Biscuit My Guardian Angel

In March of 2011 my wife decided she wanted to get a dog. She told me she wanted a Toy Poodle. The very next day I saw a sign that said, "Toy Poodles For Sale", so I called the number and took our 4 kids to meet Biscuit. Upon arriving we instantly fell in love with the most adorable dog ever and gladly took him home. He quickly became my best friend and we were inseparable.
In October of 2016 my wife and I separated and I rented a hotel room, hoping it to be temporary. After a week I tried to come home and the locks had been changed and the alarm code changed, but I was able to pick up Biscuit. Over the next few years I was alone in an apartment, but it was tolerable because I had Biscuit to comfort me. During this time Biscuit started having monthly seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy.
In May of 2018 I was served with divorce papers and it was finalized in November of 2019. During this time my visits with my children were disallowed and even once visitation was established my kids didn't want to see me. I was completely crushed, but Biscuit stayed by my side the entire time and showed me so much love that it helped ease the pain.
After 3 1/2 years of battling seizures they finally got the best of Biscuit and he died September 2, 2020. Biscuit was all I had left from my family and losing him has been the most difficult pain I've had to endure. I look back and see how God gave me Biscuit to get through a period of time that would have been unbearable without him. I'm still crushed by losing him, but I have no doubt one day we will be reunited.
I'm praying to have a chance to be a part of my kids lives again and I'm trusting that will happen in time. I'm so thankful for the time I had with Biscuit. There will never be another dog like him and he'll always be in my heart.
I'm so sorry for your loss and so glad that you had Biscuit to help you through such a tough time in your life ~ Sue
