Ambar, My Baby Girl

Ambar, born October 1996 - May 23rd 2012

She was the joy that woke me up every morning. I couldn't wait to get out of bed and see her, kiss her and give her a big hug.

She was my Christmas present when I was 3 years old. I don't have memory without her. She was a staffordshire bull terrier whom we called Ambar because of her fur colour. She had a black mask. The most gorgeous baby I have ever seen.

She was so playful and loving. And she was very strong. She was always a little strong dog. Always there when needed and always open for a cuddle and kisses. She knew when something was wrong with you and would give you comfort. She loved sunbathing too.

I gave her all my trust and love and she will always have it forever. We were lucky to have her for so long. And she fought till the very last moment. Even though her body wouldn't go more, she did it for us.

I have never loved anything as more as I have loved her. Her mate Lucky (my other dog) will miss her very much too.

I lost my breath as I saw my brother taking her away to end her suffering. I couldn't believe that she was leaving.

I know in my heart that she would have lived forever with us if she could have.

She has given me the best 16 years of my life and I will never ever forget her. It hasn't been a day yet and I am missing her so much. I am dreading waking up tomorrow and not seeing her.

I love you, Ambar. I always will and I am looking forward to being able to see you again, my princess.

I once held an angel in my arms.
