Sleeps with Dogs
 
Nine years ago, my life changed forever. It was the moment I waited my entire life for - I adopted my first dog - from the Atlanta Humane Society. The four-year-old handsome hound mix's name was Blue. I dropped the "e" so my boy wouldn't have bad memories of his life before that fateful day, October 25, 2003. 

I remember how Blu gave me a kiss during our ride home from the Humane Society. It was then, I knew we were meant to share our lives. Blu was the inspiration behind Sleeps with Dogs.

Blu was a true Dog-ma's boy. He liked to just hang and chill near his mom, esp. while basking in some sunlight. He also loved treats any time and all the time.

Blu loved visiting his Auntie Jeannie's lake house in South Carolina. He enjoyed soaking in the fresh air while cruising on the lake. Blu truly felt like he was on vacation and always cherished every minute of his stay. Blu loved life, surrounded by the people and pooches he adored.

January 6th was a devastatingly sad day. While in Dog-Ma's arms, Blu crossed to the bridge. He took a big piece of me with him. He was my first. He was my heart. He was my boy. He was my Blu. Run free my love. Thank you for the last 9 years. They were the best with you. ♥

Blu looks so happy in all his pictures. His Dog-ma must have given him a great life and shown him love all their years together. I bet he did the same for her. Bless you,,,he will always be in your heart

One of my friends posted this on her facebook page. I read it, then read it again to my hubby... love the pic of Blu laying in the sun with his front paws crossed and the one with his cousins - I had to laugh out loud! I adopted my little girl (an 8 lb. mini dachshund) almost 14 years ago...I can't imagine life without her. I cried for your loss. This is a beautiful tribute to your sweet boy. Thank you for sharing.

I'm very sad for you. Blu was a wonderful dog and if anything like the creatures that have crossed my path- gave you far more than you gave him. Hugs. Rumpy and Jen
