1994 - 2010
I first got Blackie when I lived in New York. I was terrified because he fell asleep on my leg and I didn't want to move my legs because I thought he was going to bite me. Sure enough he didn't. I had Blackie for 16 years. He was always there no matter what. Even when everyone turned their back on me. He listened to everything I had to say. I have to say I will never find another man like him, besides God. He never mislead me or anything. I will miss him so much. He was my brother, a friend, and my everything. I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world. Now I think to myself that he is in a safer place, but I will dearly miss him.
