I just want you to know that I miss you terribly. A huge chunk of my heart is missing. I’m lost and empty. The house is not the same without you. I miss coming home from work and you greeting me with your yipes. I miss sniffing your face and giving you kisses. I miss the smell of your paws (corn chips!). I miss you following me around while I would fold clothes and put away the laundry. I miss you waking me up in the middle of the night so you could burrow underneath the covers because you were cold. Your time with us was so short, only 3 and a half years. It’s so unfair, I was looking forward to more walks, more road trips. Everything we did was based on how we could include you. You were my first real dog. I fed you, bathed you, walked you, wiped your little bum and wiped your paws. I loved buying you clothes and new treats to try. You were a freaking rock star whenever we went out, everyone saying how cute you were and always wondering what kind of dog you were. I just want you back. No one will ever replace you, you will forever own a piece of my heart. I never knew how much I would come to love you. It hurts so much right now. I’m happy that your not suffering or in pain anymore, saying goodbye to you was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I’m still not ready to let you go, I’m not done grieving. One day I’ll be ok and feel whole enough to share part of my heart with another. But until then, I love you and miss you and wish you were here beside me.
