My Dearest Speedy. Our Little Fat Boy

My family and I recently made the hardest decision, having to end our 14 year old dog's pain and suffering. It all happened so quickly. I didn't expect it to be so soon. Just a few weeks ago he was perfectly fine, and just like that, everything went down hill.

It's only been a few days since we had to let him go. I didn't think it would cause me so much pain. Not a second goes by when I'm not thinking of him. I miss him so much. I miss his barking, I miss him scratching my door in the morning so he could get in bed with me and get some more sleep.

He was so good to me. Not only was he my best friend, he was a part of our family.

It's hard to accept the fact that he's no longer with us. I still constantly check his bed, just to see the reality. Sometimes I just wish he was there. He took a part of my heart, which only he can replace. I love him so much.

Only Dogs Give Love Without Reservation
by: Peter Hartley

My condolences for your loss.

Over the years, I have been forced to take that sad decision. And I cry, every time.

Dogs are with us for a purpose - to remind us of the value of True Love.

Be happy that "Speedy" came into your Life. One day, you will meet again. And you will be Happy Forever.
