My Dearest Scrappy, You Will Be Missed

by Hector
(Ontario CA)

2 days ago I lost my best friend, Scrappy, who was like a son to me. I had gotten him while I was going through some tough times, and he helped get me through them.

I loved Scrappy with all my heart. He was tho most gentle, caring dog ever. His character was amazing.

He had lost one eye due to an infection and had to have surgically removed. But that in no way affected his happiness. He was always very joyful and playful since he was still less 2 years old.

I always knew that losing him one day would hurt me but not to this extent. He was my world, you see, and without him now I feel lost.

I'll never ever forget you, little Scrappy. I feel guilty and I'm so sorry for what happened to you that day. You will forever be missed.

I truly hope that dogs really do go to heaven and that you and I will reunite again one day. I love you, papas. I'm dying without you. You have no idea the emptiness I now feel in my heart.

Rest in peace, son.

Best Friend and Companion
by: Jim

I feel your pain. I lost my best friend and companion of 9 1/2 years, 11 days ago. Gunny meant the world to me. I too will see him in heaven when my time comes.

I feel the emptiness when I come home and he is not at the door to greet me like he did daily.

Keep your head up, you will see your Scrappy again!
