Joy. Obedient, Loyal, Affectionate and Beloved German Shepherd

by Carlo C.
(Treviso, Italy)

I chose you among all the puppies that shiny spring day, 15 years ago.

You lived a long life, with a family who respected and loved you as a good dog like you deserved.

You gave us loyalty, love, and we had a lot of fun together.

Today you died resting your head in my arms while I was cuddling you for the last time, like I used to do when you were a little puppy and I was a teenager. Death came fast and apparently without pain, but my heart broke up when you let your head on my lap, and I didn't know I could suffer that much.

I hope that where you're now there's someone who enjoys throwing the tennis-ball and never gets tired. And I hope there are plenty of juicy bones up there, only for you.

Maybe someday we will meet again, I really hope so.

Rest in peace my dear friend, Joy.

Mi mancherai tanto.

Carlo
