Ever since I was a toddler, I wanted a dog of my own to be my companion and best friend. Champy was with me since he was born. We did almost everything together with him by my side. He was always a fav at my school’s show and tell day. The other kids wanted to hug my cute endearing little puppy. We grew up together, but he got older quicker than me and it saddened me to see him in pain during his last days. I took him on our last road trip together to the local weir where we had spent many a happy weekend together swimming and chasing sticks. The pain of being without him still brings tears to my eyes. Champy will always live in my heart as my best friend and the one who always seemed to know when I needed him most to hug. RIP “Champy”, beloved companion of Christian.
