Boogie Bratland

Boogie was a special and loving Shih Tzu.  He came to us when he was just a year and a half old.  He was a rescue.  We already had an older dog at home and we were a bit hesitant to add another dog to our family at the time.  The minute we laid eyes on Boogie he stole our hearts and has tightly hung on to it ever since.  He loved people and other animals and he just loved life.  In the 20 years we had him I don't think he ever snarled or barked at anyone.  He was a strong healthy dog and very rarely had to visit Dr. Ted even in his final years.  He was, and will always remain, a very important and loving part of our family.  He lost his vision and his hearing in 2016 and that didn't stop him from enjoying every thing life had to offer.  Right up to his very last day when he'd come in from outside, he would run in the house like a 2 year old.....he always amazed us.  We became his eyes and ears in his final days and he remained steadfast.  On March 8th,2018 he sadly passed away.  It was simply due to old age.

He now runs and plays at the Rainbow Bridge and we will miss him with each passing day.  We sincerely thank Dr. Ted Purcell and the staff at Hermitage Veterinary Clinic for all the years you took care of our guy.  

Gone but "fur"ever in our hearts.  

Kindest regards,
Shauna, Sean and Sheldon Bratland
