COSMA (SPIRIT) 4/19/03
Adopted 5/11/03 - Rainbow Bridge 11/05
11/20/05 - When we rode
up to Mass. to pick him up a couple of years ago we were excited and and
anxious to meet our new friend, known as "Spirit" at that time. At first
he was reluctant to come out of the car and greet us but I could tell by
the kind look in his eye we'd hit it off great. I was wrong....Cosmo
(AKA-Spirit) joined our family like he was meant to be here and had been
from the start. Even those who visited and were not "dog people"
soon realized he was much more than a dog. He was "Cosmo". A
dear friend and companion who stayed by my side every day (literally- I
work from home) and followed me from room to room not wanting to miss an
opportunity to grab and show some affection. (Or take a handout from a
snack.) Well, the past two years flew by and we got closer each day.
In the beginning of the summer Cosmo developed a swelling on his neck
which turned out to be lymphoma. Initially he responded very well to
treatment and then one day (it seemed that fast) he took a turn for the
worse. Three weeks ago Cosmo became a real angel watching over us still
to make sure we're alright. I still feel him here and look for him
around the corner forgetting he's waiting somewhere else for us. Keeping
a look out always for a small pat on his head knowing he'd make us the
lucky ones for having known and loved him. Thanks buddy we still miss ya!!
Love- Lou, Ingrid, Gabriella & Francesca!
can't believe its been over a year since Cosmo joined our family as
"Spirit". From the first moment we met him in Massachusetts last year we
knew he was going to be a happy member of our family. And we were
5/11/03 - Spirit has been adopted.
