Our sweet Brantley crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 11, 2023, with his Mama holding him and the rest of his family by his side. He had so many titles throughout his short life and he wore them all so well. Some of those were protector, healer, welcome committee, keeper of tennis balls, half of his Mama’s heart, the bestest boy, his sister’s keeper, and many many more.
Brantley came home in June of 2010, just a little ball of white fur and full of sweetness. He immediately got his first nickname, given to him by Nana, and that was Snowball. He didn’t have a shortage of nicknames, that’s for sure. Some of the most used were Bubba, Big Boy, and Shedder McBedder (given to him by his ”Frapa'' because of how much he shed). He quickly grew into a big, handsome boy who protected his Mama at all costs and never wanted to leave her side. Anyone who knew him knew he was just a big teddy bear and the sweetest boy who always wanted you to give him belly rubs or scratches behind his ears. He also loved to give kisses. When his sister, Minnie, came along he wasn’t so sure about her for a while, but they became obsessed with each other after the first initial hesitation. They would always give each other kisses and just love to be around one another.
His absolute favorite thing to do was chase birds all around the yard and if you would shine a reflection off of anything for him, he would go crazy trying to catch it. He was always there to welcome you home with a smile while running over to you as fast as he could to get a few scratches.
We know he was given the best life that money could buy. His Serta mattress beds were his favorite and he could be found rolling around on one of them every morning when he wasn’t quite ready to get up for the day. He was loved beyond measure and if love could have saved him, he would have lived forever.
Life is going to be hard without our sweet boy, but we are so beyond thankful for the 12+ years we got to spend together.
We love you so much and miss you so much already, sweet boy! We will never forget you.
