BJ Harbison was my best friend from day one. When we picked him out at the animal shelter he was the only dog who would come and lick your hand, run into the rain, and come back to kiss you again. I was in 5th grade when he came into my life. He moved from Colorado, to Tennessee, and back to Colorado with me in 10 years. Then, after I met the second love of my life, we decided to make him part of our family. At 12 years old he came to live with Katie and I, solidifying our relationship into a family. After three and a half years of family adventures in Colorado, it was time for us to move to Seattle. BJ was 16 years old by that point- it was a miracle he made the move and two day drive. After a wonderful summer at our new home, we came home one day to find him unable to use his legs. He had been struggling with a neurological disease for a few years, and it had finally come to a close. We are so thankful for the compassion and support Peaceful Companions was able to provide us during our goodbye. We will always love BJ with all our hearts, and know he is chasing squirrels in doggie heaven.
