Today is a special post, as it will be in loving memory of my dog Brosco. My family got Brosco when I was 5 years old. He was our first dog we ever had and we snuck him in the house for a few days before my daddy noticed. He didn't want us to have a dog, but he ended up falling in love with Brosco in a few short days and we go to keep him. Brosco liked my daddy the most, I know he did. I have so many wonderful memories of him, as he has been there for so much of my life.
I remember telling him secrets because I knew he wouldn't tell anyone.
I remember when he broke his leg because my brother and I thought he was invincible and we threw him off the picnic table. We were in big trouble.
He would chase the fishing lure around the yard for hours and surf in the pool.
He posed in my senior pictures with me and fell asleep in the photo shoot because he was getting so old.
He's been through 3 hurricane evacuations with my family. We lost him during hurricane rita, but we found him.
There are so many more memories we had, but I don't want to bore you.
I know he is just a pet and I'm grateful it wasn't a person. Regardless, he was still a part of the family. He was the best dog ever and he will be dearly missed. I really don't want to talk about how he died, I kind of want to forget. It left a bad taste in my mouth.
