Edith Anne Was My Love

by Monica
(California)

2 days ago, Edith died. And saying that, I might as well have said that my world died. I tried to be ready. I knew it would come. But I wasn't ready to say goodbye to the love of my life.

This dog rocked my world. Taught me love, the unconditional kind. Made me kind. Made me a mom. Made me better. I was saved by this incredible, smart, independent, sassy puppy.

I'm afraid today. Because of all the losses of my life....my mom, my dad in some ways, boys, men, jobs, friends. She was always there, always had a way of bringing things back to focus, and of making me smile in my tears.

Now, it's just tears. No loss will hurt as much. No hurt will be relieved as lovingly. I honor her and miss her today. And try to find a way.

Rest in peace, my little princess, rest now. Your work is done. Only happiness now. Only running, sticks, balls and treats. Oh, and BBQ steak. It's your right. Rest now.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. :-(

I lost my dog Trixie two months ago. I know your pain.
