Holly, My Best Friend Ever - You Were Always There

Dear Holly,

I never knew how much a simple little beagle could mean to me until you came into my life. The first day we got you, you ran away and you had the whole neighborhood out chasing you. You became a part of me.

Holls, we have been through so much together. We rescued you because your old family never had time for you. Holl, we made time for you. Every soccer, softball, baseball, football, lacrosse, figure skating, hockey and cheerleading event, you were there rooting for us, well, howling at us, haha. You were there waiting for us after school.

I loved when it was a snow day because we got to spend the day together. I remember our first snow day. You loved the snow so much. :) You kept sniffing like crazy and then you sunk in the snow. It was so cute.

And how could I forget your friend Copper, the only dog you got along with? You loved each other. Who knows, your probably playing with him up there right now, running free together :). All the trips to Cape Cod, you always did love the car. You were definitely a people dog hahaha. Even at the dog park you just sat on the bench.

You were one of a kind, a truly special dog. And the times when boys would come around, you let me know if they were good or not, even though I never listened. I remember when I was truly at my darkest moment in life, you stuck by me the whole time.

When dad left us, I know you were hurt too, but you stayed by all of us. I'll never forget that first night. Jake and I slept in the living room and you stayed with us that whole night. You often caught our tears but it never bothered you. You always stuck by us. And when Dave and David came you were there for them too. :) You completed me and our family.

You were more than just a beagle. You were my best and truest friend. You were always there and you'll always be in my heart. You were my childhood dog and most of all my best friend. You always made me feel better. I never wanted to ever think this day would come.

I guess it was your time and I hope you had a great life with us. You were the best dog a girl could ask for. I wish I could have been there for you in your last days. Please look over us. You will always be in my heart. <3

I Love You <3 HOLLY DAISY BELL <3 love you forever and always 09/27/1998-03/03/2012
