 Sir Teddy of Bear Meadows
Good Morning My Angel.

I hope you are happy, healthy and playing with the rest of your buddies in Heaven. I know in my heart that you went directly from my arms to God’s.

You were my reason for living and the joy of my life since you came to live with me as a 7-week-old puppy. I knew you were Heaven Sent the day I saw you as a little teddy bear at 4 weeks old. You had me wrapped around your little paw the minute I held you. Next to my salvation, you were the greatest Gift I have ever received from God. Our years with Pet-A-Pet brought me such joy as I watched you bring a smile to the elderly, the handicapped children and even the dying. You got sweeter and more handsome as the years passed. You were such an amazing and special ‘baby’. I could never have imagined that I would lose you three days after we celebrated your belated 16th birthday. As the guest of honor (and the center of attention), you were in your glory. All I had to do was observe you regally lying in the grass in such peace and serenity and my heart skipped a beat.

Since your arthritic leg no longer carried you, your favorite activity was a daily ride in the pet stroller that Uncle Mike bought for you. You were like a king on his throne, taking in everything around you. Just watching you gently sniff the air as it blew in your face put a smile on my face and everyone who encountered you. You were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and, even at 16, your mom knows you had much life left. (Teddy died quite unexpectedly and coincidentally shortly after being given another dog’s medication and/or an overdose of another med.)

How I miss being able to hug and kiss you every time I pass you sleeping on ‘your’ couch, and seeing your nose next to mine as I awaken every morning. How I miss the joy I felt in my heart every single time I looked at you. The silence is deafening. The shock is unbearable. My heart races every time I think of you. You will always be in my heart, my sweet boy; I hope the heartache will not. It was an honor to be your mom and take care of you all these years. I only wish we could have had more time together.

You are my heart. My love for you runs painfully deep. Be at peace, my sweet boy.

I will forever be Teddy’s mom. Carmen Z
