E's Bobo Boat
Bobo has been adopted by our very own Joseph & Mary Beth Schiros. We couldn’t ask for a better home for this much deserving boy, congratulations to Bobo and Joseph & Mary Beth! Bobo will be living with a grey sister Lil, and also another canine sister named Amber, he also will have quite a few kitties to keep him warm on those cold Michigan winter nights!
Bobo was a handsome, and sweet brindle boy who got off to a rough start as a pet. He was returned to a group in IL by the first family who adopted him because they “didn’t have time for him anymore”, this was after he spent the better part of a year being dropped off at their vet kennel and drugged for separation anxiety. When Bobo came to GEM, he was so happy to have a family again, and when he met his soon to be dad Joe, that was all it took! Bobo and Joe were buddies, and with the Schiro’s family Bobo finally had the home he deserved, a loving family who made lots of time for him and a greyt brother and 2 sisters (Boots, Lilly, & Amber). It is with great sadness that I must place Bobo here at the bridge, he will be missed very much by his family and by the many GEM volunteers whose lives he touched. Bobo would have been 7 next Friday. Run with wind Bobo, until we meet again on the other side.
A Time to Remember
They come into our lives for such a short time
A time we wouldn’t trade not even for a dime.
Then before you know it the years have flown by
And then all of the sudden we’re saying good-bye.
It wasn’t that long ago we said our good-byes
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.
Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
Into God’s loving arms, in heaven above.
Over the days we’ve shed many tears
But the memories we have will live on for years.
We feel your presence and we know that you’re near
You’re keeping us safe and calming our fear.
We think about memories from years past
When you were young and strong and ran so fast.
We remember all the great times that we all had
How you always made us happy, never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest years we had
We’ll always look back on them and never be sad.
We look forward to the time we’ll be together again
And we thank the Lord for such a great friend.
Now you run and play up in heaven above
Cradled in God’s arms covered with his love.
Playing by the bridge waiting for the day
We come down thru the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we’ll never forget
Because to us you’re one very special pet.
You’re like a star in the dark of night
Always watching over us with the Lord’s light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend
Who will always be with us even to the end.
We’ll always remember you the way you were
One big lovable huggable pile of fur.
