My best friend Eddie passed away yesterday. We adopted Eddie (fka Magic) a little over 8 years ago from Heartland Lab Rescue. He was about 6 months old and very much a puppy. It was not all an easy road, but we grew into a family and Eddie was treasured by his forever home. He loved to chase squirrels, go swimming in the river, ride in the car with his dad, and run with his mom in the park. He loved to give hugs and snuggles. He lived a happy life. A few weeks ago we found out he had a malignant tumor on his heart and a few weeks later he was gone.
We learned many things from Eddie. He taught us to love unconditionally, find joy in the silliest things, and most definitely to live in the moment. He was a wise soul and by having been a part of our family changed our lives forever.
Thank you Heartland Lab Rescue for bringing him into our lives.
