Seems like only yesterday I fell in love with a very skinny and sick coon hound named Watson that Denise had rescued from a kill shelter in Bladen County, NC. Watson became Beaufort Watson Taylor, a.k.a. Beau, and a great member of the family and comunity. We have neighbors that knew Beau by name that do not know us. We lost Beau to cancer on Saturday, May 12. There is a void in our hearts that I'm not sure can ever be filled. Although Beau had a rough start in life, his last three and a half years were a dream come true. He learned about love, about being part of a family, he loved his daily walks, his Sunday drives in the country, his special long walks around Harris Lake, he knew he could count on food, a soft bed right beside mine and all the love he could stand whenever he wanted. He will be missed.

Although, we are very sad now, thanks for bringing Beau into our lives for the past three years. I believe I am a better person for knowing him.
