In Memory of Moonpie


Boston Terrier

I had been heartbroken after a Boston I had named Pnut had disappeared after wandering off. My ex-wife got me Moonpie to help me get over the loss. 

We were lucky that Pnut was found and returned so I had 2! Pnut sadly passed from seizures in my arms but she and Moonpie had a great time together. 

Moonpie was my baby and loved to play. She had a wonderful head tilt when you asked about “ball” or “play” and wanted to every day. She even continued to after a stroke in 2017. 

Age had left her deaf and blind but she could smell the ball and would try to tug it away from me. She was my beloved Mookie and I still miss her every day. 

When it became clear that she was failing and that quality of life was poor at best, I finally made the decision and stayed with her to the end. I buried her with all her toys and blankets in my backyard and visit her every day.


Losing a Boston Terrier is like losing a member of the family. The sorrow you feel is a natural process of grieving.

This space has been created as a safe place for Boston owners to share stories about their Boston and memorialize them since going to doggy heaven.

Create your own memorial to celebrate the life of your Boston Terrier.

The resources for grief page includes three helpful videos as well as links to great articles outside of this website covering pet loss.
