I was so, so sad to learn of the untimely passing of my nephew Gene’s K-9 partner, BC, yesterday. My heart is breaking for Gene, Lori, and their beautiful twins, David and Sarah. RIP, BC. I know you will run freely over the rainbow bridge…And I know how much you will be missed by your family, co-workers and friends. Thank you for the tremendous contribution you made to your community. Sending all our love to our family who’s hearts must be torn to pieces, and have already suffered way too many losses.
There is a beautiful video of him on youtube but I don’t know how to get it to my blog. Perhaps if you go to youtube and search for BC Wilsea you might find it….But be prepared to cry. I still am.
My condolences and love are sent to you and the family. Losing a furry companion is so painful. BC Wilsea crossed over The Rainbow Bridge and will be running free with all the other loved furry companions.
Thanks, Rita….it must be so beautiful over that bridge!
Aw Bon…So sad
Thank you Aunt Bon….
here is the link to the video
Love you, Lori.
Thank you Bonnie, a pet is a pet. But a partner is a partner. In 5 years we were only ever apart for 4 days. I can’t tell you how many times we ran into the jaws of hell together or alone to protect one another. When he was at work he was fierce and when he was at home he was Sarah and Davids plaything and gaurdian. The stories of his last six work weeks were fantastic, its like he knew and he wanted everyone to remember that he could still.do the job. I wake up every morning and I call his name still, I go to work and ill find myself talking to him in the car and at the end of the night.when I’m in bed, I cry every night because I miss him. He was MY best friend, MY greatest protector, he was my BIG DOG and life seems much smaller withouth him.
Oh, Gene, my heart aches for you as I can only imagine the bond that must tie you, and the pain and sadness you must be feeling. Just recently, when you, Lori and the kids had been in Florida, I know how anxious you were to get back to NY, having left BC for the first time. You sum it up so well when you say “life seems much smaller without him”. I keep good thoughts for you, Lori and the kids and know that BC left this world a much better place. Sadly, animals–just like people– come with no guarantees. We have to appreciate our loved ones every day because any day could be the last. I love you guys. Kiss the kids.
