Dedicated to Our Crazy Dog That Left Us Too Soon

by Cleo
(Mauritius)

Dear Simba,

I have never imagined that you'd leave us so soon, and under such circumstances. It was untimely and entirely unexpected since we all thought you were finally recovering.

I don't know if there's a rainbow bridge or if there's another realm we know nothing about but I truly hope, with all my heart, that you are running freely and painlessly somewhere sunny and beautiful.

You have given us hard times, but no words can describe the joy you gave me when you'd jump around or rest your head on my lap. You were weird and stubborn. You never liked to obey or take your meds.

It was heartbreaking to watch you suffer so much. I wish I could have had done more for you.

Wherever you are, be well. I love you.
