***July 10 1987 - June 15 2000**~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is a tribute to my first ever dog Enzo. (Enzo means house-ruler in old German) He was not only a dog but a friend, my best friend. When I was born, Enzo was already 5. He was always king of the house and the spoiled one of the home, yet he accepted a new baby into his home. He would sleep by my side and when something was wrong he would warn my parents with a small bark. He learnt fast. He learnt words like "ball" "toy" "bottle" and when someone asked him for it he actually went out to get it for us. When he turned 7 we found out he had cancer in his intestines. We were all devastated and thought he would never make it. He went into surgery and came out all smiles! He was so grateful for us and stayed by our side everyday. Enzo started to get sick but that never stopped him. He had lots of surgerys in his time and lots of vet visits, no matter what he always had a smile to his face. Each birthday, each easter, each christmas, was special to us because we never knew when he would leave us...I think Enzo knew that and always cuddled up with us when we were down and looked at us like as saying "it's going to be ok, i'm still here". We were home every day for him and always took care of him. His favorite doggie friends came over frequently to visit him and Enzo was spoiled rotten. Enzo enjoyed every second of it. When he turned 12 he went for his monthy check up for the cancer when they found it spread all around his body and that he didn't have much time left. When the vet said the words Enzo looked up at us and in his eyes he was telling us it would be alright. We went home and tried deciding what we should do. I was only 7 at the time but I already understood something bad was going to happen. Enzo and I spent the entire day in the sand box. He lay there next to where I was sitting in the grass and put his head on my lap. He was breathing so heavily, his eyes started to close, and suddenly the breathing stopped. We buried him in that exact spot along with his favorite toys and my little plastic shovel. That sand box is still there, this time my little brother goes and play in it, and our current dogs run around him and watch him and sometimes it feels like there's only Enzo there with him watching over him telling him he's alright. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Rest In Peace. You're out of your misery now and I'm sure you're having a better life now with no pains, no surgerys, and no worries. We told you that you were an angel ;) Miss you boy!

I'm so sorry about your loss. I bet right now he's looking down from Rainbow Bridge telling you not to be sad that he'll allways be there for you. I wish I had a dog like that. I'm sorry.

Oh my god, I'm crying..... So sad, he passed away on your lap..... Oh, how sad. I can't get over that! Awww. RIP most cheerful, helpful, smart, understanding, beautiful Enzo. I'm just thinking of him now... what a kind and beautiful soul! I'm sure in doggie heaven right now my old dog Pants will be meeting your Enzo and they'd be good buds. RIP Enzo and Pants. Best Wishes and lots of memories.
