A Beloved and True Friend
This is for my best friend of fourteen years, Sophie. She was my dog. There is a hole in my heart that will take along time to heal.
The other two family dogs are looking for their friend. They go to where she always would lay, wondering where she is.
I am feeling very guilty for my beloved dog's last days. It was the weekend, we were trying to make it through till Monday morning. I held her tight, petting her head. She was shaking, crying and very limp. My Sophie girl suffered, I fear, and it was my fault. Her last breath was around 2:00 am, Sunday morning.
I never should have let her die at home, suffering. The last picture I took was about three weeks before she passed. Every time I look at her eyes in that photo, I cannot help but cry. It was then that she was telling me, "Mom, it is time for me to go." Listen to what your pet tells you.
Sophie, you will forever be in my heart.
Love, your person
