Superman J. Hensley, age 15, of Indianapolis crossed over the rainbow bridge on December 12, 2018.
Superman was born on March 8, 2003. He had a big name to live up to for such a small body, but live up to it he did! He also had many nicknames that he answered to Supie, Potamus Bear, Poopsie, and Poopers.
Superman was one special boy and lucked out when his grandma was entrusted to pick him out for his new family with the only stipulation being that she choose a boy. He enjoyed walks in the park with his Grandpa Raulie, watching Netflix with his momma, eating, and of course protecting his world with all 12 pounds of his ferocious bark. Superman had a sweet and spicy personality that his family loved dearly. He was a great big brother to Kolton; by his side from the day he was born. He loved food, his favorite treats were Greenies, hotdogs, chicken and hamburgers.
When asked what Superman meant to her, his mom, Davina, explained it beautifully: “He was my first born. He came into my life when I was extremely depressed and made my life worth living. He’s been the best friend I could have ever asked for and I could never have dreamed up a better puppy. He’s been there through my good and bad times and no matter what, he’s loved me unconditionally. His face is what dreams are made of. His little paws, the way his bottom wiggled when he walked. I loved him with every fiber of my being and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. The house is as empty as my heart. No jingling of his collar, no little feet walking in the pee pad. No one to greet me at the door when I get home. No one to snuggle up and watch movies with or take naps with. Who was he to me? My absolute best friend.”
Superman is survived by his parents Davina and Arthur Moore, his first human dad John Hensley; brothers Kolton Hensley, Paxton Moore, William Moore, Joseph Moore; sister Shelby Moore; grandparents Raulie and Diane Conger; cat brother Rocky; cat sisters Annabelle and Junipurr; and fish brother Steve.
He is preceded in death by his grandpa Larry Meek who was at the gates of Heaven to welcome his sweet grand puppy home.
I know I’m just a dog but…
If you feel sad, I’ll be your smile.
If you cry, I’ll be your comfort.
And if someone breaks your heart,
we can use mine to live.
I’ll always be by your side.
