Beau, my little bear
Never thought of myself as a big fan of little dogs. So when my
mother gave me a 24-ounce, 6-week-old Maltese in 1998 as a gift
after a bad breakup with a boyfriend, I was apprehensive. But the
tiny puff of white playfully worked his way into my heart. Using
his big brown eyes and precious gestures, he taught me his
language. What he communicated was his desire to please me. We
bonded. He has been my only constant companion throughout most of
my adult life. Because he’s so little, I could take him anywhere —
road trips, airplanes, hotels, work, shopping. He loved prospect of
an adventure, even it was just a trip to the mailbox. His loving
and loyal nature kept me from feeling lonely, which is a tall order
for a single gal with no children. People often said “you’re Beau’s
world” and “he can’t stand to be apart from you.” Well, I feel the
same. On Aug. 30, little Beau had a terrible fall and died in my
arms. Much of the joy in my life died with him that day. I put a
flower on his grave each morning and whisper, “I love you, Beau, my

Soaring over Saddle Road, the elusive pueo paused midflight before
diving down into the deep grass of the rolling ag land around us.
Taking flight again with empty talons, he circled over to a branch
at a bordering forest where he perched with watchful eyes. Few life
experiences for me top the viewings of the Hawaiian short-eared owl
that we were fortunate enough to spend some time with on the Big
Island. In this photo, he flew right over us, momentarily cocking
his head to give us a quizzical look.

draft, there’s the weekly games. Checking scores before church and
after. Sunday afternoon game, followed by the all-important Monday
night game. Your team needs 9 points from your tight end. A
touchdown play ensures you a win. Every moment of every game
counts. The ultimate football experience for a football
