Will FOREVER miss my Lil' Mama's Boy

A woman can have different types of love for different men in her life. This can also be said for dogs. I have had a few meaningful men in my life. I have had ONLY ONE in my dog-owned life.

His name was Mickey. I adopted Mickey from a local shelter and he only cost me $20 at the time. I was in the 6th grade. The year was 1988. They told me that he was roughly 2yrs. old at the time. We had just moved to California from Georgia and I was very lost and scared in a new school. I felt as though I had no good friends to trust. Mickey became my world.

When Mickey was 4yrs. old, he threw out a disk in his back and I was told that he would not survive a normal life. I was also told that he would probably only live 3-4 more years. I opted to take that chance. Mickey had massive back surgery and then I was told that he would not walk again. I opted to prove them wrong. About 6 months later, Mickey was hopping around. His two hind legs stuck together so he would look like a rabbit when he ran. Everyone loved Mickey and his vivacious ways. When he was in his heavy days; he looked like a little pig. His nickname became “Fatty”. I was so glad that I took that chance on my little Mama’s Boy.

I never knew that a little dog could be a friend, companion, therapist, son and hero. Mickey saw me through the Junior High days, the High School days, and the death of my Dad, my military time, the College days and almost to the birth of my son. I always tell my little boy about his older brother and show him pictures. Mickey passed away in my arms the morning of December 20, 2005 at 3:30am.

I always say that if you don't believe in Angels, then you haven't had a dog like my Mickey. I’m not one for taking too many chances, but I’m glad I took a chance on my Mickey. My little man lived 17 and a half yrs. with me. If he was really 2 when I got him, that would mean he lived to be 19 a half yrs. old! That's a HECK of a lot longer than four years, as I was told by those doctors. All those beautiful years with my little guy because I took a chance that day. Always cherish your fur-babies because they truly show you what unconditional love really is! I miss him so and cannot wait for the day when my purpose on this earth is over and I get to cross that Rainbow Bridge and be with my little Mama’s Boy again.
