Being in the presence of such a noble and majestic soul, was what it was like when you were with Balik. There was a royal quality to him. Yet he was gracious and generous with his love. His temperament was that of a gentle animal who's sole purpose was to be a good friend and companion to Hap. He carried himself with grace and dignity. All who knew him adored him and felt honored to be around him. We was his court and he was our King.
The bond between him and Hap was not that of a dog and his master, theirs was a special 'friendship'. A relationship of mutual respect and admiration. They were both companions to the other, and each others best friend.
Expressing myself with sadness and loss today. For today we lost someone very special. Though we could never fill your paws, we will do our best to watch over Hap for you.
