Dear Bigfoot, My Best Friend

by Bun
(Houston, TX)

Since the first day we've been together, I've cherished all the moments we've had. For 5 and a half years, being with you has made my life so wonderful. You have always been there when I'm going through tough times, and you were always happy with me when I was feeling great.

You were my first dog. You were everything. You brought out my true sides. I found happiness the moment you walked into my life. My family have accepted and loved you, and you loved them back.

It is almost a week now that you have been gone. I'm still trying to cope with the loss and be positive. It is very hard, but I am managing. I am sorry I wasn't there every moment to keep from you harm. I tried my best and sometimes it wasn't good enough.

I have accepted that in this world, nothing is perfect. To live is to suffer. I am suffering from the pain of losing you, while you, your suffering has ended.

I will always think of you, each and every day. Our family, our friends, we all miss you very much. I know that we will meet again. Wherever you are, we will find each other again.
