In Memory of Beau


'Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.'
—Roger Caras

When I read this quote, I began to think how true it is. This is something only a dog owner or dog lover would know or truly believe. We had Beau for fourteen years. We cared for him from puppyhood through his senior years. He was a huge part of everything we did. He came on vacations with us every year and took part in every special occasion in our life. Even the sad ones. When the dream came true of finding our B&B, Beau was part of that too.
At thirteen years old, he adjusted to his new home and a new lifestyle right along with us. He greeted the guests happily and completed the picture of what we wanted our place to be about—welcoming warmth, a place of comfort and love. We lost our boy on January 3, 2006 and we believe he chose his time. He was slowing down, but always kept that smiling face and iron will. The holidays felt bittersweet for us all. Now we know why. We are lonely without that smiling face, but we are happy that he realized the dream along with us. Together, the three of us were able to make this place our own and that feels good.
Beau lived to see one of the guest rooms named for him, and that will keep him here at the Inn, with us forever. His spirit of love and smiles will live on. To those of you who are reading this who had met our Beau, please smile when you think of him and know he had a happy and full life. And thanks for the special attention you gave him. To those of you who did not, give your pet a hug from Beau—and know that there's a new yellow, furry, smiling angel in heaven looking down and blessing us all.
