Beloved companion and friend to Victoria King

 

Abandoned on a dirt road in Florida in August of 1993, little 8 week old 'nekkid' Hero would have died along with his brother and sister if they hadn't been spotted that day by a good samaritan who brought them to safety.

Hero and I had a destiny neither of us knew about that day.  My life would become immeasurably enriched by his gentle and loving ways and after his death he would lend his name to my wonderful group of dog rescuers who came to be known nationally as HERO'S WAGGIN TRAIN.

Hero lost his life to a sudden onset spinal aneurysm when he was not yet 6 years old. I was left without his wonderful smooth, warm body with the long white crest who always sat so sweetly on my left thigh and pressed his body hard into mine, while gazing adoringly into my eyes.  I miss him every day.

But he is remembered and his name lives on in a way that pleases me greatly. His name is shared by many people who save lives.

I think that would please him.

-Victoria

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be

Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do

I Love You Too, Hero
