IN LOVING MEMORY OF CAPTAIN BOOTSIE BEAR October 12 1994 July 27 2008
October 12, 1994 brought into our life four black bundles of fur and joy and changed our lives forever.
One of these bundles of joy was Captain Bootsie Bear. How can words describe him? Let me try to count the ways .
Coat black as night with a very striking gray beard ..twinkling eyes that always see everything for the first time anew.
A body a teddy bear would yearn for ..and a personality so fresh and alive that he won the hearts and minds of everyone he met. He kind of reminds you of Puppy Klaus Kringle. You know, Puppy Klaus, the Ancient bringer of gifts to all good little puppies everywhere on Puppy Xmas Eve! He was always the diplomat, statesman and public relations person of the group. The others kind of looked out for him because Bootsie didn’t always see things the way they are but how they should be
Bootsie loved adventures and was happiest when out and about discovering new things……a butterfly….a flower……..each day was a new adventure to him.
Bootsie had a strong will to live but unfortunately illness won. Even up to the last he tried to take that last walk…that last adventure.
He filled our life with love and happiness….always giving his love and loyalty without asking anything in return. His passing leaves such a big void in our life.
We’ll miss that smiling little face though we will never forget and we will never be able to forget him.
Bootsie, we will always love you… You remain in our hearts and memories forever. No one can take your place. MILLIONS OF KISSES AND HUGS BOOTSIE FOREVER… Mom…..Dad and your Brothers and Sister Tank, Ralph, Zorro, and Baby
