Sumo 5/8/99 - 3/16/12 I miss you buddy

Well buddy, it's been one week now, and I've cried a river's worth of tears. I hope you knew and know now how much I loved and cared for you. You were my best friend, literally, and I yours. You meant so much to me.

I'm in a bad place mentally and emotionally right now. I feel lost. A part of me has died.

Sumo, my buddy, you were the best of dogs, you were the best of friends, you were always there for me. Oh, the fun we had together through the years. I wish we could have been a team forever.

Love and miss you till the day I die. "Wooooooo"

Much Love

Thanks Ed. It means a lot. I'm sorry for your pup too. I'm sure they made fast friends.

Sumo, you will live in my heart forever. I hope you're chasing all the squirrels. "Wooooooooo"

Rest in Peace, Sumo
Surely you were loved.

I know your pain, Rich. I lost my girl just after Christmas and I'm still not right.

There is no greater or purer love than that we give / receive from our wonderful friends and companions.

When you get to the bridge, Sumo, say hello to my Co Co and let her know I'll be there someday and we will never be parted again.
