when I was sad, anxious, scared and angry. Pressing your head firmly against my face or nestling into my lap to offer comfort, you were so thoughtful.

There wasn't a day that I didn't and still don't think about you, Baby. You were a part of my life, saw me through so many transitions. Today I lost a part of my family, a true friend indeed.

I would have never been ready to say goodbye. So I won't say goodbye, but I'll be seeing you BooBoo.

You were awesome and made my life so much easier during very hard times. Words cannot express the love I have for you. You were always so loyal to me, you brought so much laughter and joy to our family.

I don't know how I'm going to sleep without you by my side.

I keep looking around, thinking I will see a glimpse of you somewhere. I listen and keep hoping to hear your feet walking across the floor.

I sit here wondering exactly where you are, what you are experiencing, and hoping that you could hear me and feel my arms wrapped tightly around you as you drifted off to eternal rest.

My heart is aching for you, just to see you one more time, to hold you one more time, to receive those wonderful kisses from you one more time. I look down and my dress is covered in your fur.

I can't believe you are gone, you are in heaven now, sweet girl. Look over us and protect us. We will NEVER FORGET YOU. You will forever be in our hearts...

And I am praying that I will see you again in heaven. Wait for me Boujima. I will see you again.

Love Forever and Always,

Your Sister,

Ilavarasi V.

Two years past and still deeply missed!

It has been two years today since my sweet Boujima left us. The delight of our lives is gone and our world is dim. We're told that time will heal our pain but not having her in our lives is so hard. A part of us went with her, so she did not go alone.

We won't forget those years she shared with us. They were such delightful memories!

Now even as an adult, I picture you greeting me when I get there. I am waiting for the day when we can play again!

One year past and still deeply missed!

It was one year ago today that my sweet Boujima left us. The delight of our lives is gone and our world is dim. We're told that time will heal our pain, but not having her in our lives is so hard. A part of us went with her, so she did not go alone.

We won't forget those years she shared with us. They were such delightful memories! I will never forget how she made me feel every day I came home from work.

I can't stop thinking about her. There's a part of my soul that is now empty. My love for her is eternal. It was one of the hardest moments of my life. I will never forget my angel Boujima. She has touched my life.

Boujima! You were loved and liked by so many people, family, friends and neighbours. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.

No one knows the pain I feel and the loss I have in losing my little Boujima. Yes, I know to some people she's just a dog, but to me she will always be my heartbeat.

You were my true companion and no one will ever take your place in my heart.

My family has lost a wonderful member. We will always keep her memory alive.

Now even as an adult, I picture you greeting me when I get there. I am waiting for the day when we can play again!

"God be with you 'til we meet again !!”

I love you and miss you so much, Boujikutti!!

Miss You

Miss you, ma Chellam.

Thank You
by: Ila

It is very kind of you. I thank you for your kind words, Laurie. And I am very sorry for your loss too. I hope your Boo Boo and Boujima will be with us. I still talk with her daily. I'm waiting eagerly to meet her in the rainbow garden.

Thanks again dear.

I'm So Sorry for Your Loss
by: Laurie

Oh my, how your memorial made me miss my sweet angel Holly. I, too, called her Boo Boo. She left me very suddenly on March 14, 2011.

I miss her still so very, very much. Your words have reminded me of how I loved her and needed her and still do need her in my life, my home, my bed, but she's not there.

They say it gets easier, but it doesn't, not when you've had that kind of love and compassion for your best friend. She needed me when we got her from the local shelter, but I still need her today to help me get through other things in life. I still talk to her and that helps somewhat.

Please know that your baby Boujima knew you loved her. She will always be with you in your heart. I wish things like this didn't have to happen to the ones we love more than life.

Take care, cry all you want, love another. She won't mind because she knows that you need to.

Boujima I Miss You
by: Anonymous


They say memories are golden
Well maybe that is true
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

One Week

It has been one week. I remember so many things. Your sweetness, the hugs you would give, the way you watched for me to come home everyday---in fact I can't bear to come home and look at your spot.

I love you more than absolutely anything. Until we meet again on the rainbow bridge and I get all your soppy kisses...

Sleep tight Angel. Love you.

Our Icon of Joy

Bouji, who is an Icon of Joy for our family's soul, may rest in peace. We are left with all her memories lingering in our minds.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.

Hello Sister...

Dont worry. She always lives in your heart...

Dear Marry,

I can't digest this as. No one to remind me that it is 5:00am. No tap tap tap of her feet on the floors. No loving nudge or happy tail whacks. No barking. No wet kisses.

My heart has hardened, and I need her here to soften it.

Your Angel
by: Mary

I lost my heart dog Mellie July 20, 2011. Her memorial is on here. I too pray that I will see her again. She was my sister in a dog's body.

Please accept my sincerest condolences. I truly believe that those we keep in our hearts we will be with again.
